capabilities. By dramatically augmenting the functionality of E67 and evolving Euromap protocols (E79, E81), Sepro's Easy Package not only enables and simpli- fies the integration and control of injec- tion machines and robots, but also of complete production systems—like KHG's twin production cells. "In our opinion, the ease of inte- gration is the big advantage of Sepro's portfolio," said KHG's Karrenberg. By leveraging Sepro's integration capailities through trusted vendors, KHG obtained two production cells that deliver more elegant, powerful, and cost-efficient results, with less programming and integration effort, than the more sophisti- cated systems that they first considered. Because both Sepro robots and the Visual control are designed around the needs of injection molders, initial programming, operation, and integration of multiple elements is said to be far easier, as is asset redeployment when future needs demand production changes. leveraging the capabilities of Sepro's Visual 3 control. Sepro's latest improvement in integration, a feature set called Easy Package, encom- passes not only the injection press/robot interoperability functions in Euromap 67, but adds a range of additional synchronization, control, monitoring, and data-exchange The Visual 3, the most advanced in Sepro's family of controls developed especially for injection molding, controls all robots and peripheral equipment, synchronizing with the molding machines. The Sepro Success 11 positions empty trays for filling by the Success 7. It also removes filled left- and right-hand trays and positions them for removal by an operator.
