Robo Copy M2
Automated high-speed duplication for mobile memory
The Robo CopyStation M2 is a further development of the first automated copying station worldwide Robo CopyStation M1, which was introduced at CeBIT 2005 in Hanover.
Robo CopyStation M2 convinces with high speed rates and its complete automation. The high throughput of more than one million memory cards per month guarantees a short return on investment.
The system will copy the identical data images to 48 cards simultaneously. Blank memory cards are fed into the system by so-called card trays via a transporting system. From there the cards are picked up, 24 at a time, by a cushion of suction pads and delivered to the copying unit. The systems can be adjusted to a wide range of tray types.
The Robo CopyStation is operated using a touch screen which is mounted on a swivel arm. An optional software tool is available from altec which encodes the data individually for each card during copying according to the card ID number. This technology can be used to ensure that a program or game can only be started from the original memory card. This provides an effective copy protection mechanism.
The currently achievable throughput depends on capacity and speed of the cards as well as on other factors as tray type etc. With 512 MB SD Cards, a throughput of 2000 cards per hour can be achieved.
