Case Studies

 

1) Dramatic Productivity Improvements Achieved at ITW Envopak using Staubli RXplastics Robots (pdf)

Six axis robotics are increasingly being used in injection moulding shops, bringing more flexibility and additional functionality to automated demoulding. Using one robot to service two independent IMMs is rather unusual, but this is how security product specialists, ITW Envopak, have dramatically improved productivity at their main moulding facility in Seaham, near Sunderland.

2) Robots Transform Productivity at Small Injection Moulding Company (pdf)

Stäubli robots are increasingly being used in injection moulding shops; the ease of programming and flexibility of the robots is such that even in smaller companies six axis robots are now making a valuable and effective contribution to improved productivity.
