Automated production lines that can grip hot products without causing damage

August 16, 2021

Background

One of the production lines of Zhuhai Gree Electric Co., Ltd. needs to push out the air conditioning fan blades moulded in the injection moulding machine and then grip them for unloading.

 

Challenge

The fan blade is hot when it is freshly removed from the injection moulding machine and is also soft and easily deformed, so it is difficult to grip manually. Moreover, the air conditioning fan blade has no suction points and the surface is extremely easy to scratch, which cannot be perfectly addressed by traditional rigid grippers and suction cups.
