Features & benefits

  • Unlike pneumatic units, horizontal and vertical motion overlap and are positively driven by a curved roller, reducing cycle time by one-third

  • 145-mm horizontal stroke, 45-mm (20-mm linear) vertical stroke, 1-kg moving mass; cycle time of 0.63 sec; 2 × 50-msec gripping time

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