Sepro Industrial Robots

Sepro range of high-performance industrial robots to add to your Injection Moulding Machine. From simple sprue-pickers to elaborate 6-Axis robots, our robots and automation solutions are designed to meet the exacting demands of today's plastic industry.

3 Axis Industrial Robots for Injection Moulding Machine

3 Axis Robot

Multi Inject Robot

The two Multi Inject robot models are specially designed for transverse unloading in the mold without touching the secondary vertical injection unit of the IMM. Unlike conventional Cartesian robots, these robots are designed with a demolding arm that slides on the horizontal axis to access the mold vertically. They are more economic than a side-entry robot and also benefit from the flexibility of a 3-axis Cartesian robot.

5 Axis Industrial Robot

5 Axis Robot

5 Dual Arm Robots

The range of 5 Dual Arm robots provides a solution for specifically equipping injection molding machines for simple unloading of three-plate molds. These robots are designed from a 3-axis Cartesian robot with a servocontrolled main arm equipped with a pneumatic rotation (0-90°) for picking and placing parts from a 2-axis secondary sprue picker arm. Simultaneous control of the 5 axes optimizes work time in the mold. Programming is simplified thanks to the Visual 2 control system.

6 Axis Industrial Robots for Injection Moulding Machine

6 Axis Robot

6X Visual: Sepro - Yaskawa

The range of 6-axis polyarticulated robots: 6X Visual combined with the Sepro Visual 3 control platform offers a Premium solution for carrying out all tasks, from simple unloading to more complex applications. The Sepro Yaskawa large-sized arms are suitable for use in a large work area. They can take heavy loads for 20-tonne to 5000-tonne Injection Moulding Machine.

In Mould Labelling System

In Mould Labelling System

JAKA Robotics

JAKA Robotics was founded in 2014 with the aim of developing a new generation of Collaborative Robots (Cobots) based on innovation, R&D and forward thinking for the smart factory environment.

Innovative breakthroughs have been made in many applications such as drive control integration, integral joints, free-drive programming, wireless connection, etc. JAKA has continuously led the trend of robotics development. Their robots are easy to install and even easier to program using the JAKA APP which can be downloaded onto a tablet, phone or PC.

Thanks to the concept of integrated industrial design, JAKA Cobots can perform their tasks well in harsh noise and dust environments, and excel in strict environments requiring high cleanliness.

JAKA Cobot is based on the Linux scripting language, has good compatibility, and provides SDK (C, C++, C#) driver for secondary development of the system. Meanwhile, universal control is designed for fast docking of upstream and downstream automation equipment. Its outstanding features guarantee that when JAKA Cobots work in harsh environments like high temperature, high noise, high cleanliness, dust, etc., can still cope with operators, other robots, and working situations.

JAKA Cobot originates from aerospace science and technology. Based on space robotic arm, it improves overall optimization on motor, reducer, and drive control board. JAKA Cobot is lightweight and compact, easy to disassemble, easy to transport, etc.

JAKA Cobots can be widely applied to every application, and complete the production deployment rapidly. Some of the fields include screw driving, glue dispensing, pick and place, painting, palletizing, assembly and even quality inspection to name but a few.

The latest in automation solutions,
end-of-arm tooling & robotics.

We facilitate automation solution purchases, design,
manufacturing, setup, staff training and programming.
