Shelf robots were developed specifically for removing large injection- molded components. The robots are assembled on the fixed half of the injection molding machine form to save space. Removal from the injection molding machine – as with conventional removal using linear robots – takes place from above. This means that no protective doors need to be opened and no interfaces need to be expanded.
The peripheral equipment can also be attached to the side of the in- jection molding machine to save space. Sample applications: removing consoles, bumpers or other large components.
