Reconditioned Assembly Robot Constructs Lock Fixture

Project Summary:

A company was searching to successfully improve assembly cycle times for lock fixtures.

Application Goals:

  • A nimble robot that could assemble four parts of a lock fixture: spring, washer, a stamping, and T-shaped casting.
  • End product weight needed to be limited to 2 ounces, with a 5/8" diameter and length of 1.5".
  • Eliminate wasted time and materials with consistent assembly, while also removing workers from hazards of repetitive movement injury.

  1. Robot: A reconditioned Motoman UP6 was chosen to complete the job. It is a 6-axis, medium reach robot with 6kg payload capability.
  2. EOAT: Provided by the customer.
