Sepro Automation has made a significant impact in the field of injection molding. Their robots and control systems are designed specifically for injection molding applications, helping manufacturers automate key processes such as part removal and quality inspection. This has helped manufacturers significantly reduce cycle times, increase part quality, and minimize waste, resulting in significant cost savings.
Sepro Automation’s injection molding solutions are also designed with the needs of operators in mind. Their robots and control systems are easy to use and intuitive, with user-friendly interfaces and advanced features that help operators optimize their processes. This has helped manufacturers improve the overall quality of their products and reduce the risk of defects or other issues.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
Visual Dashboard is a ‘smart data’ solution that harnesses the power of Sepro’s Visual robot control to collect real-time production data from an IMM served by a Sepro robot. Data include cycle times, mold-open times, and production and quality rates essential to calculating Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). The data collected on several cells can be gathered on an existing MES or integrated on a dedicated platform.
