All Minatech robotic systems allow for complete production
control of the robot from touch panel interface.
Operators are able to reset, enable, home, start,
and stop the robot with ease.
Take-out and Part Handling
Take-out systems for blow molding machines are
available as dedicated equipment or incorporate the
use of an industrial robot (FANUC). Minatech take-out
systems are available for accumulator head (e.g.
MILACRON, KAUTEX), shuttle (e.g. FHB, BEKUM) and
stretch blow molding machines (e.g. AOKI). We provide
seamless communication and integration with the
primary process equipment. Take-out systems provide
part qualification and positive part control
throughout the entire secondary operations
De-flashing and Trimming
Minatech offers two major de-flash technologies for
blow molded parts: trim-die and ultrasonic
cutting/de-flashing. Trim-die process is recommended
for parts with adequate structural integrity as they
exit the blow molding press. We complete the system with a full set of
tooling for the de-flash units: mask and clamp
trim-die punch are made for parts of varied complexity.
Ultrasonic de-flashing is recommended for thin wall
parts and parts with flash all the way around the
part. Ultrasonic de-flashing is beneficial for
heavily customized blow molding operations, since it
requires minimum interchangeable tooling. To further simplify
tool changeovers, Minatech has introduced RFID tool
tracking and part setup from the HMI.
Utilizing the latest in FANUC Robotics line tracking
technology or traditional bowl feeding systems
Minatech offers assembly robotic cells for blow molded
and injection molded parts. Assembly equipment allows
positive part control through the entire process and
the ability to compensate for the constantly changing
dimensions of the blow molded parts as they cool down
during the assembly process. Additionally, we offer
installation of parts that have a low torque
specification. Along with assembly of the parts
Minatech has successfully developed unique chip-less
drilling technology for chemical and gas tank containers.
No plastic remains inside the part after drilling is complete.
Minatech offers robotic palletizing cells utilizing
industrial robots (FANUC). Equipment includes skid
feeding systems, slip sheet magazines, palletizing
and unloading conveyors integrated with strapping
