EOAT FOR PARTS AND INSERTS
Depending on the part or insert, we study and manufacture specific EOATs from rigid compact solutions that are specially designed not to mark your parts.

Sepro EOATs guarantee accuracy, repeatability and flexibility, thanks to Sepro standard tool changers and connectors.

 

OVERMOLDING STATIONS
We prioritize the productivity, ergonomics and autonomy gains of your stations when choosing overmolding stations. They can be manual, semi-automatic or even automatic.

CONVEYOR SYSTEMS
Our conveyors integrate seamlessly with the management of your production flows for transporting single parts or containers: thermoforms, cartons, pallets, containers, etc.

STACKING CELLS
Our stacking cells allow for fully automated part stacking; this reduces manual intervention and leads to productivity and quality gains.

SPECIFIC STATIONS
IMM solutions dedicated to your needs:

  • Control: camera, presence/absence of components and electrical continuity
  • Taking and transferring parts: shuttles, vertical stackers and tippers
  • Traceability: marking, labelling and separation by cavity
  • Assembly: closing, clipping and screwing
  • Cutting injection channels or ribbons

COMPLETE TURNKEY AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS
This is the combination of the different approved solutions of our range for turnkey cells operated by the VISUAL 3 control platform.

 

A WIDE RANGE OF AUTOMATION SYSTEMS

PACKAGING SOLUTIONS
The solutions for packaging applications are designed with our Speed Entry side-entry robots that are high-speed Pick & Place robots for packaging parts. Their modular design allows for 2 types of layout and 4 variants for supporting payloads ranging from 10 to 50 kg. For single Pick & Place, mold intervention time is 0.45 s minimum for a total cycle time of 2.8 s minimum. We can equip IMMs up to 500 tonnes. The different configurations proposed are for picking & placing from single-plate or double-plate molds for different types of production.

IML SOLUTIONS
Our range of packaging solutions with labelling was developed together with Machines Pagès, an expert in IML systems. They can be used for picking & placing from single-plate molds for different types of production. By choosing IML SeproMachines Pagès, you are choosing an independent IML expert who can equip all brands of injection molding machines up to 350 tonnes, for affixing flat or wraparound labels to all types of parts (lids, pails, tubs, etc.) For affixing the label and picking & placing, mold intervention time is 0.9 s minimum for a total cycle time of 3.9 s minimum, depending on the type and depth of the part.

All SOLUTION BY SEPRO applications are operated by the extremely powerful and high-performance Sepro native Visual 3 control platform.
