Attendees can also preview new control developments like OptiCycle, a control plug-in (developed in open collaboration with a key customer) that automates robot cycle optimization, and Live Support, an app that links customers and their robots with troubleshooting assistance. Both are intended to function with the Sepro Visual control platform on new and existing robots.
Visitors will also be able to find a video presentation of automated molding cells that are typical of Solution by Sepro projects. These often involve multiple robots and specialized end-of-arm tooling, plus a variety of feeders, inspection devices and other equipment, all customized to suit specific manufacturing objectives. The Solution by Sepro program provides injection molders with equipment, engineering expertise and additional services needed to bring new levels of efficiency and quality to their process.
Healy noted that the Warrendale plant will concentrate on building three of Sepro’s largest robot lines: 3-axis Strong universal robots, technological 3-axis S7 line robots and premium 5-axis 7X line robots. The new robot production in Warrendale increases the company’s global robot assembly capacity, complementing assembly capacity in France, and will optimize large-robot deliveries in North America, Sepro’s fastest growing global market.
