PROTECTIVE ROBOT COVER AND ROBOT WRIST INSULATION
Published: September 12, 2016
Polish glass manufacturer producing different types of glass, such as technical, tempered, as well as coloured glass used in making signal lamps for trains, cars and ships.
The cover is made for a robot equipped with a steel extension arm that picks up a portion of molten glass. The temperature at the vat, which is around 500°C, causes the arm to heat up near the wrist. Now the arm is separated from the wrist with an EVO_shield insulating shield made of durable, highly heat-insulating ceramic. The shield greatly reduces heat transfer from the arm to the wrist. The robot is also exposed to glass splashes, dust and small amounts of steam. The EVO_mold protective cover is made of reflective material, therefore it can reflect up to 90% of heat radiation emitted by molten glass.
