The Rotation and Swivel Of The Next Generation

SCHUNK has expanded its portfolio with two rotary modules for automation, ushering in a new era of rotary motion. This can certainly result to speculation about how rotating and swiveling will progress and where the potential lies.Be it high loads or short cycle times - rotary modules and swivel units are continuously under pressure to present even better performance when it comes to dealing with and installation. In recent years, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology, SCHUNK, has systematically grown its modular program for rotary movements, creating particularly dynamic, intelligent and adaptable hardware. The latest addition to the pneumatic segment is the SCHUNK SRM. The high-performance swivel unit outshines even the top seller SCHUNK SRU-plus and could soon lead the way as the new standard in pneumatic swiveling up to 180°.

Combined gripping and rotating with 24V

The world's most compact SCHUNK EGS electric gripping and swivel unit, enables continuous rotation of the gripper without electrical feed-through. Pre-loaded junction roller guides which are free from play ensure high-precision gripping and virtually constant gripping forces along the entire finger length. The rotary gripper module provided with standard connections is controlled either via fieldbus distributor or via digital I/O, meaning it is appropriate with all common control systems and no additional costs and delivery times needed to be taken into consideration for the peripherals. All of the control and power electronics for decentralized control of the motor are directly integrated into the module. There is no need for any valve terminals like on pneumatic rotary gripper modules or drive controllers in the electrical cabinet. This rescues space and a great deal of time when planning, procuring and commissioning. Both the speed of rotation and the gripping force can be regulated in several stages directly on the module by means of rotary switches. Angles of rotation between 30° and 270° can be attained. These are set mechanically directly on the module. Monitoring is possible via inductive proximity switches. Since the module is exclusively equipped with stationary, brushless and thus wear-free 24V DC motors, and does not need movable cables, slip rings or shock absorbers, it increases the process stability and availability of assembly plants. The noise level also drops.
