microPEP has added two more machines to its complex of fully-automated production molding systems for the high-volume production of a multi-part consumer product. This addition brings the number of machines in this dedicated manufacturing complex to 14.
The system incorporates high-speed part removal automation with custom end-of-arm tooling that automatically separates the runners from the parts. This process allows for full cavity traceability. Sensors are incorporated to insure part and runner removal, by shot.
According to engineering manager Oliver Rapp, “We were approached by our customer to develop a rapidly scalable production complex for this device within 14 weeks. We achieved this; and after initial process development began, microPEP scaled from 0 to 9MM parts/week across multiple components within 6 months.”
