Injection moulding with a CoBot
Injection moulding using a CoBot can be carried out quickly and accurately. This particular application of a robot arm is highly suited to prototyping and short-run manufacturing.
Relieve injection-moulding machinery operators from physically demanding, repetitive work and eliminate the risk of injuries. The CoBot can be used across all areas of plastic and polymer production, including injection moulding applications. The robot arm can run most applications autonomously, allowing your business to handle moulding even when employees have gone home.
For added connectivity and flexibility, Euromap 67 (including the cable connection to the injection moulding machine) is an available option for all CoBots. With Euromap 67 you get user-friendly templates ensuring easy & fast programming as well as communication signals between the robot arm and injection-moulding machine.
Taking a robot out of its safety cage allows unmatched automation flexibility. If the robots come into contact with a person, our patented technology limits the forces at contact. The robot can also be programmed to operate in reduced mode when a person enters the robot’s work area and resume full speed when the person leaves.
It requires superhuman abilities to dose exactly the same quantity of a fluid constantly. However, the UR3 can maintain consistent pressure at all times. By deploying the robot, you can ensure uniform quality, reduce production costs and optimize your operation.
Easy programming and a short average set-up time make the CoBot ideal, especially for small-volume productions.
Moving the injection moulding robot to new processes is fast and easy, giving you the agility to automate almost any manual task, including those with small batches or fast changeovers. The robot is able to reuse programs for recurrent tasks.
All robot arms are certified IP-54. They will need protection when working in corrosive liquid environments.
