The Swiss watch industry protects the legendary reputation of its watches with the quality label “Swiss Made”. This level of quality can only be achieved with fast and accurate automation equipment. This led Amax Automation AG to create a multifunctional palletizer – with robotic and handling systems such as the ready-to-install delta robot EXPT from Festo.
Maximum accuracy is required when inserting the watch parts.
The delta robot uses a specially developed vacuum gripper to pick up the parts from the conveyor belt and set these down in either a lattice tray or JEDEC tray.
The electric axis EGC-HD, famous for its rigidity and precision, moves a mechanical gripper horizontally. This lifts several parts at a time, swivels 90° and sets them down in a lattice tray.
