Rexroth’s Non-Contact Transfer (NCT) unit is a picking device that operates on the Bernoulli principle, which applies airflow under the device to create a vacuum and lift force between the center and circumference. The line is now expanded to include a high-grade polymer version.
The NCT transfer system handles materials that are porous, delicate, or have rough or soft surfaces. The PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) version expands the potential applications to areas where aluminum components are not suitable. It resists chemicals, conventional solvents, acids, salts and oil, making it suitable for the food/beverage industries. FDA- and EG-approved materials guarantee the safe use of these components, even in direct contact with food products. A low friction coefficient and high resistance to wear ensure a long service life and hygienic handling.
