The I and J Fisnar 2000 series robots from INTERTRONICS combine low footprint with rugged build, enabling assembly to be carried out on a 24 h basis in the maximum possible working area on the benchtop (see Plate 3).

The robots automate a wide number of processes including industrial sealing, gasketing, dispensing, potting, filling, as well as sampling and vial filling in the laboratory.

Simple to set up and use with easy step-by- step instructions, the robots provide up to 100 programs with 6,000 data points. Performance is quiet and continuous, with 10 microns repeatable accuracy.

Working areas range from 203 mm to 406 mm depending on the model. Three and four axis designs are available, each with continuous path (CP) and point-to-point (PTP) operations. Interpolation is in all axes.

Each robot is supplied with a basic tooling plate and dispensing fixture.
