FRIMO AT K 2022
Flexible and sustainable technology solutions
The FRIMO Group is one of the leading tool and system suppliers for the production and finishing of high-quality plastic components. With an exceptionally broad spectrum of technologies and services, including high-quality tools as well as high-performance stand-alone systems or fully automated production lines, we support our customers in every single process step. At K 2022, the focus will be on automated production solutions with the aim of increasing efficiency and productivity, as well as OneShot and combination solutions that pay attention to energy and material saving targets.
FRIMO will present holistic and integrated solutions for PUR processing, flexible cutting, punching, pressing/forming, thermoforming, press laminating, edgefolding and joining technologies at its own booth and at other booths together with partners.
60 YEARS OF FRIMO
On the move for you for more than 60 years.
At FRIMO, we see the key to success in the continuous and long-term development of our competencies and in the passion with which our teams set everything in motion for the best technology solution.
FRIMO FLEXTRIM ROBOTIC CELL
For flexible deburring and more.
In the automotive sector, there are a number of larger plastic components that need to be deburred in certain areas. In close cooperation with Schunk, FRIMO has developed a standardized, flexible deburring cell. In this process, the protrusion is milled off with a special deburring spindle. The cell is equipped with a T-slot table on which the component to be machined or further machining stations can be fixed.
The new FRIMO robotic cells for deburring offer maximum flexibility, as the robot can either guide the deburring tool along a fixed component or guide the component along a fixed deburring fixture. In contrast, conventional automatic deburring machines are usually designed for only one application.
Experience our FlexTrim robotic cell for flexible deburring live at our booth C60, hall 13.
FRIMO BACK-MOLDING TECHNOLOGY WITH INTEGRATED TRIM
For sophisticated interior components and increasingly also exterior applications in vehicles, decorative films are frequently back-injected with a carrier material. To avoid the gating point being visible on the good side of the components, it is often placed to the side or outside the component. But even in these cases, removal of the sprue often presents a special challenge.
FRIMO has developed a method of removing such sprues and foil protrusions in an integrated process in such a way that further post-processing is no longer necessary. The core element is a robot with a custom-developed removal gripper that guides the back-molded component past the stationary trimming station after removal from the injection molding cavity, true to contour. The trimming cell can be installed as a "bolt-on unit" directly on an injection molding machine.
The process is not limited to components with back-molded decorative foils. It can be used for all rather complex injection molding applications.
FRIMO INNOVATIVE BUMPER PRODUCTION
FRIMO has been supplying equipment for the final production of bumpers for several years and in the meantime counts practically all well-known 1st tiers in this segment among its own customers. The well-known equipment for combined punching, welding, gluing, milling, assembly for license plates, distance sensors, add-on parts etc. is only a part of the product portfolio. With new types of equipment and processes, FRIMO is taking a decisive step together with its customers towards the bumper production of the future. Flexible robot welding and assembly systems, highly flexible assembly lines and the seamless integration of sensors as a design application, i.e. sensor holder is no longer visible from the outside, complement the portfolio of classic plant technology for bumper punching.
Flexible joining by robot.
With the FRIMO FlexLine joining concepts, we offer you maximum flexibility with customized automation. Even for challenging production conditions as well as for limited space or special floor plans, FRIMO offers customized manufacturing solutions that take into account all requirements for smooth production. Technology and function integration as well as an optimal degree of automation are the key to success. A modular design also makes it possible to relocate complex and interlinked production lines with little effort. You can also find more information in our technology brochure.
