All under control: Robotic systems from TRAPO

The handling of objects is the central task of robot systems. The robot grippers employed are adapted precisely to the objects’ characteristics — and developed and tested in the TRAPO technical centre.

The key to the success of robot use in the production process is the individual gripper technology: It influences and increases the performance of a fully automatic palletizing solution; adapted to the industry, product and package. TRAPO AG offers maximum flexibility when it intelligently automates intralogistic tasks — in the perfect interplay of conveyor systems, robots, tailor-made gripper technology as well as palletizing and depalletizing systems.

Robot applications and systems sustainably optimize palletizing and depalletizing processes. They are fully automatically adapted to the production conditions in the mechanical and control engineering area.

Individual robot-gripper combinations pick up small load carriers (SLC), sacks, cans, buckets, trays, cartons, barrels and much more from different positions individually, in rows or in layers.


Our robot grippers fit perfectly into your work processes:

  • quickly
  • space-saving
  • precise
  • unrivalled reliability
  • one application takes on numerous tasks

Adaptable robot grippers optimize processes

In addition to the selection of a suitable robot system, the use of the optimum gripper — including multi-functional grippers — has a decisive effect on sustainably increasing and securing performance and quality in the process sequence. One example is combination grippers, which combine the functions of several grippers; the time-consuming and costly changing of grippers is no longer necessary.

Their decisive characteristic proves its worth especially when several tasks have to be performed or the solution is adapted to limited spatial conditions. Grippers are able to adapt to different products, they convey, palletize, depalletize and pack pallets, workpiece carriers, intermediate layers or lids.


Precise, highly flexible high-performance Pick&Place systems with individual robot gripper technology complement the overall line competence of TRAPO AG

Pick&Place systems in multifunctional use: picking, transferring, sorting or packing.

Powerful robots: High-performance portal systems (HPS series)

Powerful portal robots from TRAPO AG operate on two or three linear axes in a cubic space. We design and manufacture the portal robots in our in-house production in Gescher-Hochmoor.

We are also specialists with portal robots made of stainless steel, for special applications in areas with special requirements for hygiene and corrosion resistance.

HPS series:

  • HPS 100 moves workpieces up to 100kg
  • HPS 250 moves workpieces up to 250kg
  • HPS 500 moves workpieces up to 500kg

 

OUR KNOWLEDGE — YOUR ADVANTAGE:

  • Modular design
  • Suitable for different packages and load carriers
  • Gentle product handling
  • On request: Suitable for cleanrooms
  • Higher weights can be realized as a special construction on request.
  • Portals are flexible in length, height and width

Jointed-arm robots: High-performance robot systems (HRS series)

Flexible 4- or 6-axis jointed-arm robots: The high-performance systems palletize, sort, equip, load and commission individual items, rows, partial layers or complete layers quickly and with high precision.

The decisive plus in flexibility is provided by jointed-arm robots mounted on rails, which can move to different palletizing stations on demand.

 

UNSER WISSEN — IHR VORTEIL:

  • Low space requirement
  • On request: suitable for clean-rooms
  • Flexible use for different applications
  • Modular design: highest adaptability to product characteristics
  • Product and industry independent: Mature robot gripper technologies transport a wide variety goods
  • Suitable for different packages and load carriers
  • Gentle product handling
  • Freely-selectable layer patterns
  • Application-oriented, flexible combination of the optimally complementary technical features of high-performance palletizer and robot

The perfect interaction: robot and gripper

A customized gripper technology is the prerequisite for the function and performance of any robot system. The use of the optimum gripper is decisive when it comes to sustainably increasing and securing performance and quality.

The time- and costly change of the grippers is dispensed with:

Combination grippers unite the performances of the vacuum gripper with those of the mechanical gripper. Decisive when several tasks need to be performed or limited space is available. They adapt to different products and in addition grip pallets, workpiece carriers, intermediate layers or lids.

Magnetic grippers for ferro-magnetic materials receive their holding strength through permanent- or electromagnets. In operation, e.g. during fully-automatic sawing with adjacent picking area, in the handling of perforated plates, but also for gripping steel frames, workpiece carriers or other components made of ferro-magnetic steel. Magnetic grippers are wear-resistant and just need a suitable surface on the product in order to be able to grip it.
