Automotive Plastic Short Shot Inspection System

Automotive Plastic Short Shot Inspection System

About the Project

Quite often our customers request equipment that interfaces with existing automation. In this case we designed and built a system that was fed directly by an injection molding press inspecting automotive relay casings. Our customer, like most, was faced with increasing quality standards which motivated them to inspect every single part being produced in their molding press. We were asked to provide a system that could be flexible and portable so the customer could marry the system with a given press, run parts through the feed and inspection system, and then be able to move the system to a different press when ready.
