BOLTON, ONTARIO — Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. debuted a Model TE-7 top-entry robot for medium-sized injection presses, with clamping forces of 250-550 tons. The robot can run at a six-second dry cycle time. It has an in-out time of a half-second when lifting a full payload of 15.4 pounds. Digital alternating-current drives run the three main axes. A locking wrist maintains position of the end-of-arm tooling while in the mold.
When installed on Husky's G-Series of injection presses, the robot shares the machine's controller. For other brands, the robot is controlled by a pendant.
Bolton-based Husky also is marketing a Model GLC 2000 hot runner temperature controller with 36 control zones. The controller supports the Euromap 17 communication protocol and allows type J or type K thermocouples. It can display temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
