Today we would like to give you some food for thought in order to help you chose the right robot for your production needs. Each production process is different; the greater its complexity, the higher the resulting costs. That is why it is so important to find the right automation solution.
When you have to deal with long production lines featured by vertical excursions, made of different workstations, in turn crossed by semi-finished products, or a challenging space-constraining layout, the Cartesian system is undoubtedly your best option, as it guarantees maximum results and performance where the application requires a linear movement over an extended working area. Such a condition is typical of many application fields, such as food & beverage packaging, automotive and painting.
Cartesian robot also allow to unload the product longitudinally and to install the IMMs in a parallel position in order to drastically reduce the footprint on the ground. Their linear movements are much easier to manage and their features are more suitable for many technologies. For example, when dealing with Pick and Place applications, the linear axes of a Cartesian robot allow faster and more precise movements that significantly reduce the IMM interlock time while maximizing the production efficiency.
Campetella offers a wide range of high-speed Cartesian robots, which combine the benefits typical of a top-entry with the performance of a side-entry.
In this regard, our best-seller GS2 X-Series top-entry robot is definitely worth mentioning. An uncompromising model for ultra-fast take-out applications, designed for the food-packaging world with solutions and materials that are more typical of the motorsport industry rather than classic automation. Thanks to its innovative materials such as carbon fiber and to the most advanced Finite Element Method (FEM) techniques, we have succeeded in obtaining highly optimized structures. Guess what! We have achieved class-leading accelerations for extremely low cycle times, low vibrations and the highest reliability.
Solid ground stands, ultra-light moving parts and powerful servomotors outline the construction philosophy of mechanics designed for maximum productivity, which are enhanced by the latest generation electronics and an internally developed proprietary software aiming at optimizing the cycle while reducing any latency in the interaction between the robot and the IMM.
Our new GS2W and GS3W X-Series models arise precisely from such solid foundations. They belong to the new stack mold robots selection that Campetella is ready to launch on the market, which is specifically designed for stack molding applications in order to satisfy its customers’ needs in the most varied application fields, from the medical to the food packaging and disposable cutlery industry. A perfect mix of performance and elegance, unrivaled on the market and all set to compete with much more bulky side entry robots.
With its servo-driven wrist and seven servo-driven axes total, the GS3W robot is a top-entry premium class robot with a double vertical axis, designed for an extreme performance. The cantilever extraction axis fixed on the opposite side of the hopper prevent any collision problem and allows minimizing the shifting masses while obtaining maximum acceleration. The self-lubricating sliding blocks and roll-by-balls on hardened steel prismatic guides ensure cleanliness and durability over the years without requiring any greasing, while the innovative software prevents, in any condition, the two vertical axes from colliding, thus guaranteeing the utmost safety and reliability.
Less maintenance inevitably translates into reduced downtime and relating productivity losses, which result in significant cost savings. The economic advantage gained by choosing a Cartesian robot is evident also in terms of after-sales assistance, since our technicians need less training, installation and intervention time.
