This machine is integrated with an Arburg Injection Moulding Machine and an Apex Robot to automatically remove the sprue from a pair of automotive mouldings and accurately apply a self-adhesive foam gasket. The part is now finished within the moulding cycle time and no further operations are needed.
This machine is integrated with a Bäckman Shot Peening Machine to automatically “Scragg” a pair of automotive springs. The machine can process up to 1200 springs per hour depending on length and with a force of up to 15Kn. The pre-stressing or “Scragging” improves the performance of the spring.
This machine automatically wraps a self-adhesive label around a cocktail stick to produce a marker flag. The flags can be produced at a rate of 2400 flags per hour with a high degree of accuracy.
This machine automatically applies a self-adhesive gasket to a range of plastic mouldings used in domestic & commercial electrical products. The mouldings have the gaskets applied in batches and then a second machine applies a range of fascias’ in different materials to customise the product.
This machine automatically folds an outer cover around a pack of business cards after stapling them together. Careful handling of the covers is required as they have a pre-applied adhesive tape attached. Light guards are incorporated for operator safety.
This machine automatically feeds and orientates plastic roof studs for the automotive industry at a rate of 30 parts per minute. The roof studs are separated and placed in a series of grippers on a servo slide. A bead of adhesive is applied to the base of each part and checked with a vision system. The studs are picked 6 at a time by a robot and transferred to the vehicle roof.
This system automatically produces staples from band made with 250 wires at speeds of up to 320 parts per minute. Working closely with our colleagues at Rudolf Grauer AG in Switzerland we have designed and manufactured a number of systems for the handling and packing of No 10, 24/6, 26/6 and similar staples. The No 10 machine can pack up to 4800 cartons of staples each containing 1000 staples per hour, running 24 hours per day.
We work closely with many leading suppliers in the automation industry and supply the Grimm range of sorting & feeding equipment through our sister company Unite Automation.
