Quickly deployable tabletop robots
Tabletop robots from IAI are often used as laboratory robots. They are precise positioning and assembly platforms with working ranges from 200 x 200 mm to 500 x 500 mm. The ability to use them as a stand alone production island is particularly appreciated by customers.
- Soldering, pressing and pick & place tasks
- Sorting applications
- Microdosing in biotechnology
- Assembly of printed circuit boards in the electronics industry
- Surface coating
- Quality assurance
With a stroke of up to 150 mm, the Z-axis can also accommodate camera systems for image processing and move a total load of up to 15 kg.
Gate or cantilever type
The gate type is suitable for applications in which high rigidity is required. The cantilever type is frequently used where space is limited.
The gantry type has a fixed Y-axis for handling payloads with uneven weight distribution. It is particularly suitable for applications where the X-axis has to carry a heavy load or where a large part of the load capacity extends beyond the slider.
The cantilever type allows a higher flexibility when, for example, payloads with larger dimensions or irregular shapes need to be handled.
Programming & storage capacity
With the TTA table robots, up to 255 programmes can be stored, 16 of which can run simultaneously. Up to 30,000 positions can be defined and up to 9999 programme steps are possible.
The autonomous table robots can be programmed directly on the unit without a PLC or with a "teaching pendant".
This manual effort is not necessary, however, because programme creation works conveniently via a PC with the SEL programme generator. Either DXF data can be read in or the travel path can be drawn with the PC mouse. The programme is then generated automatically.
Interfaces & field networks
Up to 48 I/Os are available for external communication.
The following field networks are supported: CC-Link, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS-DP, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT.
Standard equipment: battery-free absolute encoder
All TTA tabletop robots are equipped with a high-resolution battery-free absolute encoder as standard.
The advantages of these encoders lie in the shortened downtimes, because no reference point has to be approached during commissioning after an emergency shutdown or faulty operation.
In addition, there is also no need for maintenance and replacement of the back-up battery, which is used for position storage.
