AAH Plastic's needs

AAH Plastics approached us with the need to develop, design and implement an assembly device directly into an injection moulding press to automate the assembly of metal bushings into a plastic part.

Our solution

● First of all, we had to study the control/control of the injection moulding press and its possibilities of interfacing with the implemented device and the robotic arm.

● Subsequently, we created a 3D design of the equipment for automated assembly of metal bushings and its location in the injection molding press area. We presented this concept to the client and after approval and comments, we manufactured and ordered the necessary equipment parts.

● We then assembled the whole device, programmed it and tested its functionality. Subsequently, after internal tuning, the equipment was implemented into the injection moulding machine at the customer's site.

We fine-tuned the workflow as needed and handed over the finished, fully functional machine to our client AAH Plastics. To ensure safety and smooth operation, we have trained the operators and maintenance of the new equipment.

Our expertise
