Schunk EGP 50

£915.60

Similar to the Schunk EGP 40 gripper, this 2-finger parallel gripper also uses roller bearings to guide its base jaws. The main difference between the Schunk EGP 40 and the EGP 50 is in the total payload of the collected workpiece.

Potential use cases: assembly, testing, laboratory work and the pharmaceutical industry.

Active8 Robots 4 cup suction gripper

£1,750.00

The Active8 Robots 4 cup suction gripper, like the 2 cup suction gripper, allows Eva to accurately pick up objects such as sheet metal off a flat surface without risking damage to the finish. The larger surface area of this gripper allows it to pick up items that are bigger and wider than those best suited to the 2 cup suction gripper.

Potential use cases: pick and place, machine tending, loading sheets on to a conveyor belt, packaging and sorting, and more.

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.

Spot Dispensing

Spot DispensingDemo: Spot gluing

Eva is seen here dispensing conductive epoxy on a PCB, as part of a manufacturing assembly line. The PLC informs the robot when a new board has come in, then, with a repeatability of ± 0.5 mm, Eva is able to dispense the epoxy onto the right positions.

Product Testing

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

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

The smart camera (Cognex) in this use case locates and identifies the two different types of cards and then instructs the robot to go to those points, pick up the cards, orientate them if necessary and then place them in the correct bin. The pick-up points and coordinates are not pre-programmed (as evidenced by the manual shuffling that occurs in the video) and instead Eva receives the coordinates of each card 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
