Renmar Plastics Machinery Ltd, based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, has been appointed the UK distributor of TopStar Robotics.
TopStar is a China-based manufacturer of robotic solutions, including sprue pickers, cartesian three-axis and industrial multi-axis machines.
While Renmar will act as the distributor, installations will be carried out by AJ Robotics. The company will also offer service packages and spare parts.
All TopStar products are CE-compliant. Plus, there are a series of add-ons, including conveyors and guarding.
Commenting on the deal, Kevin Home, MD of Renmar Plastics Machinery, said: “To remain competitive, companies will need to make sure they achieve similar levels of automation to their European counterparts.”
Speaking about the partnership with AJ Robotics, he added: “[They] have years of experience in installing highly-complex six-axis and special-purpose machinery solutions, so will be able to ensure an automation cell is correctly specified and commissioned.”
TopStar was founded in Guangdong province in 2007. The company has three manufacturing sites, with a fourth due to come online.
