What are Pick and Place Robots?

Pick and place automation speeds up the process of picking up parts or items and placing them in other locations. Pick and place robots are commonly used in modern manufacturing environments. Pick and place robots handle repetitive tasks while freeing up human workers to focus on more complex work. Automating this process helps to increase production rates.

Featured in this video, multiple bottles are picked from a Dorner Conveyor using a Schunk gripper, and then placed into cardboard boxes below. As an industrial robot, the GP25 operates in an enclosed safety area. The GP Series is designed for fast-paced assembly, packaging, and general handling processes. The Yaskawa Motoman GP25 is perfect for pick & place applications with payloads less than 25 kg (55 lbs).

Neff Power's selection of Six-axis GP-series robots deliver optimal speed, accuracy and range of movement. The superior speed of this robot family is only matched by its nimble performance and simple, streamlined design. Most GP-series robots offer an IP67-rated wrist and IP54 body standard, with select models offering an XP (eXtra Protection) package that increases body protection ratings to IP65.

Benefits of Pick and Place Robots:

Faster Cycle Times

  • Improved acceleration / deceleration control for all robot positions allows faster cycle times.
  • Increased axis speeds over previous generation.

Better Space Utilization

  • Small footprint, slim-arm design widens work area, reducing overall space requirements.
  • Hollow arm structure eliminates cable interference.

Less Downtime

  • Highest wrist allowable moment provides reliable payload handling.
  • Easy washdown cleaning in harsh or sanitary environments.
  • Single-cable connection for fast setup and simple maintenance.
