The Functional Insert-Moulded Subgroups Assembly Island is integrated in an automatic cycle with an injection moulding press, equipped with its own handling system for press loading/unloading. It automatically performs operations of handling, assembling, control, laser marking and final unloading of functional insert-moulded subgroups.
An anthropomorphic robot feeds the dedicated deposits with steel components to be inserted by the press handling system in the mould at a set high temperature.
At the end of the pressing process the line receives from the press handling system, into dedicated seats, the insert-moulded Products.
The robot, equipped with specially designed multiple picking hand, transfers the Products to a rotary table; in the table working stations the quality of the moulding is controlled (plastic wings presence), plastic safety rings and metal screws are automatically fed and inserted into the Products, the parts are laser marked, identified with Datamatrix reading and finally unloaded into a motorized belt.
NOK parts are unloaded separately in proper boxes.
