Pick and Place with Kinematic

High-performance kinematic picker: innovative pick and place solution

Kinematics transcends limits and offers more possibilities for picker application. With enormous stroke and extended radius, the kinematics solution ensures consistently high process quality, machine availability and enormous cycle rates.

The high-performance parallel kinematics consists of a five-member kinematic structure, a Z-axis and a rotary module for orientation. Developed by teams from TRAPO Test Center and RWTH Aachen University.

The modular system has an optional three or four degrees of freedom. Named for the high performance of the HPPS series, the high-speed pick-and-place system is used with up to 200 parts/min and with up to five kilograms of payload.


24/7 High Performance and Absolute Precision

The 3 payload classes of the HPPS series handle wet, dry or irregularly shaped food as well as primary and secondary packaging.

Load class 1 kg
For small and very light products that can be picked up with a single
can be picked up with a single suction cup

Load class 3 kg
For cylindrical bags or cans that can be either suctioned or

Load class 6 kg
Allrounder: for products that are either sucked or gripped
(All payloads refer to gripper plus product)

High-performance parallel kinematics consists of a five-link kinematic structure, a Z-axis and a rotary module for orientation. Developed by teams from the TRAPO Technical Center.
