hello handling: Compact handling  of small parts

In future, it will be possible to perform many handling tasks previously reserved for Scara robots more cost-effectively, compactly and easily using the rotary lifting module EHMB from Festo. This applies particularly to fragile small parts. The rotary lifting module has similar movement patterns to a Scara robot for loading and unloading processes.

In a handling system for delicate small parts such as CDs or wafers, the electric handling unit HSW-AE from Festo takes data media from a storage station, rotates them 90 degrees and forwards them to the arm of the rotary lifting module EHMB. This then sorts the CDs into different stacks with rapid rotations and places them there. Linear and rotary movements have been implemented in a single unit for the first time. Both axes are independent of each other and are freely programmable. The EHMB is characterised by its high dynamics: a rotation of 180 degrees with a load of around one kilogram can be achieved within just 0,25 seconds. This reduces positioning times and thereby increases machine output. pb

System engineering made easy

In order to ensure maximum productivity during manufacturing, today‘s complex machine functions must be mapped in the application software. In contrast to optimization of electrical or mechanical components, which is increasingly limited by physical and economical constraints, the full potential for productivity improvements can still be tapped with this approach.

In order to make software accessible to individuals besides specialists, Baumüller has launched a powerful tool on the market: The ProMaster Engineering Framework unburdens the programmer during software development and commissioning. This means that the programmer can focus his full attention on the main task – the functional mapping of machine functions.

To meet these requirements, Baumüller developed the ProMaster Engineering Framework based on Microsoft.NET Techonology. The customer benefits: A single tool can be used to develop future automation solutions, regardless of the extent to which safety engineering is required. The result is a significant increase in profitability and operability. pb
