INDO-MIM Project: Automation & Robotics, a case study on reducing manual intervention to boost productivity in MIM (Metal Injection Molding) parts.
The project highlighted and touched upon the 3 year-journey, and the transition from a molding shop that was run with low number of cavities and 100% manual operation to an automated molding shop with larger number of cavities. Using a specific case study, it was shown as to how the automation was horizontally deployed across 300 varieties of parts through use of MULTI-cavity tools.
INDO-MIM has progressed very well in automation in the recent years, and this is a testimony of its capability to do breakthrough innovation
