Hi-Tech Automation showcase integration of six axes FANUC robot with latest ROBOSHOT injection moulding machine at PDM13 Exhibition
Hi-Tech Automation will showcase the integration of robotic automation with a high speed load/unloader and an injection moulding machine at the PDM13 Exhibition, Telford, 18 -19 June. A strategic partner of FANUC UK, Hi-Tech Automation will demonstrate the flexibility offered by a six axes FANUC M-10iA robot, used in conjunction with a Hi-Tech manufactured high-speed side loader.
The demonstration will illustrate how short cycle times can be maintained even when loading inserts or labels and, Integrated with FANUC’s new ROBOSHOT S100-iA moulding machine, Hi-Tech will demonstrate the performance and productivity gains achievable through FANUC’s common control platform.
Making its first UK appearance, the FANUC ROBOSHOT S100-iA all electric moulding machine uses FANUC’s latest standard servo control system providing energy saving features such as regenerated power from decelerating motors; high levels of control for superior moulding repeatability and shorter cycle times enabled through high-speed and accurate simultaneous motion control.
