Robot line customized for molding

NP-CVR_Staubli.jpgThe RXplastics line of six-axis robots features three models (RX60, RX90, RX130) with load capacities up to 25 kg and a maximum reach at the wrist of 2185 mm. Coordination of robot movements with the molding cycle is aided by Euromap 12-compliant software. Since the RX line is prewired to Euromap 12 standards, the robots are ready as shipped for direct connection to molding machines and safety door systems.

A series of frequently used movements and scenarios comes loaded in the control software. Customizing is done with macros and modules that modify these preset movements to meet more specific parameters. The system?s control employs a graphical user interface that features common molding lingo to aid operator use. The RX line can be used in Class 100 cleanroom environments. High-speed, precision control allows the robots to follow complex trajectories at joint-speed ranges of up to 1125°/sec. The gearbox maneuvering the robot has zero backlash for smooth movements and consistent operation. Insert loading, demolding, inmold decorating, glue laying, powder coating, painting, assembly, inspection, and packaging are among the potential applications.
