Robotic Automation by Category
Types of Robotic Automation for use in multiple industries and applications.
From new robot installations, to advance ready-to-go robotic cells our team has the experience to achieve great success in every one of these categories:
With the recent loss of labor and lack of workforce, Robotic CNC Machine tending is a great solution. From placing raw parts into machines with to dropping finished parts off on a conveyor or a dunnage container once complete, Machine tending can be a predictable part throughput you can count on time and time again.
When repetitive motions begin to injure and impair your employees, it’s time to take a look at automation using robotics. Material handling robotic will keep employees out of danger and harms way and also provide a constant part production and or a reliable way to relocate parts on conveyors or in and out of industrial machinery.
With a robotic vision system, the robot locates objects within its working range with fewer fixtures and other sensors to locate a part or object in production or distribution channels. Changing the way the robot locates parts with change the overall complexity of the cell design and quickly allows fast picking and locating of parts in fixtures, tombstones, and other load/unload applications.
A press brake is one of the most overlooked tools in the manufacturing industry to be automated. A robot can pick up and insert blanks and sheets to insert into the press brake and also support it during the bending operations. Either parts or sheet metal can be delivered to the press brake via a conveyor or a magazine rack and then unloaded into a dunnage container or unto a fixture for multiple passes or the continuing operations of the finishing the part.
Robotics have come a long way in the past decade, they are now used more often for trimming, cutting, and deburring then ever seen before. Helping with the labor shortage and also lack of skilled workers, robotics are repeatable and reliable and when combined with automation can be used for part checking and passing inspections once the part has been finished.
After machining and before parts and products become distributed, they need to packaged and or palletized for shipments. While most places still do this manually, they often risk injury to employees and or products while doing so. Products can be stacked, bagged, and organized into crates, dunnage, and or packaged neatly in a quick and clean manner. From large pieces to ultra-fine medical products, robots will not quit or give up filling your orders when they are in the utmost demand from the consumers.
When all other categories of automation don’t meet the standard criteria, this is where the CNC Solutions team gets creative. With their years in the manufacturing industry and automated controls are engineers have come up with some fascinating manufacturing cells and custom machinery using robots to the best of their benefits. If you have something complicated and others have failed to automated, let’s discuss and see how we can get it up and running together!
