Robotic Trim Press Handler

Revolutionary Robotic Trim Press Handler

The Mantis™ robotic trim press handling system is the next generation in thermoformed product handling. Compatible with all trim presses but specifically designed for both non-servo- and long-eject models. This compact and configurable system fits within your facility and interfaces with any trim press make or model. Product containment throughout the process dramatically reduces jams and product loss.

Highlights include: compact trim press receiver (TPR) – patent pending, VeriTool™ RFID tool verification – patent pending, no product contamination, simple intuitive controls, product isolation and reject through HMI, plus quick and easy changeover.

Reduced downtime. Faster changeover. Mantis – Run With Confidence.
