New Freedom, PA (PRWEB) May 26, 2015
Crescent Industries, a leading contract manufacturer and supplier of custom molds and injection molded plastic products, has increased production capabilities by adding several new automated work cells and two Baxter robots to the production floor.
The employee-owned, custom injection molder provides an integrated single-source solution for custom plastic injection molded components – from the early stages of design and development through to final production – for an array of industries.
“We serve the medical, pharmaceutical, dental, defense, aerospace, safety, electronic/electrical, OEM/industrial industries, and our goal has always been to help our customers deliver a quality device to market on time,” said Kevin Allison, Business Development Manager at Crescent Industries.
With over 60 years in the custom injection molding business, Crescent Industries has witnessed manufacturing processes, and the supporting technology, evolve. Two Baxter industrial robots, were introduced this spring, with the purpose of helping Crescent automate an assortment of challenging manual tasks.
"As a custom manufacturer, we're constantly switching between parts and products, and had traditionally been unable to automate our injection presses for that reason," said Shawn Hedrick, process engineer at Crescent Industries.
In addition to the Baxter Robots, Crescent utilizes end-of-arm-tooling and automated work cells to improve cycle times, efficiency and quality.
"Operating on a 30-second cycle, Baxter will soon be deployed to handle a variety of parts and improve consistency, ensuring that we meet our high repeatability standards."
