Rieter Offers Four Robots On R 40

Rieter OffersFour Robots On R 40Switzerland-based Rieter Spun Yarn Systems now offers four high-speed robots on its R 40 rotor spinning machine, which uses state-of-the-art precision control technology and has a modular structure. These two factors allow the robots to perform functions in parallel. The company says the use of four robots considerably improves overall efficiency of the machine because start-up time is reduced by half compared with machines that have only two robots. The time savings translates into increased output.Rieter also offers a new operating concept on the R 40 with two robots. Using the control systems touch screen, the machine operator can now define the working zones of the robots as required. Zones can overlap, and the two robots can operate on one side of the R 40.
