PLASTIC INJECTION MOLDING

COBOTS IN PLASTIC MOLDING

Plastic molding is an essential part of factory work. With pressing deadlines and workers often strained on multiple jobs at once, a collaborative robot like OB7 can be implemented into the production process to optimize quality and productivity.

Collaborative robots in plastic molding production processes offer an ideal solution to these issues. Incorporating cobots into the plastic molding process frees up operators from doing repetitive mundane tasks, and allows them to do other complex work. 

A collaborative robot can fulfill tasks in a plastic injection molding process such as:

  • Packaging and palletizing process

  • Bagging products

  • Product Assembly 

  • Facilitating inspection and QC 

  • Adhesive dispensing 

Implementing a collaborative robot like OB7 into a plastic molding application process offers benefits of simple set up, ease of use, and safety of working directly alongside personnel.

THE BENEFITS OF OB7 COLLABORATIVE ROBOT IN THE PLASTICS INDUSTRY

 

Collaborative robots from Productive Robotics offer the most flexible arms with seven axes of movement, whereas most other robots only offer five- or six-axes movement. In addition, the gripper or end of arm tooling can easily be switched to suit the specific application or product.
 

Key benefits of implementing cobots:

  • Enables 24/7 "lights out" operation across three shifts, increasing production output. 

  • Provides exceptional accuracy and repeatability, reducing errors and increasing quality.

  • Eliminates the need for breaks, downtime, or sick days, allowing for continuous operation and reduced labor costs.

Game-changing solution with OB7 cobots for plastic molding automation:

  • Zero programming: OB7 can be taught by anyone on your staff. Simply "teach" OB7 a task and it learns.

  • Simple set-up: OB7 can be setup in under an hour.

  • Seven-axis movement: OB7 provides unparalleled flexibility of movement compared to most other cobots that offer only six axes.

  • Seamlessly move from one job to another: With a wheeled base, small footprint, and fast and easy integration with existing processes in your facility, OB7 can be seamlessly rolled into your production and move between machines.
