Gantry style pick-and-place transfers are very useful in areas where there’s a need to pick components from one position and place in another. They are typically designed with a pair of overhead runway rails that support a powered trolley. The powered trolley can be provided with a pick up head that will attach automatically to the load being transferred. After picking the load, the head can raise vertically to allow the horizontal transfer of the load.
When the horizontal destination is reached, the pick head will automatically lower so that the load can be safely deposited.
Lauyans EPS pick and place transfer system applications include:
- Collecting and dispensing slave boards (typically 1 ½” plywood slabs) in an automated warehouse
- Steel manufacturing and steel fabricating industries
- Placement or removal of plastic tote lids
Applications that require transferring, collecting and dispensing steel sheets may be suited for vacuum attachment as well as magnetic pick up. Aluminum, composites and plastics are also handled by our equipment with vacuum attachment, mechanical grippers, forks or clamps, as the specific part and process dictate.
