A new three-axis linear robot for large parts that reportedly moves as fast as a smaller robot comes from Remak of North America Inc., Hebron, Ky. Shown at K 2007, the all-servo model RC 120 is the largest in the RC line, designed for presses up to 5500 tons. It has payload capacity of 132 lb, though two robots can be mounted on the same beam to carry up to 264 lb. Features include strip stroke up to 2000 mm at up to 2 meters/sec, vertical stroke up to 3000 mm at up to 3 m/ sec, and traverse stroke of 5000 mm at up to 3 m/sec. It is programmed with a hand-held pendant. (859) 372-3382 • www.remakna.com
