The smallest model in the S5 line of Cartesian servo robots for complex automation applications will debut at NPE 2012 in Orlando, Apr. 1-5, in booth 348. The model S5-15 from Sepro America, LLC, Pittsburgh, completes the company’s S5 fifth-generation line, which has longer strokes and larger payload capacities than comparable Generation 4 (G4) models—while maintaining the same speed capability. The standard 5-kg (11-lb) payload of the S5-15 is more than 66% higher than the maximum available on the comparable G4 unit, and the 500-mm (19.6-in.) demolding or strip stroke is 25% longer. That means the S5-15 can handle parts with deeper draw. It’s aimed at presses from 30 to 180 tons. Two other models, introduced in 2010, handle press sizes of 120 to 800 tons.
