Robot gets to grips with flexible PVC floor tiles

Robot gets to grips with flexible PVC floor tiles
Ecotile, a manufacturer and distributor of interlocking floor tiles, has fully automated its manufacturing process using a single FANUC Robotics robot working between two Sumitomo (SHI) DEMAG injection moulding presses. Using advanced gripper design from systems integrator Hi-Tech Automation has allowed Ecotile to overcome handling issues associated with flexible PVC. Two years ago Ecotile made the decision to begin manufacturing tiles which it had previously imported since 1995. High Euro exchange rates, lack of flexibility in design and colour options together with a desire to have greater control over quality and margins were all drivers to begin manufacturing in the UK.
