With a payload of 3 kg (6.6 lbs.), the new W701 robot from Wittmann is designed for use with smaller tonnage molding machines ranging from 25 to 120 tons clamping force.

Besides the small cross-section of the vertical arm, the highly integrated construction of the wrist flip is suited to utilize the small mold opening stroke common to small machine sizes.

Similar to Wittmann’s high-performance W711 servo robots, the new W701 is equipped with a fixed kick-stroke reaching over the mold area in order to avoid collisions with machine hoppers and blenders on machines with short injection units. The linear bearings are designed for extended lubrication intervals and high dynamic load.

The W701 robots are available with a horizontal stroke of 1250 and 1500 mm (49.2″ and 59.1″). The robot offers vertical stroke lengths of 600 and 800 mm (23.6″ and 31.5″), a kick-stroke of 400 mm (15.7″) with a reach of 515 mm (20.3″).

Also, multiple additional features of the standard series are available, including additional vacuum and gripper circuits, as well as miscellaneous input/output modules for the control of complex peripheral equipment.

The R7 TouchScreen control is standard and offers unlimited programming fine-tuned to the level of knowledge of the operator and several diagnostic screens. The built-in internal flash memory can hold a very large number of Teach Programs while a USB memory stick is provided for program backup and transfer.
