FANUC will show live demonstrations of its automation and robotic equipment
Showcasing some of its robotics automation processes for turnkey solutions and integration in the plastics industry, FANUC will demonstrate live equipment for visitors at Interplas 2014.
The company is set to display its S150iA injection moulding machine running a 16-cavity medical toothed rod mould supplied by KEBO. The polymer used in this demonstration is POM and the cycle time is seven seconds. The installation, featuring Motan Polymer handling equipment, will also be fitted with an EFI hot runner controller and Moldflow water manifold system; monitoring both flow and temperature of the mould cooling.
The installation will showcase components being removed from the mould by the new FANUC CR10 Cartesian robot, dropped onto a conveyor supplied by Hi-Tech Automation Ltd. The components will then be picked at random and dropped into an inspection chute for quality control, sorted and placed into bags on a carousel by a FANUC LRMate six-axis robot using Visual Line Tracking.
On FANUC’s 3PA stand, an S100iA injection moulding machine will be running a two component mould with a second injection unit and rotary turntable for the moving half of the mould supplied by Plasdan. The rotary turntable will be controlled by a FANUC servo drive integrated into the main control system of the machine to give full control and position stability of the turntable movement and position.
