This robot cell includes automatic handling, component bowl feeding, automated leak testing, passed and failed part segregation and automatic packing of automotive moulded plastic sensors.
The system integrates a 6-axis robot handling 6 inserts from a bowl feeding system into 6 moulds located in a mould tool fastened to a rotary table. On completion of the over moulding process assemblies are transferred to a cooling system using the robot and indexed to a position to be leak tested. On completion of the leak test the tested moulding are manipulated into pass/fail/sample chutes to be dropped into packing boxes/bins
