This device permits easy changes to the angle of the gripper arm in three dimensions. AGS now also has a PTFE coaঞng available for gripper fingers to prevent sঞcking of elastomeric or other so[ adhesive materials. AGS products are available online through a newly revised customer portal, which includes CadGrip so[ware for down- load. This lets users put together all gripper parts as a 3D model and view it from all perspecঞves. When finished, the user can export the corresponding components as an Excel document and use it to order the components through the portal. | 49 2204 968 10 0 Injecঞon-Blow Machines with Energy-Saving Servo-Hydraulics Jomar Corp. | Booth S12077 Jomar Corp., which experimented with an all-electric drive in the past, has concluded that the most cost-effecঞve ener- gy-saving opঞon is its IntelliDrive Series with a servo-hydrau- lic pump. Jomar is running the IntelliDrive Model 85S (72 tons) that was first introduced at K 2016. The IntelliDrive system has also been extended to its two largest machines, 135 and 175 tons. In fact, the convenঞonal hydraulic version of the Model 175 has been disconঞnued. Intellidrive machines re- portedly save up to 50% in energy consumpঞon and use 40% less tower water, at only 10-15% higher cost than standard IBM presses. | (609) 646-8000 High-Speed Robots for Thermoforming, Packaging Ranger Automaঞon Systems Inc. | Booth W3673 Ranger Automaঞon's new TR Series Robots increase produc- ঞvity and save labor on thermoforming lines and other pack- aging applicaঞons. Ultra high-speed servo drives allow part extracঞon and stacking at cycle ঞmes as fast as 3 sec. The controls feature convenient templates to create stacking pat- terns for organized product flow, which can eliminate two- thirds of the labor requirements on the line. The TR Robots can fit any new or exisঞng thermoformer, with configuraঞons available to stack parts off the side or at the end of the line, or with the Downstacker opঞon, to stack directly under the line onto indexing conveyors. rangerautomaঞ | (508) 865-0151 Thermoformer Offers More Precision, Control of Form and Trim SencorpWhite | Booth W591 SencorpWhite releases its Ultra 2. Designed for mulঞple in- dustries looking for efficiency and more precision and control of form and trim, the Ultra 2 is equipped with a more robust, heavy-duty, rail transport system, unmatched in the industry. This new rail transport system lets formers minimize mate- rial usage and generate less waste. The Ultra 2 uঞlizes a pro- prietary off-load system, which is said to be up to 70% faster than previous designs. The Ultra 2 combines speed along with the ability to deliver either more ups by cycle or produce larger pieces. SencorpWhite's Ultra 2 includes inline steel rule tools to help reduce tool and labor costs. Tools are designed to short- en producঞon ঞme, giving processors the ability to change tools within hours, not days, at a significant cost savings (10 ঞmes less than tradiঞonal punch and die). | (508) 771-9400 55
