Solutions and applications for the plastics industry

To remain competitive and conquer new markets, plastics processors design and manufacture products with a high added value. They are increasingly integrating automated operations during the press cycle time and seeking to reduce mould change times. Compatible with clean environments and offering simple, easy and compact integration, the Stäubli range of 4 and 6-axis robotic arms is specially designed for the plastics industry. Our robots thus play a role in increasing the added value of the product.

Features and benefits
  • Flexibility
    Simply re-program the robot when the mold changes, and fully utilize the machine’s capacity by grouping various molds together. Our plastics robots can easily be integrated and moved to other injection molding machines (IMMs). New molds or processes are easily accommodated by our extensive plastics range.
     
  • Speed
    Stäubli plastics robots are the fastest 6-axis robots on the market in terms of speed and acceleration (for example, 0.8 second demold time inside a 4-second cycle).
     
  • Cleanliness
    Class 100 comes standard.
     
  • Fulfill plastics industry requirements
    The robots are available ready to use with pre-wired Euromap (Europe) or SPI (USA) hardware and safety interlock, along with dedicated industry interface.
