Schunk SHS tool changer

£595.60

If you find yourself needing to change the end of arm tooling on your Eva frequently, and if you’re already using Schunk grippers, then the Schunk SHS tool changer is the right system for you. It allows the user to manually change the gripper in use quickly, based on the use case requirements. This tool is a size 40 if used with an Eva.

The robot-side unit (SHK) comes with an ISO mounting pattern, removing the requirement for any additional adapter plates. The tool-side unit (SHA) stays with the gripper, therefore you will need one per gripper used. The tool changer also allows you to pass through electrics, meaning you won’t need to disconnect the system entirely between tool changes.

Machine Tending

Machine TendingCase Study: Qualitetch

Machine TendingCase Study: Qualitetch

Qualitetch are a UK-based manufacturer of specialised metal components for products ranging from satellites to hairdryers. Their implementation of Eva uses a four cup vacuum gripper to safely and accurately pick up metal sheets and place them on a conveyor belt. Watch the video to hear how their story of working with Eva, and get some ideas about automating your own production line.

Product Testing

Product TestingCase Study: Nextgen

Product TestingCase Study: Nextgen

Nextgen Technology is a multinational company headquartered in the UK. They provide automated testing and fault analysis services, helping their customers validate and launch new products in industries from automotive to smartphone development.

Nextgen were drawn to Eva for its RESTful API, ease of use and affordability. Today they’re using Eva to add physical interaction to their proprietary testing platform ATAM – allowing them to simulate real end user behaviour.

Inspection

InspectionDemo: Conveyor belt and smart camera integration

InspectionDemo: Conveyor belt and smart camera integration

In this application, the conveyor belt acts as a PLC. When a product  is detected by the light gate, the conveyor belt stops, allowing one Eva to take a photo of the top of the can using a Cognex smart camera. Based on whether or not the logo on the can has been defaced, the second Eva then picks up the can and places it into the correct pass/fail lane, resuming the movement of the conveyor belt. You can read more about this use case on our blog.

Sorting

SortingDemo: Machine vision for sorting

SortingDemo: Machine vision for sorting

In this example, Eva is integrated with a smart camera (Cognex), which identifies the two different types of bottles – with and without a cap – and instructs Eva on the correct sorting bin to use. The pick-up points and coordinates of the small bottles are not pre-programmed, as evidenced by the manual shuffling that occurs towards the end of the video. Instead, Eva receives the coordinates of each bottle directly from the camera.

What's Eva Capable Of?

Installation

Eva helps small businesses level the playing field.

Its light weight and small footprint enable rapid changeovers and painless operation. It doesn’t require any special expertise to operate, nor does it need a control box or a teach pendant.

  • Enclosure: IP20
  • Base fixings: 4x M6 Screws or Bolts in a 132 x 132 mm square
  • Tool fixings: 4x M6 Screws in a 40 mm ⌀ circle.
  • Footprint: 160mm x 160 mm

Communication

Smart machines should simplify matters, not complicate them.

Eva uses the technology you’re already familiar with to talk to you and your equipment.

  • Programming: Use ethernet or wifi to connect your computer directly to Eva, or add it to your network just like a printer.
  • Integration: Eva provides 24 V Industrial Logic: digital and analog inputs and outputs, totalling 32 pins.

Programming

People make all the difference, and Eva is designed to unlock their potential.

Teach the robot by hand, then fine tune with Choreograph: software as intuitive as a smartphone app, running in your web browser.

  • No need for a special computer
  • No prior experience with robots necessary
  • Expand Eva’s capabilities with the REST API or Python SDK

Performance

Traditional industrial robots are complicated, and overqualified for light automation.

Eva excels at everyday processes, like loading machines, inspecting parts and precisely dispensing fluids.

  • Speed: 750 mm/s (joint speed of 120°/s)
  • Reach: 600 mm
  • Payload: 1.25 kg
  • Repeatability: ± 0.5 mm
