The TOOLBOX software enables you to calculate loads and cycle times for individual linear and rotary modules in the system. All the parameters that occur during operation are factored in accordingly to give you maximum planning security. The refined tools now allow you to calculate all the available new products for your modular system. Date: August 3, 2009
The KOMBIBOX software tool quickly and easily determines which modules, adapter plates, and centering parts for the system can be combined with one another to create complete handling systems without mechanical machining. The Excel-based software can now also be used with Excel 2007, includes an extension for the SCHUNK pillar assembly system in addition to a range of newly integrated features (incl. ELS, GAP and PWG-plus). As such, the tool offers a comprehensive overview of the combination options available within SCHUNK's range. Once you have chosen the right combination for you, the software works out what assembly accessories you will need, including all the necessary standard parts. It also calculates the positional coordinates for the combined modules. Note: At least 35 MB of free memory is required to open the Excel files. Loading time: up to 60 seconds, depending on the features of your computer. There are no waiting times during the actual use of the software. Since the files contain macros, you may need to deactivate your virus protection for Excel files. In addition to this, all ActiveX control elements must be fully activated. If in doubt, contact your system administrator. Date: April 2012
