Custom Machine and Tool Co., Inc.'s 72-Hour Pulley Stock Program

Custom Machine and Tool Co., Inc. Solves Delivery Lead Time of Pulley Stock to SCARA Manufacturer

Custom Machine and Tool Co., Inc. came to the rescue of a manufacturer of Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arms (SCARA), who was under pressure because of short lead times, to deliver product to its customer in the semiconductor industry. Current sources proved to be unable to deliver critical pulley stock within the required time frame, making it difficult to meet customer demands. A reliable source of pulley stock, with a much faster turnaround, had to be found.


The SCARA manufacturer heard about Custom Machine and Tool Co., Inc.'s 72-hour delivery guarantee and entered into an agreement. Now, because of CMT's Pulley Stock Promise the manufacturer can satisfy their customers' needs, knowing that they have a source that will always meet their required lead times.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
