Andreas Sturesson, Export Area Sales Manager at Wemo, what can you tell us about the new xDesign family member?
The 8-7, as the new top entry robot is called, places itself between the models 8-5 and 16-5 in terms of size. It may not say much, but it means that the robot covers machine sizes 75–450 tonnes. Along with the 8-5, the 8-7 has been fitted with a newly developed Y-arm. The advantages of the new arm are several and for the 8-7 it means above all increased stability, increased handling weight handling and longer stroke.


Okay, so the Wemo 8-7 xDesign is at least as smart as its siblings?
Yes, that’s the right conclusion. The 8-7 is based on the same platform as its little brother the 8-5, but we have increased the power, which makes it well suited for increased handling weight. In this way, the need that arises between the range offered by 8-5 and 16-5 is covered. For customers with high demands on advanced automation covering 75 to 450 tonnes, the Wemo 8-7 xDesign is just perfect.
