Asyril, a Switzerland-headquartered developer of flexible feeding systems for parts and components from 0.1mm up to 150mm in size, is showcasing its range of purge platforms for the company’s Asycube 240 feeder model at this year’s Robotics and Automation exhibition.

As visitors are discovering, the purge option is designed to enable users to easily switch from the production of product ‘A’ to product ‘B’.  The Asycube 240, which is suitable for feeding components from 5mm to 40mm for flat and cube-like parts, and up to 50mm for long parts such as pins and needles, now also has this option.


Customers can order a purge platform and an actuator kit in addition to the Asycube 240, enabling quick platform emptying while avoiding handling of parts.

Additionally, the purge platform eliminates the need for operator intervention during production. After the pick-and-place of all good parts, any non-recoverable parts are automatically evacuated, reducing waste and avoiding tangled parts.

Furthermore, there are different purge platforms; left opening and right opening. A metal spout to guide the parts to the receiving area is also included. An electric motor has also been integrated to allow the system to operate autonomously once connected to the Asycube.

Vibratory bowl feeders have long been the go-to device for supplying parts in automated assembly systems. Their sole drawback is that they are not all that flexible. They are custom-made to feed one specific part. That’s all well and good for low-mix, high-volume production, but for higher mix operations, the economics become harder to justify.

11.03.2020 : SVS-Vistek has collaborated with Swiss robot maker Asyril to improve the performance of assembly robots using sophisticated image processing systems, innovative ideas and industrial cameras. Stefan Waizmann, technical marketing engineer at SVS-Vistek, explains more.

At almost every automation trade fair in recent years, the attempts of various companies to realise the famous “reach into the box”, i.e. the gripping of unordered components by a robot, can be seen. Despite enormous progress in the field of robotics and image processing, this task still poses a great challenge.
The reasons for this are obvious: Before a robot can grip a component, an image processing system must first reliably recognize it, calculate its orientation, and then communicate the position and orientation of the gripping points to the robot. In conventional technology, this is still a slow, multi-stage process (recognition, gripping, correct depositing, gripping with correct orientation). If the components to be gripped are chaotically mixed up and partially concealed, the safe and fast gripping of individual parts often becomes a complex and slow process.
Asyril has taken a new approach to this task, which is frequently encountered in industry. The Swiss company builds fast, highly efficient feeding systems for ‘pick and place’ robots using a trick that is simple at first glance but very innovative in detail. The bulk material objects lying next to and on top of each other in a box are guided via a feeding hopper to a vibration platform, where they are separated and placed in a position that allows easy access by the robot.

Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. teams up with many major manufacturers to bring the best industrial equipment to Canadian businesses. One of these producers, Asyril, is renowned for its high-performance flexible feeding systems that work with parts and components measuring up to 40 millimetres (mm) in size.

With innovative technology, Asyril’s flexible feeding systems allow for very gentle feeding for all parts, regardless of the geometry.

Tokyo (SCCIJ) – Asyril SA from the French part of Switzerland, a young and innovative Swiss robot maker, has entered the Japanese market within a year of its first appearance at the robot fair iREX held in November 2017. Hence, Asyril delivers another living proof that a small Swiss company can easily succeed in Japan. The secrets of its quick market penetration can be found in a number of matching Japanese distributors and the support of the Swiss-Japanese boutique business developer Euro-Far East led by long-time SCCIJ member Robert Champoud. Most recently, Asyril participated in two other fairs in Japan. As a next step, it is considering to set up a service center for its Japan customers.
