The possible applications of modern transfer robots are multifaceted in the glass production. In addition to removing articles from the press, reliable positioning between different production sections is always required. The 6-axis take-out and transfer robot from WALTEC is designed for very heavy articles, whereas the 4-axis SCARA robot is suitable for fast and dependable positioning of mediumweight products.
The ESERVO pusher from WALTEC operates with two servos, each one being independently responsible for either horizontal or vertical movement. Pushing articles into annealing lehr with this innovative technology results in higher product quality due to fewer damages and
The HSE take-out with only one servo-drive for vertical and horizontal movement has been developed for gripper or vacuum take-out.
The HVM take-out system is designed for the highest production speeds and maximum flexibility. Two suction heads or gripper arms rotate around a vertical axis. The vertical stroke of the arms is variable in the pick and place position. This eliminates a mechanical adjustment of the pick-up and/or place position on the fire polishing machine for different mould and article heights. The rotating and lifting movements automatically suit to changes in the production speed. In total 3 ESERVO drives are responsible for rotation, pick-up and place position.
