WEISS Pick and Place travels the world
1000th HP140 sold
4 years after its market launch, the HP140 Pick&Place from WEISS has passed its practical test with flying colours. Having sold over 1000 units, the HP140 is now being used in numerous sectors. These include the automotive supply industry, cleanroom applications, assembly technology in China, battery manufacture in the US and switches/sockets in France.
There are good reasons for the product's success story. The HP140T integrates a horizontal and a vertical axis in a single module and can move directly to all points along these two axes. The fact that it can be freely programmed and its compact, robust design also open up new opportunities for users. Two particularly impressive features of the HP 140T are its fast acceleration of up to 40 m/sec2 and its repeat accuracy of 0.01 mm.
The HP140T overcomes the limitations of traditional pneumatic systems. Where customers previously had to purchase, set up and commission two separate axes, with the HP140T they now have access to an integrated, preconfigured, turnkey system. Compact and robust. Including control system and automated lubrication concept. Users can also choose between several product versions: the HP140T with 65 mm vertical stroke, the HP with 100 mm vertical stroke – the latter of which is also suitable for picking and placing larger parts – or the new cleanroom certified HP140T CL6.
Anyone familiar with the complex commissioning and parameter setting procedure of standard commercial handling systems will be truly amazed by the HP140T. Positions are taught and travel sequences set up within just a few minutes. To put it plainly, this means less installation work and a faster time to production. This is all made possible by WAS (WEISS Application Software) – a uniform, end-to-end software platform for fast and easy commissioning of all freely programmable WEISS components.
Its fast integration into your systems is simplified even further by a high degree of interface compatibility, including Profi-Bus, CANopen, DeviceNet, RS-232 or Ethernet.
