Did you know that automation plays a big part at injection molding? The use of robots, conveyor systems or safety systems in injection molding processes is common practice and helps to run the production more efficiently and smoothly. Automated processes are more reliable and can guarantee more consistent part quality.

The trend towards increasing the degree of automation with the pre-treatment and post-treatment of feed parts and injection molded parts in parallel to the machine cycle can also result in minimizing the people working with the machine. The benefit, employees can focus on other things, rather than on repetitive, time-consuming ones.

  • Inserting
  • Removing
  • Sprue removal
  • Separating
  • Treating
  • Placing
  • Testing
  • Packing
  • Feeding
  • Processing

Like injection molding machines, different applications require different automation solutions:
