Roembke Mfg. & Design, Inc. (Ossian/Indiana, USA) provides this cell with the two molds for the application: salad tongs and a fruit bowl. The mechanical quick clamping system QMC from Stäubli (Bayreuth, Germany) is used for quick mold changes. Mold identification is carried out by means of RFID. The machine automatically adopts the correct data set for the mold without any additional adjustment to the control unit. The material used for this exhibit is HDPE, provided by Shell (Monaca/Pennsylvania, USA).

The iQ weight control machine software automatically adjusts the process parameters to batch fluctuations and changes in ambient conditions, shot by shot. This not only improves part quality during ongoing production, but also helps customers get good parts faster after a mold change. An ENGEL viper 12 linear robot removes the parts and places them on a conveyor belt. The end-of-arm tooling is also identified using RFID and exchanged with a quick coupling.

4. e-motion 440H/160TWP combi M

Efficient production on compact machine with cube mold

This compact injection molding machine with a horizontal rotary table boosts shopfloor productivity. With a minimal footprint, two-component diagnostics cartridges are produced in cleanroom conditions on an all-electric high-performance e-motion injection molding machine 440H/160TWP combi M.

This exhibit is an excellent example of a customized, fully integrated production cell designed for productivity, ease of operation, and minimal space requirements. The dual face mold, with 32 cavities each, come from Hack Formenbau (Kirchheim unter Teck, Germany).

In the combi M design, the indexing table divides the injection molding machine's mold closing area in the center to operate two mold faces in parallel. This makes combi M technology useful for integrating two-component injection molding and efficiently doubling the output. One injection unit is fitted on the stationary platen, and the second is on the moving platen.

Two robots work in parallel to manufacture diagnostic cartridges. An ENGEL viper 20 linear robot removes the two-component parts and deposits them in trays. Finally, an ENGEL e-pic pick-and-place robot covers the fully populated trays with an intermediate layer to stack them in boxes and then discharge them via a tray server, which is also integrated.

5. e-motion 50/30 TL

LSR micro injection molding of almost weightless and invisible parts

Precision components with an individual weight of less than 0.001 grams reliably and accurately injected - ENGEL and ACH Solution (Fischlham, Austria) make it possible: The perfect interaction of the 32-cavity precision mold, the micro injection unit and the tie-bar-less, all-electric ENGEL e-motion 30 TL injection molding machine produces silicone valves with a part weight of just 0.001 grams.
