Robotics Case Study
Inergy, a division of Plastic Omnium, is the first to use extrusion blow molding to produce plastic fuel systems. Once formed, the tanks are sent through a cooling tower and placed on conveyor where it continues down the line. CCS' one step fabrication system allowed manufacturing to remain simple, despite complex tank shapes. Inergy implemented a Multi-axis Robot, the robotic cell is placed at the exit of the cooling tank. It then grabs tanks of differing sizes and structures out of the tower and places them at the start of the conveyor system.
