Injection moulding sector
The market is very wide and includes finished products, semi-finished products and components, cosmetic or technical, for many different applications. Pilot demonstration targets a work cell equipped with a 500-tons injection moulding press to produce heavy plastic components through a multi-step production process involving two operators. This work cell currently does not adopt any automation system, such as robots, leaving to human operators the effort to handle such heavy items and to manage the complex production process. KITT4SME introduces extrinsic and intrinsic job variations in the work cell by dynamically assigning tasks to operators, cobot or Cartesian robot specifically installed in the KITT4SME’s upgraded work cell.
