All-Servo Sprue Picker

The all-servo Sepro S5 Picker is a fast-acting, beam-mounted Cartesian sprue picker, based on the design of the economical Sepro Success range of pick-and-place robots.

In its standard configuration, the S5 Picker is fitted with a simple sprue gripper (with control sensor) and an integral unloading chute and guarding so that it operates entirely inside the footprint of an injection molding machine (IMM). Optionally, the S5 Picker can be fitted with an extended (up to 1000 mm) horizontal arm so sprues can be dropped outside the IMM or, with the addition of an R1 wrist rotation and simple end-of-arm tooling, it can be used in basic part-removal applications. The unit, which is sized for use with IMMs between 20 and 200 tons, has a maximum payload (tooling and parts) of 1 kg.

3-Axis Robots

Sepro 3-axis Cartesian robot lineup includes fourteen different models designed for general-purpose pick-and-place and stacking applications, as well as more demanding jobs. The ‘universal’ Success range for IMMs from 20 to 700 tons and the larger Strong range for machines up to 2800 tons offer a competitive solution to everyday molding tasks.  For complex applications, that demand greater speed, precision, and broader capabilities, molders can use  Sepro’s more technically advanced 3-axis robots, which include the Sepro S5 range) for IMMs from 30-800 tons and S7 models for machines sized from 700-5000 tons. These robots can be adapted to special applications (axial, dual-arm, dual-mobile layouts, etc.) and are known for their reliability.

5-Axis Robots

Sepro’s 5-axis robots combine its 3-axis Cartesian platform with a 2-axis Stäubli CNC wrist.  The result is an exceptionally fast and precise robot capable of handling complex in-mold operations, value-added manufacturing steps downstream, and more rapid mold and production changes. The smaller 5X line bring 5-axis capabilities to IMMs up to 800 tons, while the larger 7X line equips machines up to 5000 tons, handling maximum payloads to 100 kgs.

6-Axis Robots

Sepro 6-axis robots also span the range from universal to complex applications.  Sepro Yaskawa 6-axis robots blend performance, configurability, and value to serve IMMs from 20 to 500 tons in demanding automotive and general-purpose applications. Sepro Stäubli polyarticulated robots combine the speed and precision of 6-axis performance with an ISO cleanroom-compatible design suited to premium-quality manufacturing operations.

Collaborative Robots

In partnership with Universal Robots, Sepro now offers the industry’s leading collaborative robots (cobots) with Visual control, guaranteeing smooth integration with other Sepro robots and the molding machine. Molders now can install safe, open configurations for various, including peripheral operations or in advanced automation cells. The new solutions from Sepro and UR ensure shortened process-development times and faster installation, resulting in easy-to-deploy, easy-to-test post-processing operations and turn-key automation systems.

Sepro to Demonstrate Automation Solutions With IMM Makers and Technology Partners

Sepro Group will invite K 2019 visitors to “Experience Full Control” with a series of demonstrations and exhibits that harness the power of collaboration to achieve new levels of productivity, quality and flexibility in plastics injection molding. The importance of collaboration can be seen easily in Sepro partnerships with other automation companies, open integration with injection-molding machine OEMs, and development projects with customers.

Sepro is exhibiting in Hall 12, Stand A49 at the world’s largest plastics show, which is being held October 16 – 23 at Messe Dusseldorf in Germany.

A total of eight robots will be operating on the stand, including 3-, 5- and 6-axis models as well as collaborative units (cobots), provided through a recently announced partnership with Universal Robots. Several of the robots will be part of automation cells centered around two operating injection-molding machines. Sepro products also can be seen operating on the stands of eleven IMM partners exhibiting at the show.

“A large part of Sepro’s recent growth is thanks to the breadth of technology we offer as a result of collaboration with injection-molding machine makers and other automation companies,” notes Eric Radat, President of Sepro Group. “It is what makes it possible for our customers to “Experience Full Control,” and it will be on full display in Dusseldorf this October.”

Molding Cells
One of the two automation cells on the stand will feature a Sumitomo Demag molding machine producing a technical component that will be removed from the mold by an SDR Speed 7 robot. Made by Sepro especially for sale with Sumitomo Demag machines, this robot, is a special high-speed version of Sepro’s technological S5-25 3-axis Cartesian robot capable of getting in and out of the mold space in under 1 sec.

The other molding cell will also include a Sepro-Universal Robots cobot together with a Sepro Success 11 Cartesian robots operating on a molding machine from Haitian International, which will be producing drinking cups. As the cups are molded, visitors watching the demonstration will be able to enter a brief message (a name, for instance) to be printed onto a label. The cobot then will apply the label and hand the personalized cup to the visitor. The label and the cup will be recyclable.

Cobots and Other Demonstrations
A second cobot will be running in a stand-alone demonstration of robot/human interaction. Visitors to the booth will be able to choose between a round box of candy and a square one. With the help of a machine-vision camera and a flexible feeding system, the cobot will pick the appropriate shape and hand it directly to visitors.

Thanks to a recent agreement with Universal Robots, the market leader in collaborative robots, Sepro has added cobots to its portfolio of automation solutions for injection molders.

Other standalone robot demonstrations will present new choices for 5- and 6-axis technology.

 Sepro Lab
A special section of the Sepro stand will be dedicated to existing and future projects aimed at providing technologies that makes it easier for molders to use Sepro robots efficiently and profitably. These include:
  • OptiCycle, the Sepro wizard that helps even inexperienced programmers develop an optimized robot cycle
  • Live Support, a smart-device application that streamlines robot troubleshooting and maintenance to maximize uptime.
  • Open integration
  • Visual control training
  • Preview of other groundbreaking tools and functionalities
Other Sepro Robots at K 2019
The Sepro commitment to integration and collaboration now makes it possible for injection molders to get packaged machine/robot solutions through manufacturers from Germany, Japan, China, USA, France and elsewhere. At K 2019, eleven different IMM suppliers are operating Sepro robots on their own machines.

About us

Company details

Sepro was one of the first companies in the world to develop Cartesian beam robots for injection-molding machines, introducing its first CNC controlled “manipulator” in 1981. Today, Sepro Group is one of the largest independent sellers of robots in the world, offering a wider choice of robots than any supplier in the plastics industry. Three-, five-, and six-axis servo robots; special-purpose units; and complete automation systems, are all supported by the Visual control platform developed by Sepro especially for injection molders. This unique controller is a key component in what the company refers to as ‘open integration’ – a collaborative approach to equipment connectivity and interoperability that can be tailored to exactly suit the specific needs processors and injection-molding OEMs. At Sepro, customers “Experience Full Control.”
