3-Axis Robots for Plastic Molding Automation
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
Typical plastic molding automation applications for top entry 3-axis robots include:
- Part picking and handling automation
- Insert loading automation
- In-mold decorating (IMD)/In-mold labeling (IML) automation
- Sorting and stacking automation
- Packaging and palletizing automation
- Inspection automation
About Top Entry Robots
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.
3-Axis Robot Integration
Robotic Automation Systems employs WEMO Robots 3-axis robots (top entry robots) in our turnkey plastic injection molding automation solutions. In addition, we’ve integrated plastic injection molding automation with 3-axis robots from the following robot manufacturers.
- WEMO Robots
- HAHN Automation
- Star Automation
- Yushin Automation
- Ranger Automation
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.
