Linear robot boosts payload performance

Wittmann Group's revamped W832 linear robot can now handle a payload of up to 25 kg, resulting in what the company calls a 20% increase in performance. Martin Stammhammer, sales manager robots and automation systems, noted that an optional configuration of the W832's vertical arm can actually handle up to 35 kg of payload.

The W832 is available with a maximum kick-stroke reach of 1190 mm, a vertical stroke up to 1600 mm and horizontal axes between 2000 and 5000 mm. Several options like servo-rotations, I/O-extension modules, and additional vacuum and gripper circuits allow the customization for complex automation applications.

W832 robots are suitable for injection molding machines with clamping forces from 400 to 800 tons.

Headquartered in Austria with seven production facilities and 20 branch offices, Wittmann Group is present in all major plastics markets in the world. In November 2012, the company announced that the 2000th W818 robot was officially delivered to a German customer of Wittmann Kunststoffgeräte GmbH, PP-PLASTIC. The quantity was reached after series production of only two years, reflecting the popularity of the automation line.
