New robot technology expands moulded foam production at Joyce

 

At Joyce Foam Products, we continue to look for new ways of improving our production processes. Our aim is to increase value for our customers through better product, delivered when you need it.

Our latest purchase is an automated moulding line from Woodbridge Australia.

 

How does it work?

This line has fifteen carriages, so it can carry a variety of moulds.

A robot injects a preformulated polyol mixture, mixed with MDI, into the mould. This simple but robust process ensures a precise laydown pattern. This results in the production of highly resilient, semi-flexible and microcellular foam. It also means less wastage in the production process.

 

More capability for moulded products

The equipment has most recently been used to mould seat cushions for buses, trains, trams and office chairs.

But the possibilities are endless. The line has the potential to make any moulded product including pillows, office furniture and mattress components.

 

“The new automatic moulding line means we can offer customers so much more. We are one of the very few local firms making moulded foam products. So much of the business has gone offshore. I’m pleased we can offer this technology to our customers, and build on our Australian-made positioning.”

Frank van Gogh, CEO, Joyce Foam Products
