Product Announcement from SCHUNK Inc.
The new SCHUNK Pick & Place unit PPU-E30 is ideally suited for highly dynamic pick & place applications that require a large degree of repeat accuracy. With an amazing cycle time of 0.58 seconds, including switching and gripping times at a 40 mm vertical stroke, a 120 mm horizontal stroke, a moving mass of 2 kg and a repeat accuracy of less than 0.01 millimeters, it is setting benchmarks in assembly automation.
All the utility lines for power supply, sensor, and pneumatic systems for the PPU-E30 are plugged into the rearward stationary connection. No sensitive moving motor cables are required.
The narrow housing as well as the media supply via the back panel, allow a compact, maintenance- and assembly-friendly side-by-side construction of several units next to each other. Two integrated linear encoder systems control the vertical and horizontal motion and assure a high repeat accuracy. Intelligent regulators control the cantilever arm as well as the actuators without a higher-ranking control unit. The required software is already integrated, thus the unit can be set up by simple Plug & Play.
Up to six integrated valves, operated by one single air feeding, supplies all the pneumatic actuators. This minimizes the compressed air and consequently the energy consumption, and provides an enormous cycle frequency.
