Without tool changers, we have to manually detach the tool from the robot with bolts and thumbscrews, wheel the tool away on a cart, and attach a new tool the same way. This is tedious and not possible for one person to do by themselves.
Mississippis WALT Machine Inc. specializes in high-precision optical work for scientific camera assemblies. Each spring WALT Machine must meet a massive challenge: Deliver around 6000 camera housings in 2 months time, with only one CNC machine.
The company was looking to integrate a robot system that could handle placing a product sheet label in at least 5 different, smaller container models. The customer came to us with the hope of being able to improve throughput and consistency in their label placement process.
Two mobile robots independently transport goods internally in the Austrian location of Flex, one of the worlds leading technology companies. The automation of these monotonous tasks keeps processes lean, efficient and flexible and takes the strain off the employees and enables them to devote more time to more important activities.
Farason Corporation Chooses Dorner Conveyors to Integrate with its Robotic Machine to Successfully Assemble Coin Proof Sets
Placing coins into a coin presentation case insert sounds like an easy thing to do, right? But when the application calls for placing several thousand coins in exact places on moving inserts every day, the task becomes much more demanding.
If I make a change on a design, I have to be able to apply the changes quickly. And since we are competing against bigger, high-end eyewear manufacturers, we have to deliver the highest quality even if we do quite smaller productions.
This application produces a medical device with parts that are extremely heat sensitive, so cycle times have to be consistent from part to part.
Adding a robotic system enabled Groupe Gravel, a metal fabricator, to profitably automate cutting and welding for high-mix short-batch production. Robotmaster's tools enabled automatic path creation from CAD models drastically improved programming time.
The team wanted to use the robot to transform complex 3D designs from concept to physical reality in machine foam and other soft materials.
RR Floody's Powerful New Flexible Feeder System Pairs Mitsubishi Electric Robot and Cognex Vision System
With manufacturers more and more concerned about being able to change product and component mix on the fly, they are demanding a more flexible feeder bowl solution that allows for changing component recognition without expensive and time-consuming retooling of the system every time.
This machine was assembled from various parts from other machines, so "Frankenstein" was really the only logical name for it.
IPRs Robot Transport Units (RTU) Increase Both the Action Radius of Robots and the Productivity of Loading Stations
Vision-guided Collaborative Robots Deliver Fast Return on Investment in Production of Firehose Valves
The Universal Robot is so simple and non-intimidating that our programmers were already in the mindset of I dont need any guidance, I can do this on my own. It was almost like a PlayStation video game where they could pick up the controller and figure it out without reading the rules to the game.
Construction of the Airbus A380 in Hamburg involves moving aircraft components measuring 15 meters in length and weighing up to 90 tonnes.
Weiss Enters the Octagon: Unique Shaped Dial Plate Accomodates Robotic Inertia Performance and Ergonomic Efficiencies
By collaborating with WEISS on their intricate medical part subassembly system, Jerit Automation was able to achieve its next-generation octagonal design and performance goals.
