Double celebration for robotics automation


The 1000th robot went to the USA for use with an injection moulding machine

Krauss Maffei celebrated the 30th anniversary of its Automation AG subsidiary operation with the supply of its 1000th robot from their manufacturing facilities in Schwerin.

The company held an open day to celebrate their milestones for more than 1000 visitors showing off a range of exhibits of linear and industrial robots.

Kraus Maffei specialises in the development and manufacture of linear and industrial robots which simplify and speed up the production process in the plastics mechanical engineering sector.

“The company’s strategy had been conclusively confirmed by the fact that it had increased its workforce and production area significantly over the past three decades. The most recent expansion was the doubling of the production assembly area in the Schwaig plant,” says Automation AG sales and commercial manager Thomas Marufke.

The 1000th robot supplied was a LRX-S 350 Linear robot with a payload of 35kg that will be used on a CX 350-3000 Injection Moulding machine for a customer in the USA.

The LRX – LRX-S series of robots are used for pick and place applications and more complex technologies such as insert moulding technologies with metal parts such as contacts, rings, bushings and plugs.

The series also includes complete solutions for demoulding injection moulded parts and for separating, sorting and packing product units.
