INJECTION MOLDING AT NPE: Presses, Robots & Cell Automation
Everything molders need to compete in markets from automotive to medical was on display in Orlando. Besides a huge number of new machine models, there was emphasis on cell integration and automation.
INJECTION MOLDING: New Robots & Teach Pendant
Servo robots for low overhead and modest cost.
INJECTION MOLDING AT NPE: Molding Exhibits Show Off Cell Integration with Multiple Processes & Operations
If you’re interested in lightweight composites, IML, LSR, multi-shot, inmold assembly, barrier coinjection, micromolding, variotherm molding, foams, energy-saving presses, robots, hot runners, and tooling—they’re all here in force.
Custom Structural Foam: A Small But Thriving Niche
How to succeed in the small but busy world of custom structural foam? Maximize your pounds per hour and use robots.
On-Site: Progressive Injection Molder Pioneers in Thermoforming IML
When you’re a successful injection molder with more than 40 years under your belt and more than 50 presses producing 1.8 billion containers and lids for food-packaging containers annually, what do you do when you feel the time is right to expand?
Servo Robots Show More Speed, Muscle & Brains
The recent NPE 2009 show in Chicago saw the debut of dozens of new and enhanced robots for injection molding. The vast majority of the new models were all-servo types, though some economized by mixing servo and pneumatic axes. These new robots emphasized higher speeds, heavier payload capacity, longer reach, and more intelligent controllers that make programming and troubleshooting easier than ever. Telescoping arms and dual arms were very common among the new entries, as well.
NPE News in Injection Molding
If a better machine can help your company beat challenging economic conditions, you’ll probably find it at NPE. And finding it will be easier, thanks to our editors’ efforts to sift out of some 2000 exhibits the most significant news in injection and blow molding, extrusion, compounding, and thermoforming.
Modular ‘Adaptable Automation’ Makes IML More Economical
Five years ago, in-mold labeling was just gaining traction among North American injection molders as a one-step approach to decorating without secondary operations.
Robot Has 360o Wrist
A new beam-mounted, fi ve-axis servo robot has a dual servo wrist designed for part reorientation and degating operations.
New Robots and Wrist Options
At NPE in Chicago, a six-axis robot powered by the company's standard color touchscreen, fully teachable control was introduced by Ranger Automation Systems, Inc., Shrewsbury, Mass.
New Crowd of Servo Robots Debuts At Two Recent Shows
The vast majority of new robots introduced at two recent trade shows were all-servo models tailored for speed and precision.
From NPE 2000: Where Robots Are Headed
If the big show in Chicago was any indicator, linear servo drives and jointed-arm designs may be the next trends in robots for injection molding.Injection molders visiting NPE 2000 last June may have glimpsed the future of injection molding automation.
NPE News Wrap-up: Robots
From micro to maxi, from simple sprue pickers to sophisticated six-axis models, NPE had it all. A raft of new robots, faster and smarter than ever, will help make automation an irresistible choice for U.S. molders.
