In order to meet customer expectations by supplying a wide variety of packaging units, from 36 to 1000 spoons per package, a new production and packaging line needed to be built. DeSter wanted to achieve higher production capacity, lower cycle time and a high degree of operator friendliness with this new production line.
DeSter is a world leader when it comes to plastic cups, mugs, plates, and cutlery with more than 1,000 employees around the world.
A new plastic spoon line was built with the demands of the market in mind. The heart of the production line is a 400-ton injection molding machine with a 144 composite mold. For unloading the products from the mold, a 6-axis IRB 6600 robot is employed.
