Sepro Group will introduce two of their biggest robots at the K 2016 trade fair.
The two big new robots — the 7X-100XL, a 5-axis Cartesian beam robot, and the 6X-400, a 6-axis articulated-arm robot — will dominate the Sepro exhibit. The horizontal beam on the 7X-100XL is a staggering 5m in length. The telescopic vertical stroke is 3.2m and the maximum payload is 100 kg.
The 6X-400 6-axis articulated-arm robot, the product of a recent manufacturing partnership with Yaskawa Motoman, has a 4m reach and can carry a maximum 120-kg payload.
They are thought to be the largest robots at the show this year.
… and Small Robots
Sepro is also introducing new small robots, including The S5 Picker servo-driven sprue picker. Based on the same basic mechanical design as the Sepro Success range of economical, general-purpose robots, the S5 Picker has same 3-axis linear design with servo drive on all axes.
It comes standard with a simple sprue gripper but it can be supplied optionally with an R1 wrist rotation and can be fitted with simple end-of-arm tooling. The fast-cycling picker operates entirely inside the IMM footprint and includes an unloading chute and guarding..
