HYBRID TRANSFER SYSTEM
FOR MORE OUTPUT AND FLEXIBILITY

Whether it's the cam drive, direct drive, freely programmable redirection, or belt system, the LS-HYBRID transfer system is based on a modular design principle and allows you to adapt the system even more precisely to your application needs than it was possible before. This lets you implement the right module with the appropriate drive technology for maximum precision or dynamics to fit the process step. The LS-HYBRID can be expanded and modified however you want at any time.

PLUG & PLAY

PLUG & PLAY DELIVERY WITH GUARANTEE

The LS-HYBRID is the only subsystem on the market with a Plug & Play design. You receive a completely hardwired transport system with process-capable frames that you only need to plug in. The costs of construction, installation, and commissioning are reduced to a minimum thanks to this Plug & Play system solution. Before delivery, the system goes through a comprehensive functionality and quality inspection and can be set up and put into operation on-site quickly and smoothly. Upon request, customer processing times can be simulated before delivery to confirm the performance values of the entire system.

  • Commissioning and acceptance at the factory

Benefits

  • Guaranteed performance values
  • Significantly reduced delivery times

E-CAM MODULE

ONE DESIGN WITH MANY BENEFITSThe newly developed e-cam combines the classic cylinder cam with a servomotor. The movement pattern of the workpiece carrier is no longer determined just by the cam track, it is also given by the overlapping movement profiles of the cam and servomotor.

LS Hybrid

Maximum precision With the help of the cylinder cam, workpiece carriers can be gripped, transported and mechanically locked without clearance in a single movement process – without any additional locking unit. The direct transfer of the cam movement to the workpiece carrier results in considerably faster travel compared to standard conveyors. Precise alignment between the cam, tread and carriage ensures short transport times and maximum precision in all directions when positioning at the process station.

LS Hybrid

20% MORE OUTPUT The motor is continuously held in the optimal operating position by the movement profile overlap of the cylinder cam and servomotor. This results in both significantly shorter workpiece change times, as well as higher production output of up to 60 parts per minute, depending on process time, stroke and loading. The movement profile is optimized to reduce jerk, also ensuring extremely gentle transportation of the workpiece carriers without any jolts. Using a special software tool, the e-cam module can be configured to optimize cycle times to fit the application. This helps you find the most cost-effective solution.

LS Hybrid

REDUCED PRODUCTION SPACE The e-cam principle allows you to seamlessly sequence any number of cam elements with the same stroke. The use of input and output conveyors between the process stations is omitted, which reduces the length of the system by up to 120 centimeters per double cam compared to the predecessor LS 280.

LINEAR MOTOR MODULE

ABILITY TO FREELY POSITION EACH WORKPIECE CARRIER

Each workpiece carrier can be programmed independently and freely: position, acceleration, speed and movement direction. No specific pattern is needed.

100% SYNCHRONOUS WITH EXTERNAL AXES

The movement sequences are synchronized using the linear motor module. This means that handling can begin even while the transfer system is still moving. Certain processes are even possible at full speed, e.g. components can be transferred without stopping the machine.



INTEGRATED X AXIS OPERATION

The linear motor module can replace a second process axis in certain machining processes, such as the application of an adhesive bead. The workpiece carrier can be configured in such a way that it moves forwards and backwards – in synchronization with the handling components – in order to take over this task.

REDIRECTION MODULE

The LS-HYBRID has a freely programmable redirection module based on a proven rotary indexer from WEISS. As a result, the workpiece carrier can be positioned in the curve as well, opening up free space for processes with lower accuracy requirements, such as loading and unloading carriages.

MODULE SUPPORT

The drive unit, including transport and guide systems, sits on its own module support. It can be separated from the base frame, allowing you to benefit from greater flexibility in designing your system. The robust and low-wear design enables loading up to 10 kg and high process forces. Both horizontal as well as vertical setups are possible. Wear parts such as guide rails feature a modular design and can be switched out separately.
