Yaskawa will exhibit its F20-F35 high-speed pick-and-place solution at the Motek 2009 trade show in Stuttgart, Germany.

The new linear-drive-based handling system combines absolute precision with maximum dynamics and a long service life and provides an alternative to mechanical cam-controlled handling systems, according to the company.

The system picks up, moves and deposits weights of up to 1.5kg at cyberspeed.

The twin-axis module is suitable for highly dynamic applications that also require good repeatability.

Typical applications are industrial handling and assembly, measurement and testing, medical engineering pick-and-place systems in electronics and applications in the packaging and food industries.

The F20-F35 twin-axis module requires no mechanical elements for load transmission.

Its linear bearings are designed for a long service life, ensuring high availability and reliability.

The system’s linear motors feature high energy efficiency and low energy costs.

The system is free of backlash and permits highly precise positioning.

Its warp-resistant structure allows for dynamic moves with short positioning times, high positioning stability and high machine performance.

The new handling system is supplied as an integrated, ready-to-install solution.

All contained linear motors, servo amplifiers and machine controllers with IEC 61131 programming are designed and manufactured by Yaskawa.

All components are matched, allowing for the creation of compact solutions with maximum performance.
