Project Summary: Unique turnkey welding workcell designed to meet customer specifications. Robotic system had to be flexible - able to weld two different types of military fuel tanks. The workcell increased cycle speed, conserved product and cost, and improved quality. A complete safety environment was built into the system as well. Application Goals: Quality: With robotic welding, the results were consistent and thorough.
A company was in need of a custom pick and place robot system that could sort 3-4 different parts quickly and efficiently. The company needed the parts to move from one conveyor to two others, one for good and one bad parts. RobotWorx provided the right robot models (Motoman UP20 XRC) to accomplish this challenging task. Grippers and manual tool changers were also required and provided to handle the various parts.
Project Summary: RobotWorx provided machine tool supplier with a suitable material handling robot to integrate into their existing system. Robot was equipped with appropriate tooling and met company's need for affordability and top quality. Application Goals: Dual ended gripper for picking cylindrical blanks 6-10" long and weighing up to 10lbs. Grippers mounted back to back and allowed 1.5" of travel.
Long Reach Arc Welding Solution with ARC Mate 120iL Project Summary: Thermoforming injection molding company required a welding solution with a long reach. RobotWorx built an affordable system complete with a reconditioned robot, new power source, and total safety environment. Application Goals: Weld Quality: The ARC Mate 120iL provided consistent welding quality. Flexible and accurate, it help to increase throughput and cycle speed.
Motoman SK6 for Arc Welding Project Summary: RobotWorx met application and price-point requirements with an inexpensive SK6 equipped with a complete welding package. Application Goals: Affordability - Provided budget-friendly, reconditioned robotic welding system with all necessary components, including: robot, welding torch, wire feeder, controller, and teach pendant.
RobotWorx Pre-engineered Workcell Built for Ammo-Box Welding Project Summary: Metal fabricating company required a custom-built workcell with a manual turntable for military arc welding application. RobotWorx created a RW900 workcell which in turn improved safety, weld quality, throughput, and cycle time. Application Goals: Welding both aluminum and steel components for ammo-style boxes measuring 3'L x 12"W x 8"D.
The company desired to increase their cycle times and throughput with a Ferris wheel positioner, efficient welding solution that would create less downtime. RobotWorx excels at integrating reconditioned robot systems for multi-welding automotive components that help to increase speeds, safety, and improve the overall weld quality.
Feasibility Study - Integrating Multiple Robot Applications The objective of the proposed project was to integrate a robotic system with the ability to dispense raw material and remove a finished shower base from a molding machine. Project Focus Points The first step was ensuring application feasibility. The vacuum system and dispensing method tests were conducted separately. The second step was testing a prototype set of tooling designed for the two applications.
Robot Palletizing Feasibility Study The objective of the feasibility study was to integrate a robotic system with the ability to palletize different sized bags onto an outgoing skid with a slip-sheet placed between each palletized layer for a multinational pharmaceutical company. Phase 1: Project Focus Points Tested end of arm tooling (EOAT) for consistent bag pick-up. Tested EOAT for consistent slip-sheet placement.
Robotic Deburring Feasibility Study The objective of the proposed project was to integrate a robotic system to deburr metal flash from the exterior of various sizes of hardened steel drill shanks for an Ohioan drilling and cutting solutions company. Project Focus Points Testing the robotic arm's reach envelope to ensure complete shank surface and drill bit slot area coverage. Testing the end of arm tooling (EOAT) for the deburring application.
