Yushin America Inc.´s new N-HOP robot is strictly hands-off.
Yushin said setup operations can be done remotely, without ever touching the robot.
Another feature, a servo-kick axis, allows the N-HOP to run rack molds. Ordinarily, the rack would be in the way of the robot when the mold closes. The new Yushin model can wait over the stationary mold, then kick over the mold-open area when the mold opens.
The controller can recall 15 setups, including servo positions and speeds.
The Cranston, R.I., firm also has cut prices by 15 percent on its HOPIII-M450 and 550 series of sprue-picker robots.
