Press Hardening: Feeder LR5-120 from Fagor Arrasate

The LR5-120 is a general use feeder with four degrees of movement, capable of transferring and positioning an element quickly and flexibly thanks to its 5 drives

Fagor Arrasate  has a long tradition of designing and executing automation systems that are applied to different forming processes. One of the systems that has proven to be most efficient in this area are so called Feeders or linear robots. Given such systems are for general use, the hot forming  development team, Hotteknik, has successfully implemented the latest model developed by Fagor Arrasate, the LR5-120, as a preferential option in high productivity hot forming installations.

In addition to three basic, direct drive, rack and pinion Cartesian axes, it also contains two coplanar rotation axes that enable an element to be rotated around the vertical with great flexibility
