Customised Automation Solutions
Autronics were contacted by a plastic injection moulding company, who wanted to place RFID tags in their products during the moulding process. Twenty of these miniscule tags needed to be placed into the mould, ideally without interrupting the injection cycle time. As there was only thirty seconds available for this operation, Autronics knew a robot would not be capable of handling such small parts quickly and reliably enough. In addition, the cost of a robotic installation would have exceeded the likely desirable return on investment.
