SRU plus 20-S
SCHUNK Inc. Posted 05/19/2013The SRU plus 20-S is SCHUNK’S new high speed addition to the SRU plus series of economical universal rotary units. Compared with other available rotary units of the same size, this high speed module can increase the number of cycles by up to 100%.
With lightweight parts, the module enables rotation times starting at 0.3 s and up to 3700 cycles per hour. A load up to three times or more than that of a standard rotary unit of the same size is possible.
The secret of such high performance combined with process stability is a patented shock absorbing system that combines an elastomer with an oil-damped shock absorber. Arranged in a stack, the high performance damping enables significantly shorter cycle times and a higher number of cycles, and the rotation of much higher mass inertias or loads.
