The HP70 Pick-and-Place direct-drive component is thinner (60mm wide) than any linear motor or pneumatic module currently available. Despite its compact design, it surpasses all previous units when it comes to speed, achieving more than 100 cycles per minute with repeat accuracy of 0.01mm. Key to the design is a new drive concept that works with two linear motor axes that feature a "knuckle" design on the y/z axis that virtually eliminates the need for another linear motor for the z axis. Essentially, two horizontal axes with 125, 225 or 325mm stroke length are arranged in parallel above one another and then connected via a kinematic unit. This guarantees a vertical stroke of 70mm.
