Benefits of Automating An Assembly Process
Automating an assembly process with robotic technology can yield a business the following benefits:
Eliminate ergonomic strain on employees performing monotonous, repetitive assembly tasks.
Enhance quality control and consistency of assembled products.
Speed up the assembly line, increasing throughput and capacity.
Reduce overhead costs, contributing to a more profitable production line.
In partnership with leading manufacturers like OnRobot, Asyril, and Mecademic, our team of engineers is able to test your assembly application completely free of charge. This includes building out a proof of concept, testing throughput and accuracy, and more! Through this process, we can provide a clear line of sight into what your automated assembly process would look like in regards to feasibility, cycle time, tooling needs, and return on investment.
Featured Resource: Maximizing Integration Efficiency with Advanced Feeding Solutions
New Solutions from Leading Manufacturers
Automated screwdriving to boost productivity and quality has never been easier, smarter, or more cost-effective. Precise torque control and embedded axis eliminate the time and cost for additional integration and ensures consistent, accurate screw insertion. Changeovers to a different screw type or size take just minutes, reducing downtime and boosting ROI.
Meca500 Industrial Robot
The Meca500 is by far the smallest and most compact six-axis industrial robot arm. It is also the most precise one. And unlike most other industrial robots—which are usually complex stand-alone systems—the Meca500 is a plug-and-work automation component. This robot is a slave component rather than a master, which makes it very easy to integrate via any computer or PLC.
Asycube Vibratory Feeder
Asyril develops high performance flexible feeding systems for parts and components from 0.1 up to 150 mm in size. Their unique 3-axis vibration technology and intelligent vision system are easy to integrate and allow for optimized speed, accuracy and flexibility. The Asyril Asycube Series is compatible with all kinds of parts, and can perfectly handle complex geometries.
Solution Spotlight: PCB Shield Insertion Engineering Study
Proof of Concept utilizing a Mecademic robot. The system incorporates an Arduino microcontroller to control the process. The robot is tasked with snapping the shield into the PCB in 3 places. A load cell feeds back the force to ensure the necessary force is achieved but not exceeded. A Micro Epsilon laser sensor attached to the robot then measures the height of the shield and the PCB at each insertion location and calculates the height to ensure the proper insertion depth has been achieved.
