The KX2 Linear Rail works seamlessly with the KX2 collaborative laboratory robot to provide extended access for larger systems. The KX2 Linear Rail is controlled via the same software that controls the KX2 Robot and is treated as simply an additional robot axis.
Workspace: Increases the reach of the robot by the stroke of the selected linear rail model

The KX2 Linear Rail offers innovative benefits that make it the ideal choice for handling microplates within the laboratory:
A maximum speed of 0.75 m/s allows the linear rail to move quickly from one end of a large system to the other, increasing efficiency.
The helical planetary gearing and belt drive keeps audible noise to a minimum.
Simply move the linear rail and robot to the correct position and with a touch of a button the teaching is complete. Quick, simple, and revolutionary.
Intelligent motion control
The linear rail and robot execute synchronized motion simultaneously. This improves efficiency and simplifies setup.
Easy to integrate
USB interface provides easy connection to host PC. Linear rail and KX2 can be added to existing systems, expanding capability and throughput.
Standard I/O built-in
Digital and Analogue I/O available at the linear rail connector panel for interfacing and controlling other devices.
Every application is unique and with a wide selection of options including linear rail length and various KX2 robot options, the linear rail and robot are suited for most applications.
Manufactured exclusively by Peak Robotics
The KX2 Linear Rail is designed, manufactured, and supported directly by Peak through its global offices.
