Beam robots offer longer strokes for added versatility

New configurations of the economical Axess of servo-driven beam robots from Sepro America LLC give molders up to 33 per cent greater vertical reach along with new safety and convenience features normally available only on high-end robots.

The new Axess 22 has a standard vertical stroke of 1400 mm (55 inches) with 1600 mm (64 inches) available. That’s 200 mm or 8 inches of additional stroke than previously available on this size of robot. The Axess 33 has a standard vertical stroke of 1600mm, with 1800mm (70 inches) available. Telescoping arms, which are ideal for low-ceiling applications, are also available on both the Axess 22 and 33.

Ideal for simple pick-and-place applications on smaller molding machines, the Axess Series is a line of 3-axis servo-driven Sepro robots that offer high-performance capabilities at a price below most other 3-axis servo robots. The Sepro-exclusive ‘Y-free’ function, also standard, provides for the programmed release of the strip-axis motor, allowing free movement of the robot arm and load-free ejector tracking. Wrist rotation from 0 to 180, with a programmable intermediate stop at 90, is a popular option.
