Matara brings gripper tech to Automation UK

230519_MataraMatara UK, specialist in automation, pneumatics and linear motion products, is pleased to be exhibiting at the inaugural Automation UK exhibition from 20-21st June 2023 at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Supported by the British Automation and Robotics Association (BARA), this new event will showcase the latest industrial products and services, robots, robotic systems, systems integration, automation control parts and systems, sensors, and machine safety available in the UK today.

For Matara, the key product focus on its stand will be linear actuators which, along with the motor, are the driving force of a linear motion system. Linear motion systems are used extensively in industrial automation applications to move parts of a machine in a straight line – up and down or back and forth – in a pre-determined and controlled manner. Linear motion systems ensure smooth, accurate, reliable movement, and are simple and cost-effective to maintain.

Matara offers a substantial range of belt driven and ballscrew linear actuators, including the best-selling MTB and MTS series belt driven actuators, which will be on display at Automation UK, including a working version using a Gapp Automation control unit; Gapp Automation has recently joined Matara’s parent company, Rubix.

For any actuator to perform consistently at its optimum level it needs the correctly specified motor, gearbox coupling and control system. Matara will therefore also be exhibiting its linear motors, servo motors, stepper systems, gearboxes and automation solutions.

Other Matara products and services aimed at the automation and robotics sector include aluminium profile safety guard frames, pneumatic grippers, linear rail and guides, rolled ballscrews and ballscrew nuts, linear motors.

Commenting on the company’s decision to exhibit at Automation UK, Japh Humphries, Matara’s UK sales and commercial manager, said: “The robotics and automation markets are a growth area for Matara. We have experience in this sector and we have the products. Automation UK will provide us with the opportunity to showcase these to the right people. We are excited to be involved in this new event and are looking forward to welcoming visitors on to our stand.”
