WEISS North America, Inc: Compact pick-and-place series

Pneumatic systems traditionally require the purchase, set-up, and commission of two separate axes; the HP series’ integrated, preconfigured, turnkey systems are user-programmable in the Y and X direction. The HP 140T Pick-and-Place units offer fast acceleration of up to 40 m/sec2 and repeat accuracy of 0.01 mm.

Additional features of the HP 140T include a control system and automated lubrication concept. Complex commissioning and parameter setting procedures of standard commercial handling systems are also streamlined by Weiss Application Software (WAS). Utilized for fast, convenient, and secure commissioning of all freely programmable Weiss components, WAS features a highly-intuitive and uniform graphic user interface.
Even faster integration into customers’ systems is simplified by a high degree of interface compatibility including: Profi-Bus, CANopen, DeviceNet, RS-232, or Ethernet.

The HP 140 series continues to evolve as users can now choose between several distinct product performance versions including:  up to 100 mm vertical stroke; up to 400 mm horizontal stroke; certified to air purity class 6 in line with ISO 14644-1.
