Injection Molding Robots Promise Improved Productivity

Jul 23, 2013

​Injection molding inserts certain materials into a mold. It is typically a liquid thermoplastic or thermo-setting in which they have to be removed after they are set. A robot offers the perfect solution for the parts that need extra precision or care; they also provide increased speeds and efficiency.


Injec­tion mold­ing is a man­u­fac­tur­ing process in which mate­r­i­al is insert­ed into a mold. Usu­al­ly liq­uid ther­mo­plas­tic or ther­mo-set­ting mate­ri­als are used to fill a mold, and after they set in the mold, the fin­ished part must be removed from the injec­tion mold­ing machine. Since some parts can be large or unwieldy for a human to han­dle, a robot pro­vides the per­fect solu­tion to removal issues. They remove the part from the machine with more effi­cien­cy and speed than a human coun­ter­part could.

Injec­tion mold­ing robots are ide­al for many appli­ca­tions like mate­r­i­al han­dling, dis­pens­ing, machine load­ing, and machine tend­ing, and per­form their duties with quick, accu­rate move­ments. Injec­tion mold tend­ing jobs such as pre­treat­ing plas­tic and rub­ber parts, laser weld­ing, and com­bin­ing mate­ri­als become sim­ple, flu­id process­es when automated.

Fur­ther, injec­tion mold­ing machines can run around the clock when they are tend­ed by robots. Robots do not need to take breaks or spend time deduc­ing how to best remove a part, nor do they vary in their tim­ing and place­ment of parts. Obvi­ous­ly, pro­duc­tion rates are increased and cycle times are more depend­able when robots are at the helm of an injec­tion mold­ing machine.

HYRo­bot­ics is a com­pa­ny that spe­cial­izes in design­ing injec­tion mold­ing robots for a vari­ety of needs. Their prod­ucts range from sprue and part removal robots to auto­mat­ed insert mold­ing, to de-gat­ing and in-mold label­ing, to parts stack­ing. Pro­duc­tiv­i­ty is a promise: cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion is max­i­mized as the man­u­fac­tur­ing val­ue is increased.

If pro­duc­tiv­i­ty is the end goal, injec­tion mold­ing robots are an avenue to suc­cess. Robots​.com car­ries a wide vari­ety of injec­tion mold­ing robots. To learn more about which one would be right for your facil­i­ty, con­tact Robots​.com here or call 8777626881.
