Primus 16 Robot
For Pick & Place Applications
With the Primus 16 robot, Wittmann Robot Systeme GmbH, Nuremberg, Germany, introduces the Primus robotic series that in the first instance will be used for less challenging pick & place applications. The advance towards miniaturization and the need for part separation without complex automation – these two aspects have nudged Wittmann to develop the Primus 16, the first robot to fulfill these special requirements.
The mechanical layout and the geometry of the axes of the new device are highly oriented at the high-volume model W818. However, the Primus 16, with a payload of up to 5 kg and with the Wittmann absolute encoder regulator included, is especially designed for single removals. The absolute encoder regulator features in all the smaller Wittmann robots. The constantly available position feedback – undertaken without preceding referencing – considerably simplifies and quickens the run-up of the process. The horizontal axis of the new robot has a stroke capability of 1500 or 2000 mm, a vertical axis of either 800, or 1000, or 1200 mm and a demolding axis of either 420 or 620 mm.
Like all other Wittmann servo robots, the Primus 16 is programmed using the R8 TeachBox. QuickNew is an essential feature here. It stands for simplified and graphically supported programming. The SmartRemoval and EcoMode control functions come as a standard, as well as the data input via the TextEditor function.
