22 Sepro Robots at Fakuma 2018 Display Performance, Choice and IMM Partnerships

 |  Subj: Press-releses

Sepro Group, one of the world’s largest makers of robots for injection-molding machines (IMMs), plans to show a total of 22 robots at Fakuma 2018, including 8 operating on its own
stand (A1–1203) and more than a dozen on the stands of injection-molding machine manufacturers. Fakuma is being held from 16 to 20 October 2018 at the Messe Friedrichshafen in Germany.

The Sepro display (Stand A1–1203) will feature three operating IMMs provided by OEM robot partners: two from Sumitomo Demag, Sepro’s oldest OEM robot partner, and one from Haitian, the most recent addition to a list that now includes nearly all of the biggest brands in molding machines. A 180-ton Sumitomo Demag machine will be equipped with a new highspeed 3-axis robot developed by Sepro for Sumitomo Demag. A Success 5 robot, the smallest Sepro makes, will be operating (also with an SDR label) on a 100-ton Sumitomo
Demag machine. Finally, a 60-ton Haitian machine will be equipped with a Sepro 5X-15. The premium 5X robot family combines the versatility of Sepro’s 3-axis Cartesian platform
with the precision of a 2-axis Stäubli wrist.

Elsewhere on the stand, three examples from Sepro’s popular Success range of 3-axis general-purpose robots — the Success 5, Success 7, and Success 11 — will be operating together with an S5 Picker, which has a 3-axis mechanical design similar to the Success robots. The Success range can equip IMMs from 20 to 700 tons, offering plastics processors economical and reliable productivity in typical pick-and-place and stacking applications

A special section of the Sepro booth at Fakuma 2018 will be dedicated to the Open 4.0 philosophy, which stands behind the company’s vision for the ‘Factory of the Future.’ Visitors can get hands-on experience with the Visual control platform. Among other things, this easy-to-use robot control, which was developed by Sepro especially for injection molding, makes it possible to integrate robot controls with those of the IMM. This kind of 22 Sepro Robots Expected at Fakuma 2018 integration supports Sepro collaboration with the growing number of OEM partners who want to offer advanced robot and automation options to the processors who purchase their molding machines. Working with these IMM partners, SEPRO has proven to be reliable when it comes to integration. From mirroring the robot control to fully embedded it in the IMM control, Sepro Visual is an open and transparent system, both to our users and to different robot technologies.

Attendees can also preview the company’s latest 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. Elsewhere on the stand, a video presentation will introduce the “Solution by Sepro” concept and visitors will be able to manipulate 3D renderings of actual automated molding cells that are typical of these projects. They often involve multiple robots and specialized end-of-arm tooling (EOAT), plus a variety of feeders (bowl, drawer or manual), inspection devices, cavity separation, degating/trimming, box filling 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.

Sepro will be well represented on the stands of leading injection-molding machine manufacturers throughout Fakuma 2018, with some fourteen 3- 5- and 6-axis Sepro robots
in operation at:
• Billion (Stand B3–3104)
• Milacron (Stand B3–3203)
• JSW (Stand A7–7207)
• Deckerform (Stand A6–6413)
• Haitian International (Stand A1–1101)
• Chen Hsong (Stand A7–7105)
• Tederic (Stand B3–3216)
• Lienfa: (Stand A7–7317)
• FCS (Stand A7–7207)
• . . . and others.
