Industrial Robotics Case Studies
Application: Arc Welding
Used where clamping is not possible, magnetic adapters safely attach test leads onto screw heads.
The great advantage is obvious: the modular design permits the construction of application-specific plug connectors with standard modules.
As a customer-specific solution, Multi-Contact has developed fully shielded connectors for power supply with frequency converters, e.
…pairs a material-handling robot to manipulate weld fixtures with a robotic welder.
Client Profile: AV&R Vision & Robotics is a leader in industrial automation, offering intelligent automation solutions to optimize manufacturing processes and to control quality.
Precise, reliable cutting and machining centers; words not often used to describe industrial robot arms.
Automation has supported accelerated growth at Tier-Two and Tier-Three automotive supplier JR Manufacturing, a key link in the Honda supply chain for headrest pillars and welded-wire frames for seats and arm-rest cushions.
Four long-armed heavy-metal welding robots lay down 150 lb.
