Compact Ejector provides fast, cautious, precise placement.

Press Release Summary:

Intended for pick and place robotics applications, vacuum generator uses suction cups for dynamic handling tasks. Blow-off flow is supplied via compressed air line as well as from ambient air, and blow-off boost enables precise and cautious deposit of workpieces in milliseconds. Rate of vacuum build up and dissipation accelerate gripping and placing, and each suction cup can be supplied with its own ejector. Solenoid valve withstands 100+ million switching operations.

FIPA Presents: Compact Ejector with Blow-Off Boost

A highly dynamic vacuum generator for ultra-fast pick & place in robotics

CARY, North Carolina – Ultra-fast cycle times, compact design: The new ejector from FIPA is a vacuum generator that uses suction cups for highly dynamic handling tasks. Its blow-off flow is supplied not only via the compressed air line, but also from ambient air, lowering the consumption of compressed air.

"The patented blow-off boost of our newest ejector makes precisely depositing work pieces in milliseconds economically feasible," says Rainer Mehrer, President and Owner of FIPA. Common fields of application include Delta robots in the packaging industry, electronics production or micro assembly.

The new ejector with blow-off boost at a glance:

> Fast Blow-off: Work pieces are placed precisely and cautiously.

> High Process Dynamics: Lightweight and very fast vacuum build up and dissipation allow quick gripping and placing.

> Compact Design: Each suction cup can be supplied with its own ejector, even in large gripper systems.

> Robust & Durable: Solenoid valve withstands over 100 million switching operations

> Extremely Short Cycle Time: Ideal for robotic applications, such as Delta robots.

> High Precision: Grippers with one ejector per suction cup prevent lateral work piece swinging due to different blow-off speeds.
