Industrial Robotics Case Studies
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.
Solution RV2FBD1S15 6-Axis Robot L02CPU-P Programmable Logic Controller IPSUMM Product Benefits Quick switching among diverse manufacturing tasks Easy to reconfigure manufacturing capacity Scalability reduces capital investment demands Mitsubishi Electric Value-added Advantages Robust programming support Timely product availability Responsive service BACKGROUND Newly expanding to a 18,000 sq.
The Customer’s Challenge A major North American brewery required JMP’s assistance on a project that was part of an overall strategy for reducing energy usage.
The Challenge The movement of very heavy parts (over 1,000 lbs.
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.
The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing lent a hand to 35 students designing and manufacturing a single seat-racing car capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in under five seconds.
Client Profile: Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a global research university with campuses located in Pittsburgh, Qatar and Silicon Valley.
Business needs – Background A manufacturer of electric vehicle conversions offering a wide range of products, from small cars to large busses.
Part of modular CombiTac connector system, contact carriers are available for Ethernet cabling and field bus systems.
UL approved test leads are terminated with 4 mm diameter plugs for connecting standard safety test clips and probes to enable safe, fuse-protected measurements.
AxiClamp has connector body with solid metal cone that clamps copper cable strands against internal taper on metal sleeve.
Compatible with all oscilloscopes, Isoprobe® III high-frequency (250-500 MHz) test probes have coaxial connecting cable with low capacitance.
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.
