Efficiency thanks to robots

The high quality of Pentas’ rotational moulding is realised by our staff and our robots. Robots offer many benefits in terms of accuracy and efficiency. In this article, we will tell you all about the robots we deploy to manufacture plastic products.

High-precision work

It’s all in the details, especially when it comes to mass-produced plastic products. Robots are extremely good at this. Wouter Koorn, production manager at Pentas:

“We use a total of 11 robots for various tasks including filling moulds with raw material, assembling plastic products and post-processing of products, such as milling and drilling. These are all activities that require extreme precision in order to guarantee optimal quality. Thanks to our robots, we can now do this even better than ever before.”

Computer-controlled post-processing

After the cast product has been clamped onto a milling jig, the robot comes into play. Pre-programmed software controls the robot to drill holes in the product or mill pieces out. We program the software in-house which gives us flexibility and lowers the barrier of the process. This allows us deploy this technique in medium-sizes production series for efficient and stable post-processing.

Thanks to Pentas’ robots, you can rely on optimal accuracy and a high-quality finish. It has become extremely easy to create an exact reproduction of a product. Plus, robots are a cost-effective solution especially when it comes to high-volume series.

The benefits of robotised processing:

  • Cost-efficiency as less manual work is required.

  • Reproducibility provides a stable high-quality finish, now and in the future.

  • Robot accuracy is unparalleled, allowing for close tolerances to be achieved.
