The Erowa Robot Compact 80 features a number of upgrades said to make it well-suited for tool- and moldmaking. Much like its predecessor, it offers a footprint smaller than 22 ft.2 and is able to load two machines simultaneously, but a noticeable improvement is a maximum transfer weight of 80 kg (176 lbs).

Another performance-boosting enhancement is the robot’s ability to accommodate the company’s 320 × 320-mm Universal Power Chuck (UPC) pallets. Depending on configuration, the robot can hold more than 300 palletized workpieces and as many as 11 different pallet sizes. An optional integrated loading station can be used for large and heavy workpieces without interrupting the robot’s automatic program sequence.

The robot also features a fast swivel axis on the transfer arm, which ensures that cooling liquid or dielectric fluid stays within the machining area.
