Injection Molding Robots

Injection Molding Robots: Robot tending and injection mold machines are a winning combination. Once liquid thermoplastic or thermosetting materials fill the mold and it sets, the finished part must be carefully removed from the machine. Robots have the dexterity to carry out this job with efficiency. 

Injection molding machines are able to run constantly when tended by robots. This leads to increased productivity and dependable cycle times. They are also able to maintain the same timing, placement, and efficiency without taking breaks or making mistakes.

Injection molding robots are ideal for carrying out related injection mold tending jobs, such as pretreating plastic and rubber parts, sonic and laser welding, as well as managing over-molding needs, which is the process of combining two materials (fabric and plastic for instance). 


Additional Injection Molding Information

RobotWorx robots are extremely versatile.  One robot can be used to man multiple injection molding machines, performing tasks such as loading, unloading, palletizing, stacking, lifting, etc. and can accomodate a variety of part sizes with ease. 

Injection molding robots have a relatively compact footprint and can be installed on tracks, tables, and overhead. Slim robotic arms are ideal for reaching in and out of mold machines to extract parts. 

RobotWorx integrates new and refurbished injection molding robots from MotomanFanuc and KUKA. We customize every injection molding robot to fit customer specifications. Customer training at our facility, phone support for the life of the system, and warranties that provide complete parts and service coverage are available with every robot.

RobotWorx can integrate an injection molding robot that will increase productivity, throughput, and revenue. Contact our sales department at 740-251-4312 for more injection molding information.

Long Reach Arc Welding Solution with ArcMate 120iL

Project Summary:
Thermoforming injection molding company required a welding solution with a long reach. RobotWorx built an affordable system complete with a reconditioned robot, new power source, and total safety environment.

Application Goals:

  • Weld Quality: The ArcMate 120iL provided consistent welding quality. Flexible and accurate, it help to increase throughput and cycle speed.
  • Work Envelope: Customer needed a large work envelope. The Fanuc ArcMate 120iL provided the right extension.
  • Safety: A complete safety system protects robot and operator from welding hazards: fumes, arc glare, heat, smoke, etc.
  • No Waste:  This automated long-reach welding system is so predictable and reliable it saves time, materials, and product.  

RobotWorx Solution Details:

Fanuc ArcMate 120iL RJ3 - Reconditioned 6-axis robot with 10kg payload capability and 1813mm of reach.

Lincoln PowerWave 455 STT- Reconditioned Lincoln 450 amp pulsing power source with air cooled welding torch, safety holder & wire feeder. 

Operator Station - Start A and B, E-stop, Servo-On, Hold, Re-Start.

Safety Package - Two sets of reconditioned light curtains with force guided relay. Physical ring cut from steel and mounted to the base of the robot.  Ring will allow robot controller to know what zone (A or B) the robot is in, therefore activating the appropriate set of light curtains.  Dual channel plunger switches push against the notched ring.  Table configuration will be needed prior to cutting rings.
