Series end effectors
The Impulse Multipick series end effectors for high-speed picking applications are now available from JLS Automation. Developed to achieve higher picking efficiencies that allow for fewer robots and a smaller footprint for the company’s Talon Series picking systems.
Design allows a robotic device, typically an ABB FlexPicker, to pick multiple products, orient them as required, and place them in groups. Picking rates reach 150 products/min, and the tool includes an ultra-compact actuator with vertical travel to position product on the tool as the picking sequence requires. Actual gripping of the product uses either mechanical or vacuum technology, depending on the application. Series accommodates 2 to 4 products/tool or robot, and tools are available for washdown or nonwashdown environments.
