Foundry Robotics & Automation
Heavy Duty Robotics Solutions for Hostile Environments
Cutting Costs, Improving QualityOur heavy-duty foundry robots can handle payloads of up to 1,500 kg and feature ultra high-torque wrists that effectively, safely manipulate bulky payloads at every step of the manufacturing process. Kawasaki robots use an advanced link design to eliminate the need for an unwieldy counterweight that reduces turning radiuses and shrinks side-to-side clearance. These heat-resistant pieces of equipment can operate in hostile environments while executing delicate handling of molds, casting extraction operations, core assembly and setting, ladling of molten and cooling metal, and additional material removal tasks such as deburring, grinding and polishing. Thanks to flexible positioning capabilities and responsive software programming, these machines can easily be redeployed to handle changing production objectives.
Foundry operators contend with hostile working environments and increasingly competitive global markets, leaving little room for error. Kawasaki Robotics’ foundry automation solutions offer uncompromising performance without sacrificing efficiency, product quality or worker safety.
