I've got a question about robots for Injection Molding Machines. Do you have to buy a robot specifically "designed" for IMM (like a Yushin or a Sepro etc.) or would any articulated (e.g. a Epson) or any Cartesian robot be ok? When do you choose articulated vs. Cartesian robot, and vice-versa? Conversely, is a robot for IMM useful for any other application? Thank you for your time !

Whats are the future trends that are expected to affect robots in assembly lines over the next 5 - 10 years?Are there any up and coming "game changers" . I am interested in knowing about safety technologies which would allow a cell footprint to be smaller, new applications or significant improvements to existing technologies. How do you see integration/programming of robots in assembly cell changing over the next few years?
