LOGO!MAT XL Twin Strand - Series: Pallet Locate Unit


xl-twin-strand

The LOGO!MAT XL Pallet Locate Unit provides a three times greater positioning accuracy than the LOGO!MAT XL cushioned Stop Unit alone.

The LOGO!MAT XL Pallet Locate Unit, which is also used in the XL Twin Strand Conveyor Systems, was specifically developed for semi-automatic or automatic workstations where robots perform tasks on the work piece and the pallet has to be positioned exactly. This cost effective component consists of a pneumatic, heavy duty cushioned stop unit and a pneumatically driven index pin that engages into one of the rear index bushings on the bottom side of the pallet. Using this setup, the pallet is positioned accurately in x- and y-direction within ± 0,5 mm.

Since the index bushings are directly mounted to the tooling plate, the plate gets positioned without any additional play. The locate pin is spring loaded in the up position. It is designed to be double acting to get more indexing pressure for the heavy XL Pallets. The index pin does have a steep cone to create high side forces to align the pallet. Two inductive sensors (M8) can be used to detect the position of the index pin. Those sensors are not included in the standard package, but are available upon request; the sensor brackets are included in any case.

The XL Stop Unit and the index pin are installed on a separate mounting plate. Therefore the distance between the stop unit and the index pin can be adjusted for every individual configuration and operation.

The entire unit can be moved to another position even after the commissioning of the transfer system. Every LOGO!MAT XL Stop Unit can be adapted with a LOGO!MAT XL Locate Unit if the repeated accuracy of the pallet is required in the future.

The LOGO!MAT Pallet Locate Unit is a very reasonable component to ensure proper pallet positioning, even for heavy pallets.
