    Treotham Sydney has moved to Macquarie Park

    Treotham Automation was established in Sydney in 1992, selling chains and accessories out of a garage by founder and current owner Mikael Paltoft. Since then, Treotham has expanded it’s product range through energy chains, chainflex cables, polymer bearings and flexible conduit systems. This resulted in the opening of the Brookvale warehouse along Sydney's Northern Beaches. The steady growth for Treotham has allowed the business to open warehouses in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Auckland in New Zealand.

    Freedom for articulated arm robots: igus’ 7th axis from Treotham extends the working space by up to 400 percent

    Articulated arm robots can travel over six metres, quadrupling their working space: the 7th axis is now compatible with all lightweight articulated arm robots worldwide thanks to a simple Plug & Play kit. So far, models from Universal Robots, Epson and the igus robolink series from Treotham have benefited from this increased mobility. Now Omron, Franka Emika, Doosan, Yuanda Robotics and many other lightweight robotics suppliers are joining the list.

    Compact rotation with plastic: igus develops a new cost-effective rotary energy chain

    It is light, compact, and made entirely of plastic: the new PRM (Polymer Rotation Module) rotary igus energy supply system from Treotham. Specifically for tight rotational movements in cables and hoses, igus has now developed a system consisting of a polymer energy chain and a low-friction plastic guide trough. Users can increase the service life of their machines and systems with buying costs up to 73% less than those of a comparable steel guide trough. The new e-chain system expands the igus range of complete sets that can be ordered directly from Treotham Automation.

    New MGB2 modular EtherCAT P with FSoE

    If there is one area where applications are becoming ever-more complex, it’s safety engineering. EUCHNER has not only kept up with this trend with its Multifunctional Gate Box (MGB) safety door system, but has gone a step further by employing modular design to make the MGB2 Modular fully customisable for maximum optimisation. The modular system features a separate locking module, bus module and submodules, making it suitable for implementing a wide range of additional functions.

    Wenglor’s weCat3D MLZL 2D/3D profile sensors enable exact seam placement in robot welding cells

    Automated weld seam tracking in robot welding cells is a complex task in a harsh industrial environment. The micrometer-accurate detection of the guide point with different types of joint by 2D/3D profile sensors is one of the most effective solutions for this challenge. In combination with wenglor’s uniVision software, the new weCat3D MLZL 2D/3D profile sensor from Treotham not only combines the necessary precision and profile quality, but also offers convenient installation, integration, robustness and user-friendliness.
