20.08.2010 | New automation cell for plastic inserts at ENGESER

Another milestone has been reached in the rapidly growing “technical plastic parts” business area. The manual insertion of metal contact pins into injection-moulding tools has been automated so that a plastic housing with overmoulded contact pins can now be produced fully automatically.


This was possible thanks to the use of an automation cell, which is fixed to the injection-moulding machine by means of a docking device. The cell essentially consists of four assemblies that enable the automation of the entire process, up to and including the electrical continuity test:

 

1. Feed system

A spring feeds the contact pins with a diameter of 0.63 mm; an integrated camera system monitors the position and tolerance. A robot picks up the contact pins, aligns them and then inserts them in the transfer station.

 

2. Transfer station

Consists of loading masks integrated in a changing frame. For new projects, the loading masks can be adapted accordingly.

 

3. Servo-motor-driven horizontal linear axis 1,400 mm

For inserting the contact pins into the injection-moulding tool and removing the finished parts with sprue and runner. Consisting of an insertion gripping module with floating docking device with interchangeable fixture for part variants.

 

4.​ Pick & place handling

For picking the finished parts and storing in a palletising pattern, including electrical test station.

When designing the system, care was taken to ensure maximum flexibility so that it can also be used for the manufacture of new products.
