It all started from an automation system of an ink cartridge manufacturer.
In 1969, there had been a robot to take-out the ‘runner’ in the robotics market from other robot maker but there were no robots specified to take out the ‘product’ its self.
We believed that the product should not be dropped from the mold but Instead should be also taken out automatically by a robot to avoid damages from the drop.
And that’s when we decided to make one by ourselves.
produces and sells Take-out Robot for Injection Molding Machine and Factory Automation System.
