Add A Robot To An IMM

An injection-molding function package lets processors put Kuka robots into 100 to 6000-ton injection-molding machines (IMMs) with less installation and engineering time.

The package is optimized for KS shelf-mounted, injection-molding robots. It includes an SPI interface between the IMM and robot, a Festo Device Net Valve stack with vacuum generators, and complete energy supply and pneumatic tubing from the robot base to the sixth axis faceplate. End-of-arm tooling can be connected with no additional accessories. The six-axis robots have 3 to 500-kg payloads and 635 to 3,700-mm reaches.
