Front / Rear Sorter

Part diverters are used to change the direction of a shot of parts, the discharge of a complete cycle or cycles of parts from an injection molding machine. MAC Automation Concepts, Inc. currently offers two different styles of part diverters, also known as "part discriminators" in the injection molding industry.

Free Standing Sorter

Under the press part diverters

Units sit under or hang directly from the injection molding machine and operate upon a specified signal from an IMM or process controller. A pneumatically operated tipping tray internal to the diverter housing will discharge parts out the opposite end from where all "Good" shots discharge. The two different styles of under press part diverters are a free standing unit and a quick change type.

 

 

Free standing S1

The free standing diverter, also designated by S1 type, is either a square or rectangular stainless steel housing with an internal pivoting tray actuated by a pneumatic air cylinder positioned either under the internal tray, or alongside the housing. The unit is typically supported by a mild steel T- type support stand that is 20" tall and allows the housing to adjust vertically. An air control kit consisting of a ready to mount plate supporting a solenoid valve with filter and regulator/gauge and 1/4" air hose from air valve to cylinder is included. Optional chute extensions in standardized lengths are available to add to the housing on either side to aid in part discharge.

Quick Change Rail S1

The Quick Change Rail S1 type is also either a square or rectangular stainless steel housing with an internal pivoting tray actuated by a pneumatic air cylinder positioned either under the internal tray, or alongside the housing. This unit is typically supported by an optional QCRA1 or QCRA2 quick change rail attachment kit for either press depths up to 36" or 48" deep. This style allows the rail attachments to support the load and provides for an easy install, removal or movement process. An air control kit consisting of a ready to mount plate supporting a solenoid valve with filter and regulator/gauge and 1/4" air hose from air valve to cylinder is included. Optional chute extensions in standardized lengths are available to add to the housing on either side to aid in part discharge. Many other options are available - please inquire.

 

 

Conveyor Mounted Part Diverters

ConveyorMountDiverter1ConveyorMountDiverter2

These are used either at the in-feed or discharge end of the conveyors. Four of the six may be used with flat or cleated type conveyor belts. Uses at the in-feed end of a conveyor are primarily when the IMM cycle time is very fast, and/or where a reversing belt conveyor may not be feasible. Primary use at the discharge end is when the good part container and bad part container need to be on the same side of the IMM. Custom designs available to meet specific requirements please call for more information.
