One of the first Sepro robots ever built outside of France will be a highlight of Sepro America’s display at NPE 2018. This 5-axis 7X-45 robot adds the precision of a 2-axis Stäubli CNC wrist to the flexibility of a large, 3-axis Sepro Cartesian beam robot. It is ideal for handling technically demanding parts at high production speeds on plastics injection-molding machines of up to 1300 tons.
For the fifth consecutive year, Sepro Group (La Roche sur Yon, France), a major global producer of robots for plastic injection molding machines, has set new records for robot sales. In 2017, Sepro equipped more than 3,200 injection-molding machines with robots, a 20% increase that boosted year-over-year turnover by 21% to a record €126.2 million.
