Sepro’s Eves Describes UK Robot Market as “Buoyant,” as Company Prepares for Interplas
Press releaseSep 15, 2021
After a highly successful first half in in the United Kingdom, Sepro Group (La Roche sur Yon, France) is bringing a total of seven of its newest and most advanced robots for plastics-injection molding applications to Interplas 2021, being held September 28-30 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK.
The UK market is buoyant at the moment. So far, our sales numbers are above target, with gains over the first half of 2020, especially in medical, household goods, automotive and among trade moulders. We have sold a number of larger automation systems too, and that has added strength to our turnover for the year.”
General Manager, Sepro UK
The majority of the best-selling robots in the UK market can be seen on our stand [D20 in Hall 4] and operating on the machines of our IMM-manufacturer partners, including a Success 11X, Sepro’s recently introduced five-axis version of its redesigned Success Line.
In addition, Sepro is featuring a three-axis Success 22 – sized for IMMs from 150 to 400 tons -- as well as a 6X-70L. Aimed at IMMs from 20 – 200 tons, this is the smallest in a line of six-axis articulated-arm robots developed jointly with Yaskawa Motoman. The ‘L’ designation indicates it is equipped with an extended-reach arm.
The Success 22 is equipped with end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) that displays a wide variety of gripper components, and the 6X-70L is manipulating Audi hubcap-logo medallions.
Elsewhere in Hall 4, Bole Machinery (Stand G70) is operating a Sepro five-axis Cartesian 5X-35 robot with telescoping arm, as well as a Success 22. Billion (Hall 4, Stand C4) has a three-axis S5-25 installed on one of its molding machines. And Tederic (Hall 4 Stand C78) is demonstrating a 3-axis Success 11.
