Assembly Automation for Plastic Molding
Robotic Automation Systems expertise includes automation of assembly operations and turnkey automated assembly cells employed in plastic injection molding, insert molding and overmolding manufacturing processes.
Robotic Automation Systems automated assembly cells offer flexible, redeployable assembly and are custom designed and built for your specific application.
Automated assembly cells can include upstream pre-staging of parts, on-line or off-line assembly and downstream assembly operations.
Assembly Cell - Vision Inspection
Flexible redeployable custom turnkey assembly automation cell with vision inspection using an Epson SCARA robot in a plastic injection molding application
Turnkey Assembly Automation Cell
Automated turnkey assembly cell with hot stamping (tipping), vision inspection and downstream off-loading of plastic injection molded parts
Insert Molding Automated Assembly
Assembly automation cell for insert loading of bowl fed metal stamping inserts pre-staged at cavity centers and loaded for plastic insert molding using an ABB 6-axis robot with molded parts unloaded and presented to a camera for vision inspection verification

Robotic Automation Systems uses both 6-Axis robots (articulated robots) and 4-axis SCARA robots depending on the automoted assembly application. In some cases both 6-axis and 4-axis SCARA robots are employed within the same assembly automation work cell.
6-axis robots (articulated robots) offer more versatility and a wider range of motion within their working envelope.
4-axis SCARA robots offer higher speed and are accurate and repeatable within microns.
Robotic Automation Systems automated assembly cells include complete installation, training, and ongoing support, as well as PLC programs and human machine interface (HMI) custom designed to control the assembly cell and interface with your operation.
