Parker Hannifin has launched a range of modular automation and robotics kits, designed to help customers cut the cost of automation for existing low-volume manual or semi-automated processes.

In addition to simple twin-axis assemblies and integrated multiple-axis gantry and palletising robots, Parker is offering a custom design and engineering facility for applications where standard systems are unsuitable.

The modular automation kits are designed for self-assembly on-site by the customer or the company’s engineering team.

A typical modular automation kit incorporates all the components, including framework, motors, gearboxes, drives, sensors and cables, to construct a simple linear handling system.

This can be extended through the addition of extra modules, while complex multiple-axis gantry, assembly or packaging systems with a sophisticated control infrastructure can be constructed on-site or at one of Parker’s factories for delivery as a pre-configured and fully tested system.

Based on standard Parker electromechanical, pneumatic, drive and control technologies, the latest range of modular automation kits is capable of delivering speeds of up to 5m/sec over extended stroke lengths, with precision and repeatability typically to within plus or minus 0.05mm, with load handling up to 1,600kg.
