High-speed robot maker CBW Automation will roll out its SSE robot at NPE 2015, in Booth W-2103.
Billed as CBW's most technologically advanced robot, the SSE expands on the company's speed advantage of high flow vacuum. The high flow vacuum system has been used for decades to help customers get the fastest possible transfer of parts from the mold to automation for downstream operations. Productivity is optimized with an intrusion time of less than a half second.
The SSE robot can recognize that the vacuum has been achieved as fast as 60 milliseconds, CBW said.
The new design of the SSE incorporates a strip stroke, and that, combined with the high flow vacuum provide several benefits: it allows for more complex mold and part geometries, undercuts to be stripped quickly, and for the robot to follow the motion of the mold for unscrewing or more-complex part ejection.
CBW's SSE will be demonstrated at the Engel booth, W-1303, using a two-by-four stack mold in a 720-ton e-speed press.
CBW is based in Fort Collins, Colo.
