For a more cost-effective production, more operations are often added outside the injection moulding machine, like assembly, inspection or packing of pattern layouts in boxes.
In these cases, all robot movements can be an obstacle to reach the requested cycle time.
In order to improve this, Wemo presents a solution called Tandem Concept. With this concept, two robots are mounted on
the same main axis (Z-axis).
The required operation processes are divided without installing two separate robots in the cell.
So, valuable surface space is released, compared to previous solutions.
The tandem robot covers machine sizes from 150-4000 ton.
The control of the two robot is easy done by one hand held controller for best user friendliness and comfortable programming and operation.
