Throughout the history of manufacturing it seems that consumer needs often result in innovation, one way or the other.

Here at Ferriot, we’ve been seeing an uptake in demand for adding additional molded-in features to plastic parts—especially larger, injection molded structural foam parts. This is also a much more cost-effective solution for assembly.

Recently, we added a 2,250-ton Negri Bossi Bi-Power, our largest press ever! It took a fleet of five 18-wheelers to deliver. The entire system encompasses a Conair Carousel Plus W400 dehumidifying dryer, a Kuka six-axis robot and a conveyor. We had to take a novel approach by integrating the Sytrama SCP2 control with the Kuka.  Our aim in all this was to make programming the robot easier for the technicians.

Clients demand parts that are precise, and with Ferriot’s 20 injection molding presses we are committed to finding them a solution that works. The key with injection molding is how quickly the machine can be changed over from part to part. Downtime costs money and we don’t want to pass those costs on to our clients.

We recently talked about this with Plastics Machinery. You can download the full article here.
