Our toughest industrial robots are designed for high performance under the most intense conditions, enabling automation of numerous casting and foundry processes. Robotics can perform die lubrication, sand core processing and even ladling of molten metal. What conditions are most challenging, Yaskawa solutions continue to deliver.
A wide range of casting and foundry processes can be automated using robotics. Material handling is a natural application, but robotics can also be used in die lubrication, sand core processing and even ladling molten metal. Casting and foundry application are some of the most challenging faced by an industrial robot.
Common hazards include:
IP67-rated wrists are standard on most models with IP65 bodies available on many models. The process liquids used in casting and foundry environments frequently mix with metal fragments and grit to create a sludge that sticks to the robot. To avoid this building up on the robot, we offer a high gloss anti-corrosive paint.
For high heat applications, high-durability robot jackets designed for a long life in the harshest of environments are available. These jackets can be customized using multiple materials to best meet the environmental requirements; they can be cooled if needed.
We have a range of material handling robots with payloads from 5-600 kg for use in casting and foundry applications. Our heaviest payload robots feature parallel-link construction for strength, rigidity and stabilization of high moment/inertia loads, while heavy-duty bearings provide smooth arm rotation.
