Industrial Robotics Case Studies
A foundry, making different car suspension parts, was using a gripper with a dust cover to grind and deburr parts out of a press.
Montreal, CANADA – Promens a.
While we all dream and work countless hours to land that giant OEM, developing a technical solution, solving their problem(s), and winning the business, but staying close to custom machine integrators is a great way to get projects, keep the orders coming in and have another pair of feet on the street looking for new applications where our SMAC technology differentiates & fits best.
Manufacturers use automation to take their operations to the next level.
In a time of growth and ever-increasing demand, the need to improve the customer experience and ensure employee safety are crucial areas of concern for distribution centers everywhere.
You know the common fear: robots are coming to take your jobs.
Just like there are a multitude of robot brands in the industrial robotics industry, there are also a multitude of options for programming.
Tufting, one of the most sought-after and classic upholstery styles, is commonly incorporated into the design of furniture.
Throughout a student’s education, the student is taken through a curriculum that shapes him/her in the best way possible for their career path.
Burlington, ON - based Old World Stone, has been providing cut stone for over 30 years.
Automation of nut and bolt welding is Lerocon’s speciality.
In some cases, it is possible to add more flexibility to the robots and thereby extend their application possibilities.
When the German company FRIMO established a plant for gluing interior fittings for the car industry, the opportunity to fully utilize its robots' mobility was decisive.
Challenge Create a 138-foot-long wet bench silicon cleaning station utilizing multiple Cartesian robots driven by a combination of linear motion and control technologies Rexroth Solution CKR belt-driven linear modules CKK ball screw linear modules MKR belt-driven linear modules IndraDyn MSK synchronous servo motors IndraDrive C digital intelligent servo drives Rexroth EasyHandling System Results Effective use of overhead Cartesian robots Precision, accuracy and repeatability across the 138-foot length of the cleaning station Robustness and reliability Cleanliness to Class 10 cleanroom standards System ordered as single part number Background Although silicon is the key ingredient for semiconductors used in smartphones and other electronic devices, only a purified form can be used to make semiconductor chips.
Delta robot adds flexible automation, improves transfer between poucher and cartoner Challenge: Improve product transfer between Medifast's pouching and cartoning machine KHS Bartelt and Rexroth Solution: Three-axis delta picker robot controlled by Rexroth’s IndraMotion MLC motion logic control platform IndraControl L65 controller with Sercos ring IndraDrive Mi cabinet-free integrated servo motor/drives IndraDrive M digital intelligent servo drives IndraDyn MSK servo motors IndraWorks programming package Results: Better integration for pouching/cartoning Stable, uniform pouch stacks for improved cartoning Easy robot positioning, changeover Reduced cabling, smaller machine footprint, higher ROI on floor space Measurable improvements in throughput, OEE The Story: In automated packaging operations, transferring products from one machine to another can often bottleneck the entire line.
