XW-VI series Top of the Range Cartesian Robots

XW-VI Series vertical entry robots represent the ideal solution for the handling of moulded pieces. The basic robot of the XW series is equipped with a colour touch screen pendant and the operator can either choose the pre-set operative modes selectable from the pendant or to program it directly with free programming. This series offers many advantages like the huge potential of the controller STEC-520, extremely short extraction times, 5 CNC axis series and, most importantly, low power consumption.

Extreme versatility

XW-VI Series is suitable for automations such as metal insert loading operations, IML applications and interfacing with special automations beside the IMM. The overall robot dimension has been reduced by installing the servo drivers inside the carriage and the controller box on the back of the traverse beam. All axes use high quality double prismatic bearing guide with special bearings for reduced maintenance and smooth operation all helping to achieve precision positioning to 0.1mm. Moreover, the vertical arm composed with a telescopic system allows to reduce the total height of the robot thus increasing movement speed.

STEC 520

As the newest and most performing member of our controllers’ family, STEC 520 can operate in two different ways, based on the customer’s needs: operational modes programming (preinstalled operations), and free programming, with the possibility to save up to 999 different mould programs.

Safety above all

The collision detector of XW-VI Series STEC520 controller detects forthcoming collisions with other objects and immediately stops the robot. Up to 5 levels of detecting and sensitivity can be selected.
Moreover, the vibration control system controls vibrations on the vertical axis for the optimal operation of the unloader, thus permitting an increase of smooth movements at high speeds and an increased stability at extraction time.

Energy Saving

Thanks to our Eco mode, you will be able to save up to the 25% of electricity consumption in case stand-by times exceed the set ones, with the temporary stop of the servo motor and the turning off of the pendant background light.
The automatic interruption of air supply to the vacuum generator allows a huge air consumption saving from the product collection with suction cup to its deposit on the conveyor.And there is more: speed and acceleration of the robot are automatically adjusted by conforming the operation cycle to the moulding time ensuring energy saving and noise and wear reduction.

XW-H Series top entry robots are the ideal solution when space in the moulding room is an issue. In fact, the crosswise axis on this series is parallel to the injection axis; therefore, the release of the products does not happen on the side of the IMM but at the end of it, saving thus space which would normally be needed by a traditional 3-axis robot. This series features the same characteristics of the XW Series with one main difference: the crosswise axis is usually longer (3500 – 5500 mm).

Star Automation has always been attentive to the changes of our time, and today in particular, we channel our Japanese mother company’s technology to answer to what the new regulations of Industry 4.0 require.
So we present to you our PCS520, a new generation software able to exchange information with the robot’s controller with the well-known aim of an efficient use. It is possible, via an Ethernet connection, to manage several instructions to the machine through the web, such modifications on the cycle time or axes strokes. PCS520 ability to remote-control the robot’s work conditions is also most important: through data collecting and system errors detecting, our tele-diagnostics system makes up an efficient tool for preventive maintenance.

Using each robot’s IP address, our technical assistance team can reach our customers’ controllers wherever they are, and guide the operator to the resolution of the problem, as well as directly intervene without leaving our headquarters
