Increasing the safety of plastic and polymer production with collaborative robots.
Robots from Universal Robots can be used across all areas of plastic and polymer production, including de-gating, PCB loading and unloading, and pick and place projects.
Plastic and polymer manufacturing requires high flexibility since different materials require different processing and temperature ranges.
Multiple stages in your production can be automated – even when there is no one around. Robot arms from Universal Robots reduce employee exposure to gases given off during the production of plastics and polymers. UR robots increase safety therefore protecting employees on the production lines from plastic shavings and handling of sharp objects. Collaborative robot arms also reduce repetitive work for employees while being able to extend production capabilities.
Flexible Processing of plastics and polymers
With different types of plastics and polymers requiring non-identical production processes, production may need to change often. Robot arms from Universal Robots can increase production in your company without having to adjust staff levels.
Universal Robots robot arms are lightweight, space-saving, and easy to re-deploy to multiple applications. It is fast and easy to move the robot to a new process – this gives you the agility to automate almost any task – including those with small runs or fast change-overs in plastic and polymer production.
Many companies employ a research and development department to monitor and improve material response to proceseessing. For testing apparatus a UR can be deployed and re-configurated as needed helping you learn about your materials without time constraints. Providing a robot for this process may be your first step into automation.
