Components are removed, four at a time, from the first Injection Molding Machine (IMM) and are allowed to cool on a cooling rack. Cooled parts are then picked up by the quad gripper to be overmolded in the second IMM. The robot will remove overmolded parts first and then loads the core parts into the second IMM. Completed parts are placed on an outfeed conveyor.
Molded fascias are unloaded from the Injection Molding Machine and placed into a staging nest to allow for robotic part handling. The fascia is held by the first robot while 2 secondary robots degate and flame the fascia edges to remove part flash. Completed parts are set onto a conveyor for further processing.
