Extension of the WITTMANN PRIMUS robot series
At its show booth, the WITTMANN Group presents the latest models of the PRIMUS robot series: PRIMUS 10 and PRIMUS 26. PRIMUS 10 extends the PRIMUS series once more with a smaller model: The robot is specially designed for removing sprues and comes with sprue pincers as standard. The compact dimensions of the PRIMUS 10 with a horizontal axis length of 1,000 to 1,500 mm equip it for operation inside the safety enclosure of an injection molding machine. This reduces the costs incurred for the safety enclosure – and also ensures CE-compliant operation. If there is a change in production needs, the robot can integrate a vacuum circuit in order to carry out parts removal as well as sprue picking. The PRIMUS 26 robot extends the range even further. These are the first models in the PRIMUS series able to operate on injection molding machines with clamping forces of up to 400 t, and also the first PRIMUS robots with a moveable demolding axis. With its 10 kg load capacity, PRIMUS 26 offers the possibility to control even more complex grippers, and in addition to the highest load capacity among the PRIMUS models, it also has the greatest variety of strokes. The horizontal axis is available with a maximum stroke length of 6,000 mm. This makes applications with parts depositing behind the clamping unit of an injection molding machine possible. The maximum demolding stroke is 800 mm. Vertically, strokes of up to 1,400 mm can be realized, with the vertical stroke being performed via a single axis in PRIMUS 26, and via a telescopic axis in PRIMUS 26T.
