PATO can load all kind of horizontal lines where the panels are stored in horizontal position and contact is permitted.
By means of rows of adjustable suction cups the gripper picks up a panel from the stack and displaces it over to the horizontal conveyor minimizing the friction between panels. The Pato Loader can be used for individual PCBs in final cleaning lines and different panel sizes by modifying the distribution of the suction cups on the gripper.
Its great storage capacity, over 300mm stack, is ideal for long operation without the need of human intervention. The Loader is equipped with a PLC and a touch screen with an easy operator interface.
