As a leading provider of factory automation and robotics to the Powder Metal Industry, Automated Cells will be showcasing videos of recent powder metal material handling solutions and debuting a new robot suitable for light part handling and assembly. The robot will be equipped with FANUC iR Vision for guidance and part inspection and demonstrate braze pin insertion into planetary carriers. Vision images can be displayed via the Internet enabled iPendant (robot teach pendant). This cell offers a high-speed cost effective solution to the difficult material handling problem on inserting pins into holes.
(Powder metallurgy or PM is a process of forming net shape or near net shape metal parts by compacting and heating the parts to just below their melting point and is a process that has been around for 100 years).
ACE is ready to help our PM friends and all manufacturers who want to emerge leaner and meaner in 2010. Please contact us for your automated material handling and robot needs.
