Fast pallet change

Now of up to 1,000 kg

09-16-2013 - The compact SCHUNK robot couplings VERO-S NSR continue to set standards at high-efficiency, robot-supported pallet change on machine tools: with the module VERO-S NSR maxi 220 the system is becoming even in the heavyweight class a superior favorite for pallet handling. It transfers torques up to 4,000 Nm, and can reliably handle up to 1,000 kg (at 800 x 800 mm). Due to the developed locking system with patented strokes (fast and clamping stroke) from SCHUNK, such large masses can be handled. Locking is done form-fit, and is self-retaining. All the components of the powerhouse are made of hardened, stainless steel. In order to ensure a process-reliable function in challenging environments, it is completely sealed against chips and coolant. Moreover, a standardized cleaning function ensures a chip-free surface contact between pallet and robot coupling. For process monitoring, locking and unlocking conditions are monitored via a position sensor, and the presence of pallet via an inductive proximity switch. Repeat accuracy amounts to 0.02 mm.


Upgrade of the modules up to 350 kg

The innovative family-owned company also completes the VERO-S NSR sizes with smaller and medium-sized sizes: in order to achieve maximum process stability, these standard modules are also equipped with a cleaning function now. Steel inlays at the contact areas make the robot couplings extremely wear-resistant. Despite the upgrade, the module weight remains unchanged. Due to the consequent lightweight design, the modules with optimized interfering contours weigh 400 g (NSR mini 100), 1,600 g (NSR 160). They are suitable for reliable handling of pallets up to 75 kg (at 200 x 200 mm), or up to 350 kg (at 400 x 400 mm). Together in a team with the new heavy-duty module NSR maxi 220, they are covering the complete range from 1 to 1,000 kg.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
