At NPE2018, Absolute Robot Inc. (ARI) takes its first step into IML with a side-entry system from Well-Lih in China, running a four-cavity PP yogurt-cup mold. According to ARI, its IML systems perform in the same league as industry-leading competitors, but at 20-30 percent lower price. ARI is offering both top-entry and side-entry IML systems suitable for overall cycle times down to 3 sec and with mold-open times as short as 1.8 sec. ARI can also handle larger products like 5-gal buckets, kitty-litter pails or candy bowls.

This IML demonstration is meant to show that ARI can handle complete turnkey systems with robot, EOAT, label magazine, height-adjustable frame, and options like vision and stacking parts either bottom-up or bottom-down.
