Motion Controls Robotics to Exhibit at CPP Expo

Automation improves the safety and efficiency of the roll handling process. Visit Motion Controls Robotics in booth #4421 at the CPP Expo to see how FANUC robots are integrated into the application to transform the roll handling process.

Fremont, OH 8/11/2015 - Motion Controls Robotics, Inc (MCRI) will display their unique capabilities for robotic roll handling in booth #4421 during the combined Converting and Package Printing (CPP) Expo and Graph Expo, September 13-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.


Robotic roll handling is an application where Motion Controls Robotics has gained a variety of experience over the years from smaller, lighter weight rolls such as roofing to large, heavy rolls of adhesive tape to bulky rolls of insulation. Each job requires a custom solution, flexible end of arm tool, and a durable robot. Motion Controls Robotics has designed a variety of robotic roll handling systems, including palletizing, packaging, machine tending, and general roll/material handling. MCRI has experience developing end of arm tools that allow the robot to have a dual purpose saving the customer money on robotics and floor space. Lastly, MCRI uses only industry leading FANUC robots for their applications. FANUC robots are extremely reliable with uptime of 80,000 hours mean time between failures. FANUC's robot selection also features a variety of robots with world class reach and payload.

Rolls are typically heavy or bulky and having people moving these can cause ergonomic issues and even injury. Automating roll handling improves the safety and improves the efficiency of the process. MCRI can also pair a SmartCart Automatic Guided Cart solution into the robotic roll handling application to take away or deliver rolls to the robot cell.

Motion Controls Robotics is offering in conjunction with the CPP Expo free preventative maintenance for one year with the purchase of a new robotic roll handling system. This offer is worth more than $900 for each robot in the system. Come see a Motion Controls Robotics' representative in booth #4421 to pick up a certificate for free preventative maintenance for when the time comes to automate.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
