Automation's Role in Custom Injection Molding
Injection Molding Automation: How Crescent Does It!
In this section, we’ll take a more detailed look at three unique aspects of incorporating automation and robotics in our plastic injection molding processes.
End-of-arm tooling (EOAT): End-of-arm tooling allows robots to pick and place materials and products in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and to complete tasks such as assembly, packaging, pad printing, and more.
Collaborative robots: Collaborative robots, also called cobots, are found more and more frequently in our injection molding processes, especially for lower volumes and custom applications. Collaborative robots are built to work safely within close proximity with humans, assisting in tasks such as heavy lifting and loading, finely detailed assembly, and more.
Automated work cells: Automated work cells foster efficiency and produce upscale benefits by integrating various tasks or processes into one work area. With the benefit of interchangeable end-of-arm tooling, robotics to carry out a number of tasks to reduce overhead and costs.

Benefits of Injection Molding Automation
Automation creates several benefits throughout all stages of the injection molding process. These benefits are passed on to you in the form of increased quality, reduced cost, and shorter lead times.
