There are few complete technical sources of information available for plastic injection moulders to use relating to automation. This review has been compiled by researching and analysing technical references. It is intended to describe the basics of the technology and to explain how to put the technology to use. The review is supplemented by an indexed section containing several hundred abstracts from the Polymer Library.In addition, small machines allow for cost effective tooling, and low maintenance costs. ... with a special servo controller from GE Fanuc called Fanuc Power Mate H. Details are given of the five payload capacities, and the application software. ... ATM has supplied robots for post-moulding assembly operations at Thermos, a manufacturer of cool boxes, resulting in a 25% increase in the rate of production.
