Machine identification

I recently bought these 2 machines at an auction as they have lots of heavy duty linear motion components. There are quite a few vacuum components along with large Parker servo motors and other Parker linear motion gadgets.

Does anyone have an idea what they may have been used for?

That makes sense as the items came from an office furniture manufacturer. There was a pallet of large Parker extrusions offered, some of which had servos attached that I didn't win unfortunately. It would seem that these may have been part of a larger custom built system as there are no other brand/manufacturer tags on the items. It's a shame, but there's a good chance I'll wind up dismantling them for use in other projects.

I also picked up a nice Nederman dust collector which appears to be an E-PAK 150 model in a nice shade of blue. It should compliment my Mechmate nicely (please excuse the poor cell phone image quality).

I picked up the units today and discovered that I'm now in possession of 2 Parker HZR100 vertical actuator units with Mitsubishi 1.5KW servos. I suspect these could be used as the Z axis of a large scale overhead gantry router. The extrusion is 100mmx1000mm and the longest of the 2 is 1828mm.

If anyone has any ideas, I'm all ears. I really don't have an application for them at the present time.
