Variants: With D1 motor controller
The IAP1 was developed for engagement in stripper and ejector moulds. Lubricant-free igus plain bearing materials are used for the movement by means of a link guide, as well as spindle and drive technology. A dynamic 1-axis picker with electric drive. The picker is particularly suitable for the automation and retrofitting of small injection moulding machines and allows the removal and separation of sprues in a very confined space. The system can be fully integrated into the injection moulding machine, with fast removal within the standard protective housing. Total mould open to close cycle in 1.25 seconds. The picker has a modular design. For example, the base can be individually adapted for different machine types. The solution is a stand-alone device including motor control with simple programming. No additional software is required.
ROI in a few months
Depending on the production volume and variant, the payback period for the investment is about 2-6 months.
For engagement in stripper and ejector moulds.
The sprue is ejected laterally
Wear parts easily replaceable
Total cycle time (opening to closing) of only 1.25 s
100% lubricant free
24/7 in operation
Economic use in igus® production
We also use our compact sprue picker ourselves in our own production - and already in more than 330 machines. In this way, we achieve automated separation of sprue and components in just 1.25 seconds.
How is the sprue picker constructed?
The sprue picker has a modular design. These igus® high-performance polymers are used for the moving components.
