The PPU-P pick-and-place unit offers up to 120 cycles/min. The unit’s valve-control unit actuates the gripper connected to the PPU-P when placed directly over the individual target position.

Unlike its pneumatic counterparts, the unit’s horizontal and vertical motion overlap and are positively driven by a curved roller, which reduces cycle times by one-third. At a 145-mm horizontal stroke, 45-mm (20-mm linear) vertical stroke, and up to 1-kg moving mass, the unit offers a cycle time of 0.63 sec including 2 × 50-msec gripping time.

Horizontal stroke can be adjusted by up to 12 mm/side to balance build-up tolerances. Both end positions can be adjusted by 15 mm, independent from each other, and differences in height between the mounting and depositing position can be balanced without an intermediate stop.
