Sepro Group Produces Robots for Milacron Machines

With this agreement for strategic cooperation, Milacron is expanding its supplier portfolio in the area of linear robots (© Milacron)

Milacron Holdings Corp. and Sepro Group, La Roche-sur-Yon, France, have reached an agreement that calls for Sepro to manufacture 3 and 5-axis robots to be sold with Milacron injection molding machines throughout Europe. The agreement is similar to the one reached in 2010 with Milacron in North America, which has seen Sepro robots successfully sold under the Milacron brand in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The robots are immediately available and, in fact, more than fifteen robots have already been sold under the agreement to customers in Germany, Portugal and elsewhere. All robots are marketed under the Milacron brand name to equip its full range of injection molding machines. Milacron is handling aftermarket service with support from Sepro, particularly during the early stages to the relationship. The robot control will be fully integrated into the Milacron machine controls. The Sepro Visual control platform is the standard control for the Milacron robots. It was developed by Sepro specifically for the injection molding industry. With a common control for all robots – including 3- and 5-axis – Cartesian beam robots operation is simplified and even inexperienced users can learn to create a pick-and-place program in matter of minutes.

Jean-Michel Renaudeau, CEO of Sepro Group, sees these kinds of alliances as critical to the implementation of Industry 4.0, also known as the factory of the future. “Integration and collaboration are essential in making the industry more efficient and productive,” he suggests, “and our partnership with Milacron in Europe is key and another step into that direction.

With this agreement for strategic cooperation, Milacron is expanding its supplier portfolio in the area of linear robots. The new offer includes complete automation systems for all of Europe and beyond. Milacron will act as single source while combining all platform suppliers to provide turnkey solutions in combination with their injection molding machines, hot runner technology and process control systems.
