Precision is required when injection moulding ready-to-use connectors: the part weights of the PP and TPE components are only 0.2 and 0.05 g respectively.
A turnkey system produces ready-to-use Luer connectors. The innovative solution eliminates the need for a second mould and additional assembly.
The 2-component parts are assembled directly in the mould. Mould functions and six-axis robots are integrated into the GESTICA control system.

ARBURG solutions used
ALLROUNDER MORE 1600
The ALLROUNDER MORE series is specially designed for multi-component injection moulding. It offers plenty of space for moulds and a usable ejector stroke, modularity in assembly, as well as ease of use and simple maintenance.
The Yaskawa six-axis robot is integrated into the GESTICA and can be programmed directly via the machine controller. It removes the finished parts, feeds them to a camera inspection and deposits them separately by mould cavity.
As a system integrator, ARBURG offers customised production cells from a single source. The automation program also includes Yaskawa and KUKA industrial robots "powered by ARBURG".
Four servo-electric axes from ARBURG sister company AMKmotion, monitored via the GESTICA, play a central role. In the mould, they control the sequences for core-back, lifting the lid, capping, and unscrewing the Luer threads.
