At NPE 2000, Automated Assemblies Corp. of Clinton, Mass., showed fast robots and ran robots to demonstrate its joint ventures with Fanuc Robotics and Innovative Products and Equipment Inc.
Automated Assemblies now offers a color operator interface as standard, at no extra cost, on several models.
At the Chicago show, the company claimed the 0.22-second takeout time recorded by its improved three-axis robot, the AZ-100HP, was the fastest of any top-entry robot at NPE. The robot handled a laboratory medical device at the show.
A new sprue picker, the AX Express, features an all-linear bearing design. Priced at $4,750, the robot comes in three sizes: 18 inches, 24 inches and 32 inches.
Automated Assemblies also has boosted the speed of its Servo Express line by 25-50 percent, thanks to a new motor and amplifier package. At NPE, the company showed a Servo Express, the AZ-500, with a telescoping vertical arm for moving large parts in areas with low ceilings.
Automated Assemblies also showed integrated cell molding medical parts. The cell included an Automated robot, and leak testing, ultrasonic welding and pad printing equipment from Innovative Products of Lowell, Mass.
The company's venture with Fanuc, of Farmington Hills, Mich., was highlighted by an articulating arm robot handling a truck instrument panel.
