Application: Automatic feeding and screwdriving system for incorporation into an assembly platform where bit stroke is the only actuation required.
Built to deliver robust fastening under the most extreme conditions, the VPM Power Module is the machine builder’s screwdriving spindle of choice for robotic integration. It can be configured to install fasteners in any plane, including vertically up!
VPM Power Module systems can be integrated with:
- Six-axis robots
- Cartesian X-Y-Z robots
- Weldment mounting with part presentation
The VPM screwdriving system is the right fit when you need the fastener bit-stroked into the part. It is dependent on other machine components for motion to present the tooling tip for bit stroke.
The Visumatic Advant-edge
- Screw feed during robot move for fast cycle times.
- Delivered ready to plug and work.
Engineered for rapid deployment, the VPM includes a one-and-done electrical connection for the built-in slide position and fastener transfer sensors. Visumatic can integrate any brand screwdriver into the spindle. If it fits the application, we have a system engineered to fit your motor.
Paired with our reliable Model 94 feeder, the VPM screwdriving system is the machine builder’s most popular EOAT for six-axis robot integration.
Out of the box capability for repeatable process control.
