Included with the unit is the company's DualVee linear motion technology featuring specialized components for robotic applications such as precision guide wheels and integrated drive systems. The DualVee technology use a self-cleaning action for resistance to environmental factors and debris, aiding longevity of the system. 

Also benefitting the durability of the system is its robust construction. Use of high-quality components and automatic lubrication help to reduce wear and maintenance. 

According to Bishop-Wisecarver, the DualVee linear motion technology ensures smooth and precise motion for the transfer of robots in various applications. This helps customers to ensure the accuracy and repeatability of their operations. 

Included on the robot transfer unit are travel limit sensors which detect travel limit and assist with homing of the robot as it moves along the unit. 

A range of accessories are available as well to customize the system to specific application needs such as:

  • cable carriers and mounting kits
  • travel bumper mounting kits
  • limit sensor kits.
