Fast pallet change – now of up to 1,000 kg

The powerhouse: The SCHUNK robot coupling VERO-S NSR maxi 220 is designed for handling of heavy pallets up to 1,000 kg.

The powerhouse: The SCHUNK robot coupling VERO-S NSR maxi 220 is designed for handling of heavy pallets up to 1,000 kg.

It transfers torques up to 4,000 Nm, and can reliably handle up to 1,000 kg (at 800 x 800 mm). Due to the developed locking system with patented strokes (fast and clamping stroke) from SCHUNK, such large masses can be handled. Locking is done form-fit, and is self-retaining. All the components of the powerhouse are made of hardened, stainless steel. In order to ensure a process-reliable function in challenging environments, it is completely sealed against chips and coolant. Moreover, a standardized cleaning function ensures a chip-free surface contact between pallet and robot coupling. For process monitoring, locking and unlocking conditions are monitored via a position sensor, and the presence of pallet via an inductive proximity switch. Repeat accuracy amounts to 0.02 mm.

 

 

Upgrade of the modules up to 350 kg

With the permissible pallet weights from 1 to 1,000 kg the SCHUNK VERO-S NSR robot couplings cover an enormous spec-trum. For ensuring a process-reliable pallet change, every mod-ule is equipped with an automatic cleaning function now.

The innovative family-owned company also completes the VERO-S NSR sizes with smaller and medium-sized sizes: in order to achieve maximum process stability, these standard modules are also equipped with a cleaning function now. Steel inlays at the contact areas make the robot couplings extremely wear-resistant. Despite the upgrade, the module weight remains unchanged. Due to the consequent lightweight design, the modules with optimized interfering contours weigh 400 g (NSR mini 100), 1,600 g (NSR 160). They are suitable for reliable handling of pallets up to 75 kg (at 200 x 200 mm), or up to 350 kg (at 400 x 400 mm). Together in a team with the new heavy-duty module NSR maxi 220, they are covering the complete range from 1 to 1,000 kg.
