Robot-based automation of die casting processes is rapidly becoming a key success factor in this highly competitive business segment.
Robots eliminate weak spots in the foundry process chain by providing increased productivity, flexibility, quality & workplace safety.
ABB Foundry robots are completely sealed and have a two-component high-resistance enamel surface and IP67 certification. These robots are ready to meet the challenges of hot metal spits, heat and lubricants found in modern die-casting foundries.
ABB robots provide reliable automation for applications such as : Spraying, Extraction, Insertion & Ladling. Installed on top of the die-casting machine the robots can save space, leaving the machine accessible and shortening cycle times. Placed next to the die-casting machine the robot handles extraction & insertion and provides the user with flexible installation and optimal utilization.
In some special cases one robot placed close to the injection system can be used for ladling directly liquid metal on die casting machine.
