Extra-class of High-speed-kinematics from Stäubli
Stäubli Robotics Posted 08/01/2012New Stäubli TP80 Fast Picker: The next generation of four-axis high speed Pickers – Setting new benchmarks for Pick & Place Industry Applications
Stäubli Robotics is introducing the TP80 Fast Picker, an ultrafast four-axis new technology of high-speed pickers for standard pick & place applications. This innovative series of high-speed pickers deliver greater speeds of more than 200 picks per minute, and more flexibility at a lower cost to all markets. Stäubli has long set the standard for high speed and precision in robotic performance, ensuring the highest possible throughput and shortest cycle times.
This new robot represents the latest innovation – one that is more agile and lightweight while delivering extremely fast cycle times while maintaining high precision with homogenous
repeatability “throughout the entire work envelope”, unlike rival delta robots. A simple base or wall mounting eliminates the need for a large, costly gantry, further enhancing the robot’s cost effectiveness and ease of integration. Additional advantages include a slim forearm for moving
into slotted machine openings as well as harness and user lines feed-through the Z-axis that are all internal. The TP80 Fast Picker is also extremely rigid, and competitively priced offering an economical alternative for numerous standard applications without sacrificing quality,
durability or performance.
The TP80 robot is available in a 4 axis version, offering great flexibility depending on the user’s needs. Standard features include a maximum payload of 1 kg, 200 picks per minute (sustained); 800 mm reach, and a Z-axis stroke of 100 mm. Additional features include very high rigidity, repeatability of +/- 0.05 mm at IP65 Protection Class when equipped with bellows.
User lines such as pneumatic (4 and 6 mm) and electrical lines (4 twisted shielded pairs) are protected inside the arm and are available at the tool flange. Optional features include 2 solenoid valves, user installation and bellows. The TP80 is controlled by the CS8 controller series, a single control platform able to pilot Stäubli robots. Various VAL software packages are available and perfectly suited for all end users, integrators, OEMs and machine-builders. This enables the TP80 to become the first choice for a large variety of applications traditionally requiring delta robots until today. In addition to packaging, the robot is ideally suited to the needs of all industries such as PV/solar power, pharmaceuticals, consumer goods, food, as well as electronics and automotive. Typical applications include high-speed pick and place, assembly, material handling, packaging and machine tending.
