Advanced Manufacturing Systems, Inc. - Pick and Place
 
Problem: A medical supply company needed to automatically assemble contact lens cases with covers, coming directly from an injection mold machine, while not touching the part.

Solution: AMS built a system to fit on the tie bars of the injection mold machine. As the mold opens, the device travels into the mold, picks up the parts using vacuum, retracts from the mold, puts the parts together and drops them into a shipping box. After 10 years and 10s of millions of cycles, they came back to get a replacement and retired the original machine.
