Flat, precise, power density: the universally deployable, mechatronic rotary unit SCHUNK ERT enables uniform, flexible and dynamic rotary movements that are virtually wear and maintenance-free within compact spaces. Even with the optionally available brake, which is actuated directly via the controller, the height of the SCHUNK ERT remains unchanged. This is a novelty on the market and creates excellent prerequisites for the most compact assembly and handling applications in the field of electronics, medical technology, laboratory technology, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and solar industry, but also for space-optimized applications in the field of mechanical engineering, laser machining or for packaging processes.
