Side Entry Robots

Side Entry Robots.


Side entry robots are a solution to many areas of your business, the success of an automated injection moulding (molding) production cell, hinges on the interruption time introduced by the automated de-mould equipment.

db automation Ltd as Part of the PCE GROUP provide an automation solution that provides a short cycle time minimising delay to production letting the robot axis do all the work, improving productivity and giving opportunity to your workforce to achieve targets and goals set.

db automation Ltd specialise in bespoke design and manufacture of high speed side entry robotics.


Utilising fully optimised servo driven axes, take-out times can be reduced to below 0.5 seconds. The reduction in the delay to the injection moulding equipment allows for exceptionally short cycle times, with proven results.

Our reputation has won us awards for high specification injection moulding robotics.  Our clients and collaborators benefit from the robust and high speed nature of all  equipment designed by db automation Ltd, and the integration of this equipment within an injection moulding cell provides reliable, high yield production facilities.

We continue to develop and engineer specific robotics to suit a wide variety of applications and market sectors. Using one of our standard formats or utilising our bespoke designed automation solution, we are able to fulfil your requirements for injection moulding  (molding) automation.


Side entry robot

High speed applications where the cell footprint is not limited and further down stream automation is required can be supported by our linear beam side entry robots. db automation Ltd’s experience in integration with all major Injection Moulding Machine (IMM) manufacturers, can achieve take-out times of 0.5 seconds.

This style of high performance linear robotics can be adapted to suit endless applications and a wide variety of market sectors, including medical, pharmaceutical, household and plastics and those seeking to use new alternatives to plastic or recyclable material.

db automation ltd’s design and install Compact Flexible Robot’s (CFR) these are an is an ideal solution if you have limited space or are looking for a machine move and wanting to utilise space, as well as increase productivity. The design of the system is such that the take-out axis of the robot swings through an arc in order to enter the moulding area. With this format it is possible to achieve reduced take-out times to below 0.5 seconds.

Possible enhancements to this equipment allow for the real time tracking of the IMM platen position in order that the take-out robot may enter the mould area as soon as the tool allows enough access, and before the IMM is fully open. This application is ideal for deep products where the tool opening distance is excessive.


Downstream automation can be incorporated onto any of the side entry robots to complete the production process.
