New Stacking Robot Series
Improved Reliability during Thermoforming
The R&D division of Amut-Comi, Vigevano, Italy, has designed and developed a new series of stacking robots to be equipped with Amut-Comi's thermoforming machines of the ACF series.
The new stacking robots, proposed as an evolution of the classic vertical wall stacker, are available in two models:
- the ER2X consists of a vertical axe to pick up and discharge the articles and one horizontal axe to take the parts from the picking station to the stacking unit;
- the ER3X is equipped, in addition to the vertical and horizontal axe, with a third rotating axe, 0°-180°, to turn parts for A-B stacking or other purpose. This system allows getting different stacking possibilities depending on the characteristics of the products.
The new stacking robots come with Easy, a performing software that makes it possible to implement the robot's work circle completely harmonized with all operations of the thermoforming machine. The axis interpolation during the movements permits the optimized displacements of the articles, from the picking up to the discharging points, and to achieve higher speed, i.e. up to 40 cycles/min. Thus, the robot skills have been definitely enhanced. A specific page has been created to provide the operator with wide flexibility in setting all the cycle parameters of the robot. The interface is user-friendly and intuitive. "Easy" has been developed to comply with the concept of 4.0 Industry and enables the Amut-Comi thermoforming machines to be networked with a digitial factory for smart production.
