Engel Holding GmbH, teaming with Kuka Roboter GmbH, has expanded its range of easix six-axis articulating robots, so they can be used with injection molding machines with up to 5,500 metric tons of clamping force.
Easix's reach extends to 153 inches, and the larger robot can carry loads up to 529 pounds. The robots are used to make car bumpers and instrument panels, and waste containers.
For smaller articulating robots, Engel is continuing its collaboration with Staubli Tec-Systems GmbH.
Engel Holding is based in Schwertberg, Austria. Engel North America is in York, Pa.
