Automation

As an exporter we know that automation is the key to staying competitive on a global stage, removing the manual labour involved, and enhancing repeatability are key to staying competitive.

All of our moulding machines over 80T Clamp force have integrated 6 Axis robots. 6 axis robots enable a degree of flexibility that is a step ahead of traditional 3 axis robots, complex part removal, degating, insert loading, trimming, flaming, and stacking can all be achieved with relatively simple end of arm tooling that is integrated with the tooling build as a turnkey solution.

Vertical Integration

Our world class on-site toolroom is one of the huge benefits of working with Adept, high quality tooling is one of the most critical elements in quality injection moulded components and having our tooling department in the same building is one of our most valuable assets. Tool trials, modifications, sizing adjustments and repairs become seamless, our moulding engineers are involved in the tool design process, and toolmakers are involved in commissioning of tooling. Our customers don’t get excuses about substandard tooling or moulding from separate parties - they get results.
