Getting the Grip on Plastics with Solutions from Piab

At K 2019 in Düsseldorf, Piab presents solutions for the automated handling of plastic parts, in particular for injection moulding removal. With the acquisition of SAS and Feba Automation, Piab now offers complete end-of-arm tooling (EOATs) for this production step.

End-of-Arm Tooling for the plastics industry can cover a number of functions – all of which will help you reduce cycle times, produce consistent parts, save on personnel costs and cut down on scrap and unusable parts. Designed with modular and custom machined components, our tooling will operate on any style or make of robot.

Piab offers a complete line of modular components to allow you to rapidly build tools in your own plant, meeting rapidly changing automation needs on-demand. We can assist you with design and engineering advice as needed with trained application engineers to help your technicians in the finer points of constructing tooling for the injection moulding industry.

In injection moulding, the robot must be able to assure proper placement and alignment of the inserts. Our experience designing EOAT for insert placement has made the process second nature to us, regardless of complexity or size. Piab has developed numerous solutions such as innovative magazine loading technology to automate the entire process – from loading of over-mould parts to
extraction, degating and secondary operations.

Additionally, Piab offers degating and cutting tools to cover the whole variety of cutting situations, ranging from basic to highly sophisticated. Our hand cutters, pneumatic cutters, EOAT mounted cutters and standard and custom degaters can give you an appropriate level of precision and efficiency – even with plastics hard enough to give conventional tools trouble.

On the K2019 you can assemble and test small grippers at the Piab stand or try out ready-made grippers for everyday objects. Bring your product with you, then the Piab experts will show you how a gripper for an automation solution could look like for this project.

Visit Piab at K 2019 from 16. to 23. October in Hall 10 on Stand F19.
