At Sepro Group, innovation is about breaking down established boundaries and building new bridges that allow people, machines and companies to perform to their highest potential. That is how we intend to connect our customers to the future of robotics.
Sepro already has the largest and most diverse portfolio of 3-, 5- and 6-axis robots of any supplier in the industry and we anticipate continued growth fueled by constant innovation in automation and control, and a growing number of partnerships with injection-molding machine manufacturers and technology partners.
A key element is the Sepro Visual control platform, which was developed by Sepro especially for injection molding, with intuitive and interactive modules to help the operator. Not only is it easy to use, even for complex applications involving 5- and 6-axis robots, it also has connectivity built in.
Sepro gives molders different control-integration options compatible with various brands of injection-molding machines. Whether robots are sourced separately or as part of a complete machine package with OEM partners, Sepro can give customers more options through a concept Sepro calls ‘Agile Integration.’
Today, Sepro is collaborating with the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the U.S.A., to develop the next generation of robot and injection-molding machine controls.
Scheduled to be introduced in stages over the next few years, the new controls will feature elements like ‘agile’ ergonomics, similar to tablets, the ability to ‘learn by doing,’ 3D simulation to make programming easier, extensive customization, and ‘apps’ to facilitate routine functions. One such app will make it much easier for molders to optimize the robot cycle for maximum efficiency and productivity, while the other will simplify robot troubleshooting and help connect users to Sepro’s technical service team when assistance is needed.
