What: Articulated Robotic Press Automation System (ARPAS)
Why you should care: Amada says that this system, which is designed specifically to work with its stamping presses, is capable of outperforming virtually any manual feed operation. And unlike transfer-bar type systems pass line heights of presses do not all have to be the same.
Pertinent Data: ARPAS consists of six-axis servo-driven robots that come in two models-10 and 30-and have workpiece weight capacities ranging from 3.5 lbs. to 16.5 lbs. The robot's articulating movement is capable of loading and unloading parts at complex angles and inverting parts between operations. The number of robots used can be quickly increased or decreased to meet production needs.
