High Speed Pick and Place

One of the core applications for SMAC actuators is high speed pick and place, particularly of small, delicate parts such as SMT chips and wristwatch components.

Advantages of the SMAC solution are:

    • Very high speed and acceleration (up to 15g (~150ms-2))
    • Force control = softland for handling delicate parts
    • Can pick and place at any height
    • Long life (hundreds of millions of cycles)
    • Fully programmable in position, velocity, acceleration and force
    • Micron and sub-micron accuracy
    • No air supply needed
    • Integrated multiple axis units available
    • Integrated vacuum path (with optional filter)
    • Break-away shafts and custom tips available
    • Proven technology – thousands of units in the field
