The new standard in assembly automation

The 24 V mechatronic program from SCHUNK.

For the first time ever it is possible to implement complete assembly systems made of linear axes, rotary modules, and grippers, which are consistently based on 24-V.

Plug & Work!

Mechatronic SCHUNK grippers, rotary and linear modules from the modular system can be easily combined, integrated and smoothly started.

Easy to Start Up!

Easy commissioning of the mechatronic modules. Easier and more intuitive than in  pneumatics.

Easy to Integrate!

Versatile and energy-efficient integration into the system. Continuous supply concept with standardized plugs and control with digital I/O. By using marketable, standardized cables, the systems can be easily implemented, having a compact design.

Easy to Use!

Low-wear and maintenance-free modules for a smooth operation of handling and assembly systems without machine downtime. A fast reaction on changing processes is ensured: from simple adjustment possibilities up to automatic adaption of the modules.

Application example: Pick & Place production cell

Compact and fast implementation.

Product benefits

  1. Electric ELP linear module
    The revolutionary auto-learn function allows an automatic adjustment of the optimum speed. The module is practically maintenance-free since no wear parts are needed (no shock absorbers and no seals).
  2. Electric EGS gripper/swivel unit
    No end position shock absorbers. Therefore the unit is low-maintenance and easy to commission. Multistage, easy adjustment of swivel speed and gripping force with manual rotary switches possible, allowing a high degree of flexibility.

  3. Electric EGP gripper for small components
    No wear parts at the same performance as a pneumatic gripper. The speed-version is the
    perfect solution for high-speed assembly.

    SCHUNK SAS pillar assembly system
    Modules can be perfectly combined with each other: more than 10,000 combination possibilities are available. High degree of flexibility due to the possibility of direct attachment of adjustment unit and media feeding.

System advantages

  • Time saving due to fast and easy commissioning of the modules, and compact design of the whole system from the modular system.
  • Highest machine availability and highest rates of part production due to the use of maintenance-free components.
  • Purely electric power supply, practically no consumable parts, and therefore the operating costs can be saved and are considerably lower.
  • Compact systems since no supply lines are required in comparison to pneumatics and the use of logistics and performance distributors.
  • Perfectly fitting modules having a consistent control concept for faster and easy integration into the whole system and higher-level control.
  • Process-reliable, low-vibration and low-noise, and at the same time higher cycle times are achieved, which increase the throughput and service life of the whole system. A consistent 24 volt supply concept for higher safety requirements.

Quick selection

The electric gripper for small components with high compact performance used in assembly automation. 180% better griping force/mass ratio.
The world’s most compact electric rotary gripping module.
The easiest electric linear module on the market to adjust
100% variable. Components and modules can be combined in any desired way and are exactly fitting.
SCHUNK distributors are multipurpose and insensitive to vibrations, dust and humidity.

Combining variably and easily!

The pillar‘s assembly and accessory parts allow almost every efficient combination without construction effort.
