Dual Arm Telescopic Robot for High-speed Applications on Mid-range Presses

W823D robot

WITTMANN's latest introduction is the W823D dual arm telescopic robot with 5 servo axis designed for automation of stack molds and other applications requiring two vertical arms. The W823D dual arm telescopic servo robot allows simultaneous or sequential operation of each vertical arm in order to remove parts from stack molds in medium tonnage machines up to 400 tons (440 U.S. tons). The independent control also permits operation with family stack molds where parts have different designs and handling characteristics.

The W823D servo dual arm telescopic robot has a fixed kick-stroke beam and two telescopic vertical arms on the Y-axis, offering payloads of 3, 5 or 10 kg for each arm. The Y-axis provides fast strokes of 1,000 or 1,200 mm with minimum vibration while reducing the clearance requirements for applications with low ceilings or other obstacles like cranes, mezzanines, etc. and where robot automation may not have previously been possible.

The Y-axis is available in three speed settings based on the payload:

  • Ultra high-speed servo (2 x 3 kg payload)
  • High-speed servo (2 x 5 kg payload)
  • Standard servo (2 x 10 kg payload)

The dual arm high-speed (HS) option is for applications requiring less than a 10 second overall cycle time and the ultra high-speed (UHS) option for cycle times under 6 seconds.

The X-axis has a 1,200 mm reach and a fixed kick-stroke. The Z-axis is available with strokes from 2,000 to 5,000 mm. The robot is equipped, as standard, with 1 vacuum and 1 gripper circuit per arm. Additional options are available to suit the specific application.

The W823D is equipped with WITTMANN's new R8 control with full color industrial LCD display for simple, flexible programming. The control cabinet is fully integrated on the robot eliminating the need for bulky cabinets or extra wiring and the related maintenance issues.
