Deployment of Robots Within Insert Molding Workcells Results in Dramatic Improvements

POSTED: 04/29/2009

Every year products are being made smaller and smaller and tolerances become tighter and tighter. And when you add the need to meet strict safety-code requirements, it becomes a formula for finding new ways to

Nuclear Scientists in Australia Choose Pilz PSS to Safeguard Facility and People

POSTED: 07/07/2008

(CANTON, MI) - No other Australian safety system faces the intense scrutiny as that focused on the country's nuclear reactor and, arguably, no Australian workplace takes safety more seriously. So, when some of the world's most brilliant scientists use a new Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO) experimental facility,

Easy Does It: Robotic Packing and Palletizing of Lightbulbs

POSTED: 06/01/2008

Problem: A lightbulb manufacturer faced intense pressure to produce high-quality, reliable products while keeping consumer costs low. In this extremely competitive market, this manufacturer needed to maintain production uptime, improve reliability and minimize product damage.  To meet

Trans-gun Tool Changing

POSTED: 11/29/2004

  Reprinted by permission from Robotics World Magazine Robotic spot welding has become the metal joining method of choice in many manufacturing operations, primarily the production of automotive body parts. To keep robots flexible and make the best use of limited floor space, robotic tool changers for trans-gun resistance

Linear Motors Power Disk Drive PNP Robot


Problem: A major disk drive manufacturer needed a robot to load and unload a large vertical array of Servo Track Writers (STW's) plus an input and output shuttle within a Class 100 mini-environment.  With only a few inches of space for mechanism beyond the travel envelope, the robot

Lighting Components Supplier Improves Assembly Throughput and Increases Quality


Problem: Effectively manufacturing modern lighting systems in high volume, such as fluorescent light fixtures, has traditionally been a very labor-intensive process. Labor costs and the need to precut and stock various lengths of wiring for different fixture configurations reduces materials management flexibility and results in higher levels of work-in-process, and more

Company Increases Throughput and Time-to-Market with Robotic Assembly System


Problem: About two years ago, Murr Elektronik found itself facing a growing demand for its electronic products. The company needed to increase throughput and time-to-market, but it was already having trouble controlling manufacturing expenses. Companyexecutives needed a way to control manufacturing costs without relocating their facilities to areas

Fiber Optics Patch Cords Patch Cords


Problem: The manual assembly of fiber optic pigtails requires operators to work with super small parts that have sub-micron assembly tolerances. Improper component assembly causes misalignment of the fiber cables which greatly reduces the output capacity of the finished connectors. Traditional first pass yields from

Adept Robotic System Improves Quality of Circuit Board Assembly


Problem: Lucent's manufacturing process required workers to manually place pins on circuit boards whose resistors, capacitors and other components were held by solder paste. Because the paste had not solidified, the slightest bump could cause alignment errors, requiring a board to be reworked. Solution: The Lucent workcell combines an Adept
