Battenfeld GmbH of Meinerzhagen, Germany, showed the newly designed Unirob R10 robot at the Fakuma show in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
The robot accelerates faster to its top speed, slashing cycle times for injection molding, the company said. Through a joint control platform, the movements of the robot and the injection press are synchronized.
Battenfeld developed a new drive system based on “high-performance elastic servo drives.” Engineers also reduced the number of components.
At Fakuma, Battenfeld displayed a Unirob R10/B4 robot, which can handle loads up to 22 pounds, running on an all-electric EM press making a light fixture.
The company's U.S. headquarters, Battenfeld of America Inc., is based in West Warwick, R.I.
