npe26.jpgWhat's Hot? Direct Line will have a new line of 'in stock' and 'install-it-yourself' pneumatic traversing robots and sprue pickers. A comprehensive, easy-to-follow manual explains everything you need to know, including how to determine what size robot you need, how to install it and how to program it. Direct-Line says most molders will find they have more than enough expertise to install these robots themselves, and since the cost of robotic installation often runs to between 10 and 20% of the robot cost, doing it yourself can often provide significant cost saving benefits.

* Also new is a robotic indexing conveyor interface, an option that interfaces with a conveyor and is used with robotic parts placement to index the conveyor upon receiving a signal from a robot.

* A new line of off-the-shelf box-filling units is said to be easy to adapt to a variety of different box sizes. Systems have photo eye controls, adjustable side rails, an empty box alarm and a gravity roller conveyor for storage of filled boxes. The unit will accommodate box sizes from 9 x 9 in. to 24 x 30 in. (said to be approximately 90% of all box sizes encountered in automated filling systems).

All of the company's conveyors will be displayed with newly designed, easy-to-adjust leg sets. The new leg features a two-piece assembly with one section telescoping inside the other. The legs are secured into the desired position by a simple, self-locking pin. The new cross brace design also telescopes, allowing it to be easily adjusted to different positions.

Existing Products On Display will include a three-piece ring valve; standard flat belt, cleated belt and adjustable-angle conveyors with a variety of standard, options; drawer magnets and water manifolds. Circle 245
