To withstand the high-speed oscillatory movements used by the robots, SIG introduces special mineral castings that consist of a mix of minerals and bonding materials based on epoxy resins. With vibration damping up to 15 times that of steel or gray cast iron, the robot is now much more flexible, allowing column-type suspension to be developed.
The SIG Delta Robot from SIG Pack Systems has a common modular design incorporating both the robot and controls, resulting in minimal space requirements.
