Conair Group of Emsworth, Pa., has introduced new traverse robots, the HEC (above), HES and HE, for injection presses as large as 350 tons. The three-axis, pick-and-place HEC robot is driven by pneumatic cylinders. Prices start at less than $20,000. A hand-held controller is optional. A servo-motor drives the horizontal axis of the HES robot, which can reach cycle times of less than 10 seconds. The HE combines electric drive on the horizontal axis and pneuma tic power on the vertical and strip axes. Tel. (412) 312-6000, fax (412) 312-6320.
