- Sepro returns to #NPE2015 with 20 Robots
- From servo-driven sprue picker to 6-axis robots
- Entirely new line of robots will be unveiled (details not known yet)
Sepro America will bring a total of twenty robots to Orlando for #NPE2015. Ten are being demonstrated in the Sepro booth and ten more in the booths of injection-molding machine manufacturers (including Sumitomo Demag, Absolute Haitian, G. Pernoud North America, Stork and Maruka U.S.A.).
5X Line 5-axis robots
Designed for applications requiring complex part manipulation, the 5-axis 5X Line is based on the Sepro 3-axis Cartesian beam robots, featuring high-precision and high-speed. A 2-axis Stäubli servo wrist is added to provide additional compact servo rotations making it easy to adapt to challenging applications like insert placing, complex extraction paths in the mold, or path tracking for flame treatment.
6X Visual 6-axis robots
This line of robots combines a Stäubli 6-axis articulated-arm robot with easy-to-use Sepro Visual 3 control to deliver a flexible automation solution specifically for injection molding.
General-purpose servo-driven robots
The so-called Success range of robots are based on the S-Platform technology that was developed on the high-performance S5 Line, so they are faster and able to handle bigger, heavier parts. Sized for injection-molding machines from 20 to over 800 tons of clamp they can be considered as affordable robots with enhanced capabilities.
5DA dual-arm servo robots
Specifically designed for applications involving 3-plate molds, the 5DA line includes units sized for machines from 30 to 500T. They incorporate a 3-axis arm (with 0 – 90° pneumatic wrist) that allows for simple pick-and-place of molded parts, as well as a secondary 2-axis servo arm for sprue unloading.
S3 servo-driven sprue picker
The S3 sprue picker is faster than standard pneumatically driven sprue pickers. It operates at 6.5 ft/sec (2m/sec) speeds on the vertical axis. It is also more accurate and repeatable.
All these different robots are operated using the same control platform, which was developed by Sepro especially for injection-molding applications.
