BMG (Beaverton, MI) announced the Mantis Robotic Trim Press Handler from NAS Nalle Automation Systems, a robotic automated system that handles the flow of parts ejected from any trim press.

This compact, intuitive and configurable system enables full automation of the entire thermoforming process — from resin to palletized product — for medium to high volume production lines using either non-servo continuous flow or servo-driven long eject trim presses.

Features include:

  • Trim Press Receiver (TPR) which uses a unique separating mechanism to count and contain stacks of product
  • Raking mechanism to take the product into the receiver for transfer by the robot
  • Six-axis robot equipped with product matching End of Arm Tooling that automatically transfers the product to a Shuttle Station
  • Compatibility with all trim presses

Incorporating the robot allows the Mantis system to be compact and configurable, making installation possible where the available floor space is limited or obstructed.
