Automation for Horizontal Plastic Injection Moulding industries at to pick and place sprue (plastic waste) from plastic IMM to granulator within 8 sec reducing cycle time and thus enhancing productivity.Robot works on electro-pneumatic circuit operated by C programmed micro-controller.Design was validated in CATIA V5. The model works on 2 to 4 bar pressure air compressor with flow controlled.The model was designed for 40 to 65 ton machines. Different existing models were studied, industrial survey of 14 companies was done and by design synthesis, swing arm horizontal prototype was made with 1/2 kg payload for sprue.The robust mild steel body had miter bevel gear for power transmission and Teflon slider on aluminium arm. The best design innovation was that through gravity use, gripper wrist rotation and vertical descend stroke for sprue release was eliminated in motion sequence by adopting swing arm horizontal robot configuration instead of conventional swing arm vertical movement. Also, effective trajectory planning for swing arm cylinder was done.
