Plastics Production Benefits from Automation in Age of Technology
Ritus Corporation has incorporated automation equipment to our plastics division production line. Our goals are to reduce workplace injuries, production time and costs.
Automation equipment verifies that each molded component meets a set of parameters. If it doesn’t, the system removes that shot of parts from the production stream. “Good parts” pass through to an automated boxing system that counts the pieces and if required, adds water to nylon-made parts.
Runners are automatically separated from molded components and reground. This material is then added to the virgin material in proper ratios, making it an entirely closed-loop system.
Automation systems like this deliver better quality parts, reduce labor requirements, increase production capacity, and reduce overall part costs.
