Injection Molding Robots

Indus­tri­al robots tend­ing injec­tion mold­ing machines is 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). They also 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.

Robots​.com 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 accom­mo­date a vari­ety of part sizes with ease. 

Robots​.com offers new and refur­bished injec­tion mold­ing robots made by Motoman, Fanuc, ABB and KUKA.
