Collaboraঞve Robots with Quick-Change Grippers & Producঞon Data Reporঞng Rethink Roboঞcs | Booth S34204 So-called "collaboraঞve" robots, or "cobots," that can operate safely in proximity to humans are gaining applicaঞons in plasঞcs. One of the pioneers in this automaঞon category, Rethink Roboঞcs, is showing off its one-armed Sawyer cobot with two recent enhancements. One is the ClickSmart family of gripper kits that can be switched out and automaঞcally sensed by the robot in seconds. These grippers come in pneumaঞc and vacuum versions. Second is the Intera 5.2 so[ware with Intera Insights, said to be the first cobot so[ware to display real-ঞme manufacturing data such as cycle ঞme, part count, speed and force on a customizable dashboard. rethinkroboঞ | (617) 229-5657 Really Big Machines Dominate Milacron Booth Milacron Booth including Cimcool, DME, Mold-Masters and Uniloy | Booth W2703 Jaw-droppingly large injecঞon machines are one unmistakable theme at the Milacron booth this year. Impossible to miss is a brand-new Cincinnaঞ 2250-tonner that Milacron says is the largest-tonnage injecঞon machine ever run at an NPE show. Aimed at automoঞve, appliance, and other large-part markets, this "beast" as Milacron calls it, has been sold to i2-tech Custom Injecঞon Molders in West Des Moines, Iowa. The servo-hydraulic two-platen press has five Fanuc servomotors controlling five gear pumps for improved reliability, expanded mulঞcomponent capability, higher maximum mold weights, and faster clamp speeds. An improved machine layout and enhanced ac- cess to the ejector and mold areas are said to make maintenance easier. It is molding a large ATV side-by-side dashboard weighing 10.5 lb, handled by a Sepro six-axis robot. Also in the Milacron booth is the massive platen for a 6,600-ton Cincinnaঞ machine the firm is building for 20/20 Custom Mold- ed Plasঞcs in Holiday City, Ohio. Milacron also is running the largest ton- nage Milacron-Fanuc Roboshot all-electric machine ever offered in the Americas. The Roboshot 450 (500 U.S. tons) has ঞebar spacing of 36.2 in. It's molding detergent caps in 24 caviঞes on 6-sec cycle. Another sizeable machine at Milacron's booth is the Maxima Performance 600wp, two-platen press, which is demonstraঞng Milacron's "Core Back/Reverse Coining" pro- cess with MuCell microcellular foaming from Trexel and rapid heat/cool molding with Roctool's inducঞon-heaঞng technology to achieve a Class A surface on an automoঞve door panel map pocket. | (513) 536-2000 44
