All-servo, three-axis traversing robots from Sytrama in Italy are newly available in the Americas from Dri-Air Industries, Inc., E. Windsor, Conn. Dri-Air, which specializes in drying, blending, and conveying equipment, has two top executives with experience at plastics robot vendors. (The robots were formerly distributed by ACS Group, parent of AEC and Sterling.) Sytrama robots are described as very rugged, easy to program, and competitively priced. The G Series comes with payload capacities of 11 to 154 lb for use on presses from 40 to 4500 tons. Larger models have a telescoping vertical axis. The SCP controller is a handheld pendant with color touchscreen, which shows diagnostics and stores 100 main programs and 100 sub-programs. Options include servo wrist actions and EOAT quickchange plates. Dri-Air will exhibit the robots at NPE 2009 in Chicago this June. (860) 627-5110 • www.dri-air.com
