Sepro America announces Axess 44 servo robot
The Axess 44 has a standard horizontal stroke of 2500mm (98 inches), although longer beams (up to 10,000mm or over 30 feet) are available on request. A standard telescoping vertical arm provides a stroke of 2000mm (78 inches), without requiring additional ceiling height. The standard demolding or strip stoke is 1100mm (43 inches). Maximum instantaneous speed on the horizontal axes is 2 meters/sec, and the robot has a payload capacity of 25 kg (55 lb).
Like the smaller robots previously available, the new Axess 44 comes equipped with the latest Touch 2 controls. Using ultra-simple icon-driven instructions, even an inexperienced operator can create basic pick-and-place robot cycles. Easy-to-follow on-screen prompts lead the user through the execution of the robot cycle, including the teaching of all relevant robot positions. Axess Touch 2 controls also support direct programming the step-by-step creation of a robot cycle from scratch. Up to 99 different applications can be memorized and stored for instant recall.A USB memory stick is available for storage and transfer of programs.
