Robots are becoming increasingly common in injection molding facilities . They offer a number of advantages over human operators, including:

  • Increased productivity: Robots can operate 24/7 without breaks, which can significantly increase production output.
  • Improved quality: Robots are very precise and can handle parts consistently, which can help to reduce defects.
  • Enhanced safety: Robots can handle hot or hazardous materials, which can help to improve safety for human workers.
  • Reduced labor costs: While there is an initial investment in purchasing a robot, the long-term labor costs can be significantly reduced.

There are a number of different types of robots that can be used in injection molding, including:

  • Cartesian robots: These robots have three linear axes of movement, which makes them well-suited for simple pick-and-place applications.
  • Scara robots: These robots have a selective compliance articulated robot arm (SCARA) design, which gives them a wider range of motion than cartesian robots.
  • Six-axis robots: These robots have six axes of movement, which makes them the most versatile type of robot. They can be used for a wide range of applications, including part removal, insertion, and secondary processing.

The best type of robot for a particular application will depend on the specific needs of the manufacturer. Factors to consider include the size and weight of the parts, the complexity of the mold, and the required cycle time.

Sprue pickers – SP-FVI series

Sprue pickers are fast during extraction operations (lower than 0.8 sec on average) and only require a low-cost investment; they represent the first approach to the automation of an IMM.

They can separate the moulded part from its sprue and they can also be equipped with a vacuum generator, which allows to take the moulded part properly.

Reliable and user-friendly

The possibility to regulate the arm’s rotation angle allows to easily cross over the IMM safety protections and extract sprues. The release side can be easily modified according to the customer’s specific needs.
Moreover, the integrated sprue presence sensor on the sprue gripper guarantees the correct extraction.
