Robot Feasibility - Sanding Steel Safes The objective of this feasibility study was to integrate a robotic system to sand the exteriors of welded steel safes of different sizes. Four Project Phases: Testing the robotic arm's reach envelope to ensure surface area sanding coverage. Testing end of arm tooling (EOAT) for sanding application. Building the proven EOAT and integrating production peripherals for final simulation before shipment.
Case Study - International Robot Sales Fanalca S.A. is a motorcycle assembly and manufacturing company for Honda located in Cali, Columbia. Thanks to RobotWorx, a robotics integrator based in Ohio, they were able to install their first welding robot. Fast service, low cost robots, and a strong Internet presence brought this international company to RobotWorx' door. The Robot Solution: Fanalca needed a robot to perform MIG welds on motorcycle fuel tanks.
Integration for Robotic Flame Spray Application Project Summary: Met all robot equipment and project quality needs. Unique flame spraying job required a complete feasibility study and robot model evaluation. Thermal spraying involves melting material with an oxyfuel gas flame and propelling it onto the part.
Robot and Conveyor System for Palletizing Bags of Beans Project Summary: Affordable, robot palletizing system streamlined and accelerated bag processing for a company handling more than 100,000 bags of edible beans per year. Application Goals: Place bags onto slip sheets in railcars Restructure process to handle 5-7 bags a minute. Design tooling configuration that can adjust to handle two different sized bags weighing 100lbs and 110lbs.
Our staff carefully listened to the needs of a company that wanted to cut cycle times and improve their machine tending application. The RobotWorx team of experts worked with the company and discussed a variety of options to see what would be the best fit for their business and price point. RobotWorx decided on the perfect solution for this business inquiry, and decided on a Reconditioned 6-axis Motoman UP130 robot.
A company was searching to successfully improve cycle times while also increasing throughput with robotic precision assembly solution. Application Goals:The company was in need of a nimble robot that could assemble four parts of a lock fixture: spring, washer, a stamping, and T-shaped casting. They were looking for the end product to weigh only two ounces with a 5/8" diameter and length of 1 1/2".
Reconditioned Robot Integrated for Welding in a Classroom Project Summary: Cost-effective reconditioned robot provided for Mexican technical university. Solution fit both the budgetary and performance requirements of the educators. Application Goals: Provide a reliable and affordable teaching model with arc welding capabilities RobotWorx Solution Details: Fanuc ARC Mate 100i RJ2 - Reconditioned 6-axis medium reach robot with 6kg payload capability.
The company was seeking a decrease in their operational costs and an increase in production by replacing an existing workcell with an updated automation system.Application Goals:This company wanted to produce consistent, high-quality weldments. They needed a system to help minimize any danger of a worker/operator injury from arc glare, fumes, smoke. The robot workcell desired would perform with consistent quality and imrpove the overall throughput and productivity.
Turnkey RobotWorx Workcell for Welding Pressure Tanks Project Summary: Custom workcell designed to perform exact welds in a consistent, safe, and quick manner. Application Goals: Weld .5" diameter release valves to DOT 39 pressure tanks with cosmetic precision. Improve throughput and weld consistency. Minimize wasted material by eliminating weld mistakes. Greater worker safety because of arc glare protection.
Foundry Robot Integrated for Press Tending Application Project Summary: Reconditioned robot solution met all specifications for material handling with efficiency and safety in a foundry setting. Application Goals: Press Tending: Robot inserts a round billets into the press machine, then removes the seamless aerospace engine rings that are created. Needed a long reach robot model to handle application.
