Robots on the Rise at HGR

HGR has robots and robot arms galore. Small robotic arms for intricate details and giant robotic arms with attachments to make good ole’ Ripley jealous. Not an Aliens fan, it’s ok. You don’t have to be to see that HGR can save you money by offering you used machinery as an option.

For decades human arms did the majority of factory work, but now robotic arms are doing some of the same jobs, but at a higher efficiency rate. In a lot of ways, they work like a human arm would and are usually made up of 4-6 joints for movement. The components are designed to mimic the wrist, forearm, elbow, and shoulder. They are able to work at a higher speed and do things that human arms would not be able to with great precision and accuracy.

Robotic arms have a few different applications they are used for. Some arms have welding attachments on them and sit on a production line all day. For safety reasons, robotic arms have been deployed for material removal in areas and with matter that may be toxic to humans. Another application would be in the material handling field.

HGR has many of these robots available here and from different manufacturers like Fanuc, ABB, Hirata, and more.

Here are a few Robots HGR currently have in stock.

Terminal Tractor/Switch Truck

Terminal Tractor

A terminal tractor is a semi-tractor used in moving trailers in a warehouse facility or cargo yard. Very similar to how a switcher locomotive would be used to move railcars. Some differences in a tractor built for hauling on the road and a terminal tractor are listed below.

  • It is made for a single operator in an offset cab.
  • Terminal tractors have a shorter shell base and a solid-mounted rear axel.
  • They may typically have an automatic engine and even use of alternate fuel, depending on the make.
  • 360-degree view in the windshield and is used for facilitating five to six moves an hour.

Not all tractors have these options, including this one at HGR, but this can more help you to identify the use of the product and the reasoning behind it.

Mimaki Ultraviolet Printer



Printer for Sale at HGR

Ultraviolet printers use the rays it produces to dry or cure the ink as it is printed. This prevents smearing or other damages caused by ink not being cured before handling. The ultra violet rays dry the ink instantly allowing large prints to be handled right after printing. This can decrease the time a customer is waiting to get the prints in their hands. This model can also print directly to plastics, metal, wood, and glass onto materials up to 28” wide, 20” long and 6” thick.
