finger RG2 grip-
per in single and
dual versions to
the North Ameri-
can market. The
mounts on the arms of collaborative robots without any exter-
nal wires; this increases flexibility for robots that have infinite
rotation of the last joint.
The gripper can be programmed directly from the same interface as the robot and modified without previous programming experience. Angle mounting is 0 to 180 degrees in 30-de-

Functions added to
fiber laser system
Bystronic has introduced the newest
generation of the BySprint fiber laser cutting system, expanding the basic version
of the machine with an extended performance package and revamped design. It
features a larger operator touchscreen
panel and three additional functions.
Using a camera system on the cutting
bridge, the new Detection Eye function
recognizes the precise position of the
loaded metal sheet in just a few seconds, reducing setup time by up to 17
seconds with every sheet.
The Power Cut function enables fine
cutting of thicknesses up to 1.180 in. It
also allows cutting of brass up to 5/8 in.
thick, mild steel up to 1.0 in., and aluminum and stainless up to 1.180 in.
The Observer function, a camera-supported remote monitoring system,
enables operators to use web-enabled
devices to access information about the
laser’s production processes.
Membrane dryer o;ers
The WNA AMD-035 membrane dryer
from Walmec North America is designed
for compressed air applications that require ultraclean, ultradry air.
The dryer has a four-stage prefiltration that is critical to its longevity and
function. Flow rating is 35 SCFM, and
maximum working pressure is 150 PSI.
The first- and second-stage filters
remove moisture, liquids, dust, rust,
scale, and other contaminants to 5 microns. An automatic float drain under
the second-stage filter opens and expels
all collected liquids whenever an ounce
or more is present. It is fully automatic
with no continuous air loss.
The third and fourth stages remove
remaining particles down to 0.01 micron and absorb remaining moisture
and oil vapors.
