In the injection molding industry a robot is an automation tool that, once programmed, can perform a number of complex and necessary tasks that are typically carried out by operators. Addition of a robot in an injection molding process brings about a number of advantages including minimized operator involvement, reduced human error, faster processing times, improved safety, repeatability and consistency, and cost saving.
Recent developments of automation robots in the plastics industry have caused many in the injection molding industry to consider robots a necessary addition to their production lines. In some processes, such as in-mold labelling where a label has to be placed inside the mould at each cycle prior to mould closure addition of a robot to the production line is mandatory as robots are currently the only method available to preform these complicated tasks.
