Expert press handling robots
August 14, 2008 By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Motoman’s EPH-series “expert press handling” robots are specifically designed for the rigors of press tending. The EPH-series feature higher performance drive systems on the S, L and U axes (axes 1, 2, 3) for high duty cycle applications. Shelf-mounted versions are available and provide improved clearance for die changes. These robots feature a high vibration rating of 9.8 m/s2 (1.0G), which is needed for the press room environment. All EPH-series robots are controlled by the high-performance NX100 controller. Dual-channel safety features include enhanced E-stop functionality, integrated speed monitoring, manual brake release switches and compliance with both ANSI/RIA R1506-1999 and Canadian safety standards.
