Bottle flash remover robot

Compact robotic arm for removing waste plastic flash after molding large water bottles

Frisella Design is known for designing and building automation engineering solutions that have confounded other automation companies. In this example, Frisella has created a custom and very compact Fanuc robotic arm device that takes newly molded large water bottles of various shapes, and inserts them into a stripping device that automatically shears off the plastic waste flash (waste material) left over from the molding process.

The unique design of this compact machine allows it to have a footprint one third the size of the machine it replaces. Factory floor space is always at a premium, so a device that saves 60% of the space (and accomplishes its task with sturdy, high production volume) is a major accomplishment. Imagine a machine taking up the size of a small bathroom replacing one the size of a normal living room.


This robotic solution is being readied for implementation in several manufacturing plants across the US. Frisella specializes in creative automation solutions that will solve your long-standing manufacturing and assembly problems, while increasing production and providing ease of maintenance. All our designs are engineered for durability and long life. Give us a call to discuss your automation needs.
