Fully Automated Assembly Lines
Benefits of automated production lines
Versatile technologies for every manufacturing process
An automated production line is comprised of a series of workstations linked by a transfer system and an electrical control system.
Each station performs a specific operation and the product is processed step by step as it moves along the line in a pre-defined production sequence.
WHICH PROCESSES CAN YOU AUTOMATE
Industrial palletizing refers to loading and unloading parts, boxes or other items to or from pallets.
Automated palletizing refers to an industrial robot palletizer performing the application automatically.
Palletizing robots can be seen in many industries including food processing, manufacturing, and shipping. There is a large variety of robotic palletizers available with a large range of payload and reach
Various end-of-arm-tooling styles allow flexibility of different types of robot palletization. Bag grippers encompass an item and support it on the bottom, while suction and magnetic grippers typically handle more ridged items and grip them from the top.
By automating your shop with a palletizing robot, you can increase the consistency of your loading and unloading processes.
Material handling robots can automate some of the most tedious, dull, and unsafe tasks in a production line and is one of the easiest ways to add automation.
Material handling robots enhance the efficiency of your production line and increase customer satisfaction by providing quality products in a timely manner.
The term material handling encompasses a wide variety of product movements on the shop floor. Part selection, transferring, packing, palletizing, loading and unloading, machine feeding or disengaging are just a few of the applications that are considered material handling.
When picking material handling equipment for your facility, you should consider payload and speed requirements, end-of-arm tooling or grippers needed, facility layout and floor-space, the type of material being handled and any additional possible production problems.
Pick and place
Robotic pick and place automation speed up the process of picking parts up and placing them in new locations, increasing production rates.
With many end-of-arm-tooling options available, pick and place robots can be customized to fit specific production requirements. Moving large, small, heavy, or hard-to-handle products can be an easy task to automate in the factory line.
Consistency is also a benefit of using a pick and place system. The robots can be easily programmed and tooled to provide multiple applications if required.
An increase in output with a pick and place robot system offers long-term savings to companies. With the advancements in technology and affordability of robots, more pick and place robotic cells are being installed for automation applications.
Arc welding utilizes an electric arc between an electrode and a metal base using either consumable or non-consumable electrode.
An arc welding robot uses a process which applies intense heat to metal at a joint, causing the metal to melt and intermix.
The laser beam welding is mainly used for joining components that need to be joined with high welding speeds, thin and small weld seams and low thermal distortion.
The high welding speeds, an excellent automatic operation and the possibility to control the quality online during the process make the laser welding a common joining method in the modern industrial production.
The application range covers the finest welding of non-porous seams in medical technology to precision spot welding in electronics or the jewelry industry, to deposit welding in tool and mold-making and welding complete car bodies in automobile construction.
However, new and efficient production processes are often not possible without the advantages of laser technology. Thus, diverse sheet thicknesses and qualities are turned into tailored blanks by welding and resistance spot welding is replaced by laser seams.
