Schunk RVK “Collect and Place”

Monday January 18, 2016
Jan. 18, 2016 - The Schunk RVK has a revolving head which boasts easy application of a “collect and place” principle where it is able to collect several workpieces before transferring them.

The gripper in the working position can be operated independently from the other grippers, which remain in the gripped state when not in use. The RVK promises lower cycle times and fewer transport strokes in a pick and place system and because of its integrated valve technology, fewer valves are required as well, says the company. It can be used in clean to slightly contaminated environments such as assembly or packaging areas, or wherever fast cycles are required, notes Schunk. The RVK can be mounted to the Schunk ERS 135, 170, or the RST-D 087. It can also be adapted to mount on other rotary units, such as another rotary module or a robot arm, as long as there is a through-bore available.
