SMW Autoblok Group yesterday launched its new quick-change PRS Robotic Device Changer line, which may be mixed with quite a lot of pneumatic grippers and C40 Inductive Couplers for contactless, wear-free vitality and sign transmission.

The Wheeling, Unwell.-based firm famous that these new merchandise allow robotic grippers, instruments, and different finish effectors to be modified rapidly. It added that this could enhance cycle time and productiveness and permits for simple motion, from small elements to heavy hundreds.

PRS Device Changer household designed for robots

SMW Autoblok stated the PRS Device Changer consists of many options to boost its efficiency and sturdiness. It’s obtainable in a number of sizes, and the physique’s inside mechanism is case-hardened to make sure larger rigidity and longer life.

The system consists of pneumatic opening, a spring clamp + TURBO mechanism, and an non-obligatory electrical sign interface module for enhanced performance. With six pneumatic connectors for media transmission between the altering unit and the gripper mounting, the instrument changer ensures seamless operation, asserted SMW.

The 55 PRS Pneumatic Device Changer gives pneumatic operation, spring clamping + TURBO, and spectacular liftable weight capability. The corporate stated it gives repeatability with the desired variety of pneumatic connections, pull-down drive, and stress for environment friendly and dependable robotic operations. An non-obligatory digital sign interface module is on the market.

As well as, SMW stated its vary of pneumatic grippers, together with the 2PXS, 2PXM, and 2PXL fashions, are Proofline-sealed for minimal upkeep and IP 64-rated.

With gripping drive facilitated by an oval piston and two-finger, low weight design, PX grippers present spring drive mechanisms for each exterior and inside gripping.

The grippers additionally incorporate revolutionary sensor know-how, together with magnetic switches, inductive sensors, or analog position-measuring methods.

SMW touted an air-purge connection, including that the grippers are drop in-compatible with commonplace common grippers available in the market.

C40 Inductive Coupler consists of sign transmission

The C40 Inductive Coupling System is designed for contact-free transmission of energy and information between transferring/rotating and stationary elements. SMW stated it gives a substitute for commonplace mechanical pins, eliminating put on and upkeep issues. It helps environment friendly operations for robotic instruments and pallet changers, based on the corporate.

Appropriate for end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) purposes, C40 options commonplace mounting plates for varied instrument changers available on the market. Key options embrace contact-free transmission of vitality and alerts, vitality transmission of 15W (24V), sign transmission through IO-Hyperlink or 6xPNP, 2xAnalog 0-10Va cubical coupling system measuring 40x45x22 mm, and a transmission distance starting from 0 to three mm (0.11 in.).

“The elimination of contact-based, wear-prone pin connections minimizes downtime and put on prices, guaranteeing most effectivity and productiveness,” stated SMW Autoblok Group.
