DSM Engineering Materials will be exhibiting at IREX 2022, March 9-12, and showcasing a one-stop shop of high-performance polymer solutions to help solve the challenges the next-gen industrial collaboration robot manufacturers are facing. DSM’s thermoplastics are ideal for injection molding processes used to produce parts that ensure cobots are more cost-effective, lighter, safer, faster and more energy efficient. DSM’s portfolio of material solutions is ideal for producing structural supports, gear drives, e-motors, sensors, connectors, cable jackets, grippers and more. DSM’s support in plastic part design, prototype testing and validation and the optimization of mass part manufacturing ensures the shortest possible time to market.
Manufacturers that want to make cobots safer for human collaboration and enable devices to operate faster by improving actuation energy efficiency need to look no further than DSM Engineering Materials’ thermoplastics. DSM‘s material solutions are specially engineered to replace metal without compromising the mechanical performance of end-parts. With their high flow and outstanding processing capabilities, advanced thermoplastic materials are optimized for injection molding processes that allow weight reduction of parts by 20 to 30%
Manufacturers attending the International Robot Exhibition (IREX) 2022, March 9-12, at Tokyo Big Sight East, can visit DSM’s booth, located at E1-13@East Hall 1, and experience a one-stop shop of high-performance polymer solutions. DSM’s booth will showcase:
Masaki Kakizawa, Application Development Manager at DSM, will present a seminar on Friday, March 11, from 13:30-14:10 (JST) about how advanced materials can lightweight and make safer cobots.
Investing in materials that are not well-suited to design specifications or production processes can lead to additional design cycles that result in financial losses and product launch delays. DSM can find the materials best suited for cobot application needs, and its portfolio of material solutions is ideal for producing structural supports, gear drives, e-motors, sensors, connectors, cable jackets, grippers, and more.
Cobot manufacturers that offer more eco-friendly solutions stand to gain a significant competitive advantage because product sustainability increasingly drives purchasing decisions. DSM Engineering Materials has committed to developing and rolling out bio- and/or recycled-based equivalents for its entire portfolio by 2030; specific grades are already available for all major product lines.
