3-Axis Robots are used for automation on horizontal plastic injection molding machines (top entry applications) and operations requiring higher speed.  3-Axis robots can be used for part picking, in-mold decorating (IMD) and in-mold labeling (IML), insert loading, stacking, palletizing and inspection.  3-Axis robots are simple to operate and maintain and minimize energy consumption.   3-Axis robots are redeployable on various types and sizes of plastic injection molding machines within the robots payload and strength.  Robotic Automation Systems integrates both Hahn Automation (GHS Automation / Geiger Handling) and Wittmann 3-Axis robots.

 

 

 

6-Axis Robots are used for flexible automation on both horizontal and vertical plastic injection molding machines increasing flexibility for upstream and downstream operations and allowing utilization of a larger working envelope.  They are also employed when there are floor space or ceiling height constraints.  Robotic Automation Systems integrates both ABB Robotics and Staubli Robotics 6-Axis robots.

 

 

 

SCARA Robots (Selective Compliant Assembly Robot Arm) provide a circular work envelope with broad range of movement, allowing for added flexibility.  SCARA robots have a small footprint and can be built on a smaller scale.  SCARA robots are typically employed for loading and unloading vertical injection molding machines, or to present a complement of inserts upstream of a 3-Axis or 6-Axis robot.   Epson SCARA robots offer high speed, heavy payload, high precision, large work envelopes and fully integrated options.  SCARA robots can be used for assembly in high tolerance applications.  Robotic Automation Systems integrates both Epson Robots and Yamaha Robotics SCARA Robots.  

 

 

 

 

Side Entry Robots are single axis robots dedicated to a specific application.  They offer extreme high speed for applications such as placing decorations / labels for in-mold decorating (IMD) / in-mold labeling (IML) and part removal.  Robotic Automation Systems integrates both Hahn Automation (GHS Automation / Geiger Handling) and Wittmann Side Entry Robots.

 

 

 

Servo Sprue Pickers are simple pick-and-place robotic devices used for sprue removal or part and runner separation in plastic injection molding automation.  Servo sprue pickers range in size to fit 15 to 300 ton plastic injection molding machines.  The X and Y axis, and A rotation, are all servo driven for maximum flexibility and programmability.  All adjustments are made from a hand held pendant for ease of use while maintaining infinite positioning.  Servo sprue pickers allow for pre-staging above the mold, which minimizes action time in and out of the mold.  They are flexible allowing for deposit on both sides of the injection molding machine – runners out on one side and parts out on the other. Robotic Automation Systems integrates Hahn Automation (GHS Automation / Geiger Handling) servo sprue pickers.
