NPE2018 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY THURSDAY NPE 2018 : THE PLASTICS SHOW SHOW DAILY New Top-of-the-Line Servo Robots with Industry 4.0 Connecঞvity Yushin America, Inc. | Booth W2173 "More agile, smarter and faster" are said to describe the new top-of-the-line FRA series linear servo robots from Yushin. Three mod- els are suited to presses from 50 to 600 tons. They come with a brand-new E-Touch V controller that's said to be ergonomically compact and accepts tap-and-swipe gesture commands. It also has a dual screen that splits the informaঞon content for greater convenience in programming without the need to switch screens. Frequently used funcঞons are grouped in one main screen, while users can freely assign I/O signals or buons of their choice to the sub-screen. The FRA is equipped with new pat- ent-pending features such as Acঞve Vibra- ঞon Control, which acঞvely dampens vibra- ঞons based on sensor signals, as well as Arc Moঞon Control and Adapঞve Moঞon Con- trol. It also comes with DeviceNet, EtherCAT, and EtherNet/IP protocols to interface with and control all downstream equipment. Also available on the FRA series is Intu Line, a new cloud-based service that collects and communicates producঞon data from the molding cell along with real-ঞme video foot- age of part takeout and handling. A produc- ঞon manager can connect to the FRA robot via Intu Line anywhere and anyঞme to moni- tor producঞon. Producঞon reports for a day, week, or month can be downloaded with one click. The same informaঞon can be ac- cessed remotely by Yushin technicians to monitor and diagnose any apparent prob- lems. Yushin is demonstraঞng Intu Line by accessing producঞon data on a smartphone from all FRA robots running at the show. Two FRA robots are running at Yushin's booth with others at Maruka/Toyo, Nissei America, and Toshiba. Yushin says Intu Line adds to exisঞng Industry 4.0 features of its robots, such as remote troubleshooঞng, predicঞve maintenance, integrated controls, and smart sensor protocols. | (401) 463-1800 Master-Batch Pellet Classifier Features Quick-Release Screens Trendelkamp L.P. | Booth W7253 Trendelkamp introduces a new Master-Batch Pellet Classifier with quick release screens.

Mulঞ- ple versions are available for collecঞng over- size, good size and undersize pellets. Throughput ranges are available from 350 to 5,000 kg/hr. | (470) 239-4269 68
