3-Axis Robots are used for insert molding automation on horizontal plastic injection molding machines (top entry applications) and operations requiring higher speed

6-Axis Robots are used for flexible automation in both horizontal and vertical plastic injection molding machines to increase flexibility for upstream and downstream operations and allow utilization of a larger working envelope. They are also employed when there are floor space or ceiling height constraints.

SCARA Robots are for insert loading and unloading automation on vertical plastic injection molding machines. They are also employed to present a complement of inserts upstream of a 3-axis or 6-axis robot.
