We have almost finished installing two 450 tonne injection moulding machines with integrated gantry robots that are the core of an automated cell.
One of the machines will mold a rigid part which will be unloaded from the mold by the robot. It will move by conveyor to the second machine where it will be loaded into a mold by robot, over molded with a soft plastic, removed by robot and loaded into a laser marking machine.
Before being unloaded from the laser marking machine the quality of the marking will be inspected by a vision checking system then moved to another conveyor where a person will apply a label, assemble of couple of additional parts, do a quick check then pack the parts for delivery to our customer.
Two injection moulding processes and laser marking with only one operator allows us to be competitive in a global market.
