Robot A robot can be attached to, or placed adjacent to, an injection molding machine to automate repetitive or potentially hazardous tasks. The robot in the image to the left is placed on top of the injection molding machine for vertical entry. The robot must be guarded to prevent workers from entering or reaching into its space during operation.
