Company’s HP70 Pick-and-Place direct-drive component is thin (60 mm wide), compact and fast at over 100 cycles per minute with a repeat accuracy of 0.01mm. Product only brakes on one axis when transitioning from full-speed horizontal movement to vertical movement, eliminating the time-consuming start of a second axis. Key to product’s design is a drive concept that works with two linear motor axes that feature a unique ‘knuckle’ design on the y/z axis that virtually eliminates the need for another linear motor on the z axis. Two horizontal axes with the 125mm, 225mm or 325mm stroke length are arranged in parallel above one another, achieving a more compact unit, and then connected via a kinematic unit, guaranteeing a vertical stroke of 70mm.
