Robotic Automation Systems employs 3-axis robots, also known as top entry robots, for plastic molding automation on horizontal plastic injection molding machines (top entry applications) and operations requiring higher speeds.
Typical plastic molding automation applications for top entry 3-axis robots include:
Top entry robots or 3-axis robots (also known as linear robots, Cartesian robots, gantry robots or beam robots), are the workhorses of plastic injection molding automation.
They have a vertical Y axis to reach into the space between the molds; an Z axis defined by the horizontal beam to reach from an area above the mold to a point outside the machine; and a X axis that moves the vertical arm in-line with the injection molding machine to strip parts off the mold or position them outside the molding area.
3-axis robots (top entry robots) are simple to operate and maintain, and minimize energy consumption. They are also easily redeployed for automation applications on various types and sizes of plastic injection molding machines within the robot's payload and strength.
