In the plastics industry, material removal robots are needed to get rid of unsightly edges that are left over during the molding process. KUKA removal robots are used for several of these removal applications.
One plastics industry manufacturing using KUKA robotic removal makes plastic toboggans and child seats. KUKA stated that once the work piece comes out of the blow molding process, there are plenty of burs on the edges that need to be smoothed and evened out.
Deburring, one of the many KUKA removal robotic applications, has to be applied to these pieces to make them uniform. Without this KUKA removal process, other pieces that have to be fit into the seat or toboggan may not fit, which could cause damage to the entire product.
Uniformity is important for plastic pieces, which is why many plastics industry manufacturers turn to KUKA removal robot systems. These robots provide consistency and speed that aren’t achievable through manual applications.
These removal robots from KUKA are highly flexible. They can perform several different removal processes like deburring, drilling and cutting with just a simple change to their end-of-arm-tooling. This means that one robot can do the job of several machines or different work stations on the line, cutting down on equipment costs for manufacturers.
