Automate 2019: Bimba Automation to Demonstrate Automated Solutions to Meet Evolving Challenges of Manufacturing
Bimba | Vaccon Posted 04/03/2019
Bimba, an industry-leading innovator of pneumatic, hydraulic, electric and vacuum motion control, will discuss and demonstrate its automated solutions specifically designed to meet the evolving challenges of today’s manufacturing. Bimba’s ever-progressing technological advances will be explained and demonstrated at Automate 2019 at McCormick Place in Chicago, April 8-11 (Booth N8434). They include ideal applications for pick and place operations such as CNC machine automation, packaging and palletizing, and assembly, among many others.
Highlights of Bimba’s real-world solutions include:
- Bimba’s Collaborative Robot Vacuum Tool (CRVT) end-of-arm tool end effector in action on a Universal Robot®. The UR3 robot will feature a standard CRVT that includes a valve, vacuum switch or sensor, a maintenance-free single stage venturi, and vacuum cups in a single unit picking and placing boxes. An additional CRVT with a unique suction adapter designed specifically for bottling handling solutions will also be on display on a Productive Robotics OB7 Robot.
- Bimba’s IntelliAxis® T-Bot Robot employs 2-axis linear motion control and a unique single belt transport system that serpentines around the X and Z axes. IntelliAxis eliminates the need for a motor in the Z-axis while using two coordinated motors in the X-axis. These configurations coordinate control for complex motions such as circles, ellipses, and sine waves.
- Bimba’s recently released PA Series NFPA Actuator offers lightweight construction and modern design with flexible mounting configurations such as an Auto-Cushioning System and magnetic pistons. These actuators are ideal for everyday pneumatic linear motion applications where versatility and modularity are valued.
