Pick&Place for the assembly of micro switches

Lower energy costs: HP handling units with direct drive instead of pneumatic Pick&Place modules

Challenge

Cycle times of 1.5 seconds are required for the feeding of workpieces. Pneumatic modules are overstretched here, because the higher the air consumption, the higher the operating costs.

Solution

Automated assembly system for electromechanical sensors of UBH Mechanical Engineering. Three WEISS rotary indexing tables connected in series and eleven HP 140 and HP 70 Pick&Place units with direct drive achieve a positioning accuracy of 0.02 millimetres at a cycle time of 1.5 seconds. With regard to energy efficiency and dynamics, the handling modules with direct drive by far outclass a pneumatic solution. What's more, the user programmability ensures smooth acceleration processes.
