This is a ready-to-install functional module for transferring, feeding and removing small parts in highly confined spaces. The movement is positively guided in a link and enables very short cycle times. Depending on the industrial robot, a C or L-shaped movement is carried out. The movements in Y and Z direction are variable in the range up to 40 millimeters. Pick and place machines are designed for use with electric, servo-pneumatic or pneumatic actuators. Pre-assembled modules with attached actuator are also available. The interface to the workpiece allows different gripper types from Festo to be adapted.
