Close-up of automation machine


Nowadays, over half of all metallic stamped parts are combined directly or indirectly with plastic in the downstream production process. The use of coated plastic parts has now become standard in the automotive industry. Even in other areas such as electronics the process is used very commonly. VWH stands for innovative ideas in injection moulding automation that optimize production and product. When manufacturing plastic parts, or when coating other materials with plastic, many different work stages are combined with each other in order to achieve the best possible end result.

So it is important that all the gears mesh ideally with each other and that no gaps appear within the process. We offer you solutions for integrating injection-moulding machines into fully automated processes for manufacturing complex modules, and provide the basis for smooth production flows.

After the actual manufacture, the plastic parts need to be removed from the respective mould. The experts at VWH develop complete solutions for this work stage, using 6-axis robotic systems or linear axis systems and item-specific grabber modules. These remove the components from the injection mould fully automatically, or turn multi-component injection moulding parts within the system.

Wide-ranging areas of application

If components need to be machined and injected using insert engineering, our teams of experts deliver functional options for equipping the system. The inserts are placed into the tool responsible for the injection moulding, and are then coated with a layer of plastic. This technique is commonly used for the further processing of threaded bushings, contacts, metal sheets or coils. Magnets can be injection coated, as can motherboards. The options are practically endless and the widest variety of combinations are imaginable.
