Flexible Holding System for Collaborative Robots

Collaborative robot technology continues to grow. Compared to industrial robots, collaborative robots have hardly any mounting options for attachments. What to do then if routing to the tool is needed?

The Flexible Holder System FHS from Murrplastik Systems is the solution!

It can be used on many robots and can be used with or without additional components. With the FHS, cables or protective hoses for dynamic energy supply can be directly and safely attached to robots.
This modular holder system is unique on the market. It provides a secure hold, is variable and fits on straight or conical surfaces, on corner edges and on different surfaces, profiles and diameters.

Maximum flexibility: Two basic bodies – three applications
The multi-tasking talent FHS consists of two different basic bodies, which allow three different types of attachment, and a hook and loop strip in different lengths. This guarantees a flexible, safe and easy-to-install energy supply.

FHS-SH: The FHS with system holder for guiding and stabilizing small power supplies and for low to medium traversing speeds, as well as for sliding or fixed mounting on the cable protection conduit. Particularly recommended is FHS-SH for the energy supply for the original equipment or for a subsequent installation.

FHS-UHE: The FHS with one-piece universal holder enables safe, and also subsequent cable protection assembly or disassembly. With the one-piece, captive clip, the replacement of protective tubes is done with a click and in seconds. The FHS-UHE is particularly suitable for avoiding axial displacements of the protective hose within dynamic and light applications.

FHS-C: cables and protective tubes are fastened directly, safely and in line to the robot arm. Since Murrplastik has different velcro tape lengths for different types of robots, the system continuously adapts to different diameter robotic arms as well as cables, cables and protective tubes.

Laser Marking Systems Are Ideal for High-Volume Projects

Manufacturers in many industries recognize the importance of identification and traceability for their components. Thanks to abrasion-proof laser technology, adding labels to plastic and metal plates in medium- to high-volume projects doesn’t have to be complex and expensive.

Laser marking systems such as Murrplastik’s mp-LM Series make inscriptions for the company’s polycarbonate and polypropylene ID plates as well as anodized aluminum and stainless steel media. Using mirrors, the devices direct a laser beam onto material. The laser’s heat causes carbon emission which darkens the material to create a visual contrast and a long-lasting mark.

Why use laser marking for your inscription needs?

  • Contactless Marking. Since laser marking systems use direct energy from a laser to create the mark, they are non-abrasive. Ink cannot rub off or fade with time, and the resulting surface remains smooth.
  • Economical. Laser marking doesn’t require consumables, so users save on ink and chemical system maintenance and supplies. Combined with low initial costs, laser marking systems offer excellent value.
  • Flexibility and adaptability. Laser labelling systems accommodate a wide range of applications including cables, leads, terminals, control panels and signalling equipment, switchgear and media devices. They are able to label a variety of base materials, and systems can be controlled via software when connected to a PC with a USB port or Ethernet.

High-Quality Laser Labelling Systems Offer Exceptional Value
The mp-LM Series enables high-quality, project-specific inscription of most Murrplastik plastic labels with all the benefits of contactless laser marking, especially flexibility, adaptability and cost savings. Users can insert different label types simultaneously: Polycarbonate and polypropylene materials stack directly inside the input shaft, and a carrier plate loads aluminum and stainless steel labels into a magazine for processing. If the job requires more than one label type, a separator plate makes sure that the correct number is generated for maximum adaptability and flexibility. And, users can control and operate the system using Murrplastik’s proven ACS software. The family is classified by three different solid-state laser outputs: 1.5W (mp-LM1), 3W (mp-LM3) and 10W (mp-LM10), and an extraction and filter unit (mp-LM-F) is also available.

Contactless laser marking presents many benefits to manufacturers looking to inscribe labels for their individual projects. In addition to their flexibility, laser labelling systems like the mp-LM family are easy to operate and maintain – without expensive consumables. As a result, manufacturers can create higher-quality labels thanks to laser marking systems that provide an exceptional return on investment.
