Creating an optimal production line involves many factors, not least reliability and accuracy. However, there's one factor that looms large: Speed. Yushin Automation are here to help develop you manufacturing automation needs in order for you to achieve reliable, accurate and fast production all year round.

HIGH SPEED HANDLING FOR LIGHTER PAYLOADS

Yushin side entry robots are designed to sit alongside moulding machines in order to extract parts using the shortest possible stroke. Their lightweight, minimal construction make them ideally suited to packaging applications where parts are thinner and cycle times are extremely fast.

Because the whole mechanism resides at the side, there are no items above the mould where dust can cause problems. This makes side entry robots highly suited to clean room production lines for the medical and optical sectors, as well as being ideal for installations with low overhead clearance.

LOW PAYLOAD TAKE-OUT ROBOTS

Yushin sprue pickers benefit from a simplified design compared to our other ranges which means they are nimble and very cost effective for the important task of removing waste material or small products from injection moulding machines.

Vacuum forming is a simplified version of thermoforming, where a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto a single-surface mold, and forced against the mold by a vacuum. This process can be used to form plastic into permanent objects such as turnpike signs and protective covers.

Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product.

Here at Tasman, we are especially proud of our partners in the vacuum and thermoforming industry. In GN Plastics, we represent one of the most famous names in the thermoforming packaging industry. The GN name is known worldwide for their quality and technology in the ever growing packaging sector.
