The plastics manufacturer also considered a vendor with a fixed automation system that included a simple slide but decided that system wasn’t reliable enough for its needs. In addition, every time the mold tooling changed, the slide also had to be changed to accommodate the new product. This created a higher cost to change tooling that was not acceptable. The facility included one machine with a manufacturers fixed automation system, but they wanted to find a more flexible and reliable solution.

A national manufacturer of stock and custom plastic packaging solutions for the food packaging, chemical, automotive and household industries faced the challenge of improving its safety and ergonomics associated with its manual system of unloading its Nissei Bottle Making Machine at its manufacturing facility. The company also wanted to find a solution to reduce scrap and increase productivity.


Compared to a different take out system, six axis robots give us an option to even pack the bottle or bring it to a leak detection machine. Now we have dwell time at the robot,” said the plant manager. “Six axis robots give us the ability to look at secondary operations and an opportunity to potentially add some value to our customer’s process. We can present it to our customers as a benefit. Efficiency at the facility has been greatly affected by the addition of Robotic SUBTA units.
It combines the automatic feeder with the automatically moving electric screwdriver to realize the complementary supply of screws and the locking, which greatly improves the production efficiency and saves manpower. Once the screwdriver is lifted after locking the screw, the automatic feeder will send the other screw to the Escape of the automatic feeder. The screwdriver head absorbs the screw and the robot can automatically move according to the coordinate point and tighten it. This is particularly suitable for multi-station workpieces of the same specification.
