The automation and robotization of the injection workshops require the use of end-of-arm tools (grippers or robot hands) adapted to your product and to your production environment (products, injection machines, robots, conveyor etc.). Used in different fields and industries they allow to seize parts in order to carry out different handling and thus to gain in quality and cadence.
Functioning and importance of the end-of-arm tooling
The gripping hand will be designed according to your environment, processes and types of parts to be injected. It will be specifically assembled to integrate to the arm of your robot. The latter is programmed according to the needs of your productions. Equipped with suction cups and different kinds of pliers the robot hand will come to seize the part.
For example when injected out of the mold in order to transfer it to the next operation. In the case of overmolding the accuracy of the tool is even more important as the hand will position the insert directly into the mold.
End-of-arm tooling: application examples
End-of-arm tooling and plastic overmolding
It enables seizing the injected finished parts and the positioning of a plastic insert for the next injection cycle.
Load and pick-up table
Load table and plastic inserts to overmold, it works with the above end-of-arm. It allows receiving 8 moldings distributed on two levels. The loading of the inserts is possible in hidden time by an operator.
Sprue cutting et diameter drilling
This robot hand allows seizing the part from the mold, cutting sprue and drilling a diameter on a gauge at the location of the injection spot.
