ESD compatible gripper modules
Now New! Safe handling of electronic assemblies with the new grippers of the IEG ESD series
The new grippers of the IEG ESD series are now available for handling sensitive electronic components and assemblies for industry 4.0. The completely conductive construction of the IEG ESD gripping modules allows safe and ESD-compliant handling of electronic components and assemblies. This is particularly important in the field of THT placement, the singling and palletizing of assemblies or the general handling in the SMD production process and in automated end-of-line testers.
The clever way to grip
The gripping modules of the IEG series have an integrated gripping control using a hybrid force controller to guarantee a high performance gripping process even in difficult applications. External position sensors and manual adjustable limit switches are no longer required as the IEG offers an integrated high resolution position sensor. It provides virtual limit switches that can be parameterized easily over IO-Link. As no external sensors are needed anymore, the interfering contours are minimized and the gripping process becomes much more reliable.
Model based Force Control
High performance force control
The integrated force control even allows a reliable gripping of brittle, fragile and flexible parts. A modern model based approach is used to determine the actual gripping force from the device parameters. The IEG gripper uses this data for a closed loop force control to ensure highly dynamic and smooth movements even with low gripping forces. Up to 4 different grips can be configured inside the gripper to optimally fit the workpieces.
Take full control of your handling process
Thanks to its integrated IO-Link interface, the IEG series connects seamlessly to fieldbus environments and PLCs of various vendors. This simplifies control, configuration and diagnosis of the gripper and gives you maximum control over your manufacturing process.
Always have an eye on your machine
At any time the IEG provides you characteristic parameters of the gripping process over IO-Link. This enables you to query e.g. the actual part width as well as the remaining gripping cycles to the next inspection to schedule the maintenance intervals well in advance. Always keep your production in optimal condition with integrated gripping modules by Weiss Robotics.
Superior quality for highest demands
The robust and smooth running linear guides allow a precise and sensitive gripping over the complete stroke. As another advantage the gripping force is nearly independent of the finger length. The maintenance-free brushless DC motor provides a high agility and guarantees a long lifetime.
