Sprue Picker Robot
Sprue picker robot, mainly used for 30-280 tons of various horizontal injection molding machines to remove finished products and sprue. The single function is used for the sprue picking, and the full function with vacuum function can be used to pick up the sprue and take out the product simultaneously. The rotary assembly mechanism can rotate the product 90 degrees. The function of this robotic arm can increase productivity, reduce product defect rate, ensure operator safety, reduce labor cost and control production precisely and reduce waste.
Sprue picker robots are an important equipment in various injection molding machines such as wide injection molding machines, vertical injection molding machines, etc. They are mainly used for sprues removal. Moreover, they have a solid construction to enable low vibration, fast movement, and precise removal. They are also easy and quick to install which allows fast transfer to various molds with minimal downtime.
Alfarobot offers sprue picker robots that come in different weight, cycle times, minimum pick-out, crosswise/vertical strokes, and other specifications. Our sprue picker robots can perform all basic functions with maximum accuracy and precise movements.

Sprue picker robots are controlled by servo motors. When the mold opens, their arm shoots between the 2 platens. Then, the arm starts to retract upward out of the mold area as the clamps hold the spur. Their arm will then swing out to a predetermined angle. The clamp then releases the sprue when the arm extends once again. In preparation for picking up the sprue, the arm retracts and straightens. This all happens in a short amount of time.
Sprue picker robots are important equipment in plastic processing industries such as:
- Compound mixing
