6 Axis Robotic Insert Molding



enProducts™  recently successfully completed 6 Axis Industrial robotic insert molding project with STAUBLI robotics. We were engaged in this project   from concept design, Robotic model selection, Claw module design, Manufacturing and integration. This project handled 44 small components handling, 2 finished parts including runner in 60 seconds.

Project Outline. 




enProducts™ team worked closely with clients engineers and have tremendous effort to understand and align with clients requirement at each stage starting from concept design to the final fine tune adjustments and improvements. Our CAD engineers has associated with enCAD Team to build the most accurate and adaptable design. Team has carried out


Critical part evolved to be a complex turret design for the claw design. Accuracy was the major criteria for manufacturing claw module and gripper module keeping the weight of claw module to be less than 18 kg. Robot nominal load carrying capacity was 28 Kg. To operate in high speed with 25 micron repeatability all the parts where made by CNC process to ensure exactness with the 3d model. Using the most advanced CNC 5th axis machining with high accuracy EDM process make the overall calw module exactly perform the result as per design.

Pneumatics and integration.

Specifically designed and configured pneumatic actuators and grippers made positive gripping of all smaller components and ensure the reliability in gripping. Suction modules and vacuum generator modules selected according to the part weight. In addition to this, a built in referencing rod with feedback and suction holding has provided user friendliness in referencing Mold with the robot. All pneumatic

Controller integration/ Programming.

Controller has integrated with a Siemens PLC control panel with 32 I/O with Staubli controller, Euromap, Emergency, safety switches, molding machine as per schematics. Our electronic engineers closely worked with Staubli team for robot programming.
