EINS EOAT COMPONENTS
We are specialised in both designing and manufacturing chucks (EOAT) and commercialising their components in order to meet the most different requirements, providing our know-how and adequate technical support. Our components are the result of a 50-year experience in the field of plastic injection moulding. All components are specifically studied to obtain the best performances in compactness, lightness and reliability; for this reason, they are particularly indicated for multi-cavity chucking attachment. More than 1300 chuck components allow you to make the chuck assembly by yourself, with very low costs.
Product category: Equipment for In-Mould-Labeling (IML)
IML AUTOMATED SYSTEMS
Star automation Europe has been manufacturing IML automation systems since 1995. The long experience in this important field has driven Star to develop more and more flexible and high-performing solutions. IML applications, which are mainly used on food containers produced by 2, 4, 8 and 16 cavity moulds, are normally performed by two models of side entry robots, namely the TZ-1500HM and S7 Flex. Star has also reached important results in other sectors where IML is required: paint containers are just one example that shows how a side entry robot can be used in place of a vertical entry robot, like the XW-VI or ZXW-VI model, depending on specific cycle requirements.
XW-VI Series vertical entry robots represent the ideal solution for the handling of moulded pieces. The basic robot of the XW-VI series is equipped with a colour touch screen pendant and the operator can either choose the pre-set operative modes selectable from the pendant or to program it directly with free programming. This series offers many advantages like the huge potential of the controller STEC-520, extremely short extraction times, 5 CNC axis series and, most importantly, low power consumption.
ZXW-VI Series top entry robots represent the ideal solution for particularly fast production cycles. Thanks to their powerful motors, perfectly balanced with the moving masses, it is possible to obtain extremely short extraction times, inferior to one second, and very accurate repeatability. A robot which can satisfy the most various requirements of a demanding customer: open mould time (as typically required in the packaging sector) is reduced, and programming of special palletization, operations beside the IMM can be easily done.
Star Automation Europe was born in 1989 as the branch of Star Seiki Co. Ltd. for the distribution of automation systems for the injection moulding sector in Europe. Star Seiki Group was founded by the Shiotani family in 1964 in Nagoya (Japan) and currently counts more than 1000 employees worldwide and branches in all continents.
More than 200.000 robots installed all over the world witness the high reliability and quality of our products. These are just two of the main reasons of the loyalty that our valued customers have shown during all these years. In fact, Star Automation Europe has met the requirements of its customers by designing highly reliable standardised solutions. This is possible thanks to the significant number of standard products and to the experience of its highly-motivated personnel, always aiming at customer satisfaction. Star Automation Europe has also developed many applications for packaging and IML sectors, with solutions offering high flexibility and efficiency.
The professional and technical preparation given to Stars personnel is one of the key factors which allow us to face and solve all technical problems with competence and the right attitude for mutual satisfaction.
