Injectech Engineering LLC wants to lead an automation Revolution, with a programmable, beside-the-press platform for doing secondary operations.
Injectech of Torrington, Conn., developed the Revolution in response to industry demand for more flexible, multipurpose, cell-oriented downstream equipment. Injectech said the system, built around a high-torque rotary servo drive, is easy to use and flexible, so it can be set up quickly to run different injection molded parts, even short runs.
The automation system can be tied into a press-mounted robot or run as stand-alone equipment. Safety guarding covers the entire work area.
Modular stations include pneumatic pick-and-place robots to service parts feeders and remove finished product, robots that do product insertion and packaging, ultrasonic welding and heat staking, clamping and vision inspection.
Secondary operations that can be set up include labeling, assembly and packaging, inspection, cooling, parts staging and degating.
A personal-computer-based controller uses a Windows-based color touch screen to run the Revolution.
An optional Ethernet port and remote programming software allow Injectech to trouble-shoot and do programming.
The cost for a base unit is $30,000-$40,000, depending on the size and options. Lead times are eight to 10 weeks, although fully tooled and integrated systems will take longer.
