Shell-O-Matic-type robots have been designed specifically for the shell-building process and are especially suited for heavy loads, up to 1500 lbs / 675 kg.

Before the era of the articulated robot, Shell-O-Matic was the first to introduce electrically driven robots in the investment casting industry back in 1973. These robots were designed and built by Shell-O-Matic specifically for the industry needs.

This design has now evolved for more than 40 years and has proven its benefits to our clients with over 250 robots installed so far all over the globe. Those robots are still selected by our clients today due to their ease of maintenance, simplicity and reliability. Furthermore, their construction is perfectly suited for heavy weight lifting capacity where they are more cost effective than articulated robots.

  • 3 robot models respectively suited for 205 Kg, 365 Kg and 680 Kg.
  • Embedded Shell-O-Matic traverse axis with length design to suit your process complexity.
