Fast and Precise – ROBOWORKER Automation Systems for Powder Presses

Highly flexible systems for any kind of pressed part

All our pick-and-place devices have one thing in common - the combination of speed, precision and reliability due to the use of special high-performance linear robots.

For different press types and customer requirements, we offer a range of efficient automation systems with seamless synchronization and rapid data exchange between press and automation system.

Our tray handling systems are capable of handling all types of sinter trays, whether round, square, with/without rim, flat or with relief.

A ROBOWORKER gripper picks up fast and precisely a part from a powder press

Calculation of the dynamic cleaning interval based on image processing systems

For quality control (e.g. measurement of dimensional accuracy) of the pressed parts and for process optimization (e.g. automatic, dynamic cleaning interval for the press punches), image processing modules can optionally be integrated into the automation systems. This proven ROBOWORKER technology was developed for the ROBOWORKER inspection machines and can also be adapted for use in press automation.

The ROBOWORKER gripper range with rotary, turning, tilting, single, double, multiple, multi-axis, vacuum, jaw, hole grippers, etc., in combination with the proven  software, which is continually being advanced in-house, ensures maximum flexibility from gripping in the press through all conceivable intermediate steps to placing onto the tray.

The machines are equipped with a 19" touch screen with new HMI. Operators can be trained in a very short time thanks to the intuitive design. New products are quickly created and stored on the machine via copy functions without any programming knowledge. This again significantly reduces setup times. Once stored, products are called up and started in seconds. The created products can also be transferred to other machines via interfaces.

Through constant advancements, we can ensure that the systems consistently meet the high requirements of our customers.

Intelligent Cleaning of Press Punches


Regardless of whether the press punches are to be cleaned frequently or only occasionally, ROBOWORKER has the right cleaning solution for both requirements.

The powder residues are brushed off or additionally blown off by compressed air nozzles in the punch cleaner.

The ROBOWORKER cleaning program module allows the user to use product-specific cleaning programs and to parameterize them via the software interface. There are various options for creating a cleaning program - automatically or manually.

While in the past only one upper and one lower punch had to be cleaned, the development of multi-axial press systems today requires extended cleaning. Therefore, ROBOWORKER has developed the multi-punch cleaning system. Each punch can be cleaned individually and at different intervals.

Flange-Mounted Punch Cleaner

  • At the gripper
  • For frequent cleaning processes


Separate Punch Cleaner

  • For occasional cleaning processes
  • Automatic change between gripper and punch cleaner via gripper station


Brush options

  • Cup brushes
  • Porcupine brushes
  • Paint brushes
  • etc.
