SleeveBOT® is our new anthropomorphous robotic arm for fully automatic sleeves changeover during new printing job setup. SleeveBOT® is equipped with our innovative patented gripper.
THE MOST PRODUCTIVE: complete sleeve changeover in less than 10 min
THE MOST COST-EFFECTIVE SYSTEM: one single gripper for all sleeves’ formats
THE SAFEST AND MOST ROBUST: process accuracy and repeatability in a safe working environment for the operators
Our New Robotic Arm has been designed to perform very fast movements using the latest robotic technologies available in the market. This guarantees repeatable performances over time and limited operator intervention needed during heavy sleeve changeover operations, re-allocating his activity to more value-added tasks for new job setup (e.g. recipes setup, colors setup,…)
OUR INNOVATIVE PATENTED GRIPPER HAS UNIQUE ADVANTAGES IN THE MARKET
THE MOST PRODUCTIVE: fast gripping guarantees a complete sleeve changeover in less than 10 minutes and minimized press downtime over time. This means adding up to 6.9 M€ of extra production over machine lifetime when comparing to non-robotic solutions for sleeve changeover.
THE MOST COST-EFFECTIVE SYSTEM: one single gripper for all sleeves’ formats. Our Innovative Gripper is unique in the market since it adapts to any size of the sleeves. This brings several benefits:
- Fit any sleeves’ size already in use by the customer
- No need to purchase and maintain special sleeves (e.g. with special flanges) or having extra spare carriers, sleeve and mandrels
- Change only the sleeves while keeping carrier and axis/mandrels on-board of the flexo press
- No need for Extra Operating Areas around the machine to disassemble Sleeve, Carrier and Mandrels – with dedicated manpower
THE SAFEST AND MOST ROBUST: process accuracy and repeatability in a safe working environment for the operators:
Robotics Automation Technology guarantees process quality, robustness and repeatability regardless of operators’ skills
Safe Working Environment since operator does not handle heavy sleeves on elevated platform from high above ground position
