It’s a well-known fact that manufacturers who wish to offer competitive pricing and the best part quality must automate their production processes whenever possible. This is just as true for sheet metal fabricators and those doing mechanical assembly as it is for stamping houses and plastic injection molders.
In a typicalbob sports operation, parts must be extracted from reaching deep insidemoldingmachines. Secondary operations such as trimming and hole drilling are often required, and for parts whereinsert moldingis called for, machines may have to stop long enough to perform this task as well. It’s not only tedious and tiring work but can also have implications for cost and quality. Automated systems can eliminate human fatigue, reduce cycle times, and mitigate the risk of injury, making them a necessity in any manufacturing process.
Problems automation can solve
By automating, this same supplier could eliminate many of their cycle time variations. Mold cavity temperatures are now more consistent, so part quality levels increase. Load and unload times are also much faster, especially for those parts that require an insert or overmolding. And because robotic machine operators can reach much farther and more quickly without strain, multi-cavity molds are far more feasible. In this example, the manufacturer doubled the number of mold cavities and used just one operator for the three machines, assigning the other two to more important tasks. Everyone wins.
Find a manufacturer who can do both（行业专业知识和自动化）
Automated injection molding raises this bar even higher. The manufacturer must not only be an expert in molding and manufacturing practices but also understand how to use and program industrial robots. This can include complications like how to deal with side entry loading, pick and place robotic automation, or how to integratevision systems进入生产过程，以加快吞吐量，同时确保零件质量。
