 Santinelli’s new AES-2200 system will more than double the standard throughput of its previous robotic finishing offerings in a small, compact footprint.
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.—Santinelli International is introducing the AES-2200, a high volume and high production platform with a compact footprint that the company said will more than double the standard throughput of its previous robotic finishing offerings.

“The AES-2200 system provides “the best jobs-per-square-foot ratio ever introduced,” said Gerard Santinelli, company president and CEO. The AES-2200 incorporates two of the company’s new “24/7” industrial edger units, the SE-9090 Supra, introducing in-chamber grooving and customizable shelf beveling capabilities. Additionally, the high-base curve edging and custom beveling capabilities of the company’s previous industrial model (the SE-9090 Express+) are incorporated into the AES-2200, as is the unit’s robust, dual-spindle wheel configuration.

The robotic system utilizes a unique hybrid design combination of conveyer belt and a dynamic tray-lifting mechanism that eliminates job “bottle necking” and allows four jobs to be in a processing stage continually. Moreover, the intelligent synchronization of the system is capable of bypassing any problematic job tray, while keeping the other edger units operating at full efficiency. New, lightweight “dual robotic arms” reduce lens transport time from tray to chuck by over 50 percent.
