HP20D-A80 Robot

The new 6-axis HP20D-A80 robot features high-precision drives on major axes and is designed for high-accuracy cutting and dispensing applications. Formcut software automatically generates the ideal path to cut out shapes based on user-specified geometry. Circle, rectangle, ellipse, pentagon and hexagon shapes are supported with easy definition of shape size and rotation from a single programmed point.

MS80W Robot

The new MS80W robot is a powerful, flexible model designed for a variety of processes. It features fast axial speeds and acceleration which reduces cycle times and increases production output. The MS80W excels in dispensing, machine tending, material cutting, material handling and press tending applications.

EPH130D and EPH130RLD Robots

The high-speed EPH130D and EPH130RLD "expert press handling" robots are specifically designed for the rigors of press handling. Both feature a high vibration rating that makes it ideal for the press room. The EPH130D is used for floor-mount applications. When a shelf-mounted robot is needed, the EPH130RLD allows improved clearance for die changes. Both models are compatible with the DX100 controller.
