How Automation Revolutionized the Plastics Industry
Plastics are an integral part of nearly every industry. From consumer goods to food and beverage products to the medical industry, consistent, high-quality plastics processing is vital. Therefore, plastic manufacturing needs to be as versatile and adaptable as plastics applications.
Automation has revolutionized the plastics manufacturing industry, enabling manufacturers to reach previously unheard-of levels of efficiency and quality. At RōBEX, our plastics automation systems allow manufacturers to sustain a high production level with fewer errors and less cost.
Before automation and advanced robotics, plastic manufacturing required people at every step of the process. From injecting plastic into a mold, to removing the part from the mold, to transferring it to another phase of the manufacturing process, human input made plastic manufacturing inefficient. Without precise robotics, it was impossible to manufacture plastic components that were too small or too delicate.
