Engineering & Fabrication of a Continuous Duty Automation System

A manufacturer of injection molded parts required fabrication of the continuous duty machine highlighted here. At HYE Precision Products we specialize in the design and fabrication of complex automated systems. This unit was designed for use as a seam buffing machine, which would be used to deburr and polish plastic injection molded parts.

Per the customer specifications the unit was engineered as a continuous duty automation system with features such as no touch labor, automatic part orientation and processing. It was designed to operate 24/7 in a high volume production mode, at 50 cycles per minute, with synchronized mechanical pick and place, a rotary indexer, and a fiber optic sensor system that checks for proper part orientation. Operated with a touch screen HMI, and controlled by a PLC system and VFDs, it also featured Ethernet for SCADA integration.

This complex Electro-mechanical and pneumatic system was fabricated from steel and aluminum, completely in-house, and utilized our advanced CNC machining and fabrication capabilities. We also applied surface finished such as anodizing, black oxide, and paining. Fully assembled it featured dimensions of 87″ in length, 48″ in width, 70″ in height, and weighed 3,700 lbs.

As a full service provider we stand behind what we build, for this customer we provide ongoing service and maintenance support, spare parts, and comprehensive training.
