Week 2 – Automotive – Production lines for car pedals components

Production lines for car pedals components Five complete systems have been supplied and installed in two different plants in Italy. Each system consists of a moulding machine (280t and 350t) and an automation cell. The purpose of our solution is to select and place inside the mould two or four metals inserts to be over moulded by raw plastic material. The robot, subsequently, picks finished pieces and places them on the conveyor belt. Inserts could have different dimension, being the result of shearing machine operations. For this reason, we set up seven different End-Of-Arm Tools for each pedal, which are composed of pushing, conveying, and centring control system. Operators carry out inspections to ensure the right manual positioning of inserts on the board, preventing flaws no longer reversible during the automation process.
