Material handling/assembly

Material handling

Material handling robots are used to move, feed or disengage parts or tools to or from a specific location, or to transfer parts from one machine to another. Manufacturing companies all over the world integrate material handling robots into their systems due to their speed, precision and cost-effectiveness. Compared to manual material handling, they also provide a consistent standard of quality and a high level of repeat accuracy. 

Industrial robots, many of which feature vision technology or other equipment, relieve factory personnel from tedious and dull production line tasks, resulting in increased productivity and product quality.

The robots eliminate downtime, reduce labour costs and provide a high return on investment. They can also operate 24 hours a day all year round.

18 Motoman robots make it possible for IKEA to produce an assembled, flat-packed "Billy" bookcase kit every 6 seconds! That is 40,000 units per week.

The robotic solution also helps save 20% in production costs. This video illustrates various handling and palletising applications. 



Press brake tending

Thanks to the modular program design and the gripper changeover system, the plant system implementation is very flexible and can be adapted to rapidly changing production requirements. 

A sensor system ensures high quality and the required protection against machine failure, processing errors, waste etc., enabling identical handling for every workpiece. The plant variant is subject to the size and weight of the component. Robots from the complete MOTOMAN ES and MOTOMAN HP series are selected accordingly. 

In this video two Motoman robots are used to deliver seamless automation for an Amada EMZ 3610 PDC punching machine and an Amada HFE 100.25 press brake. 

Benefits:

  • Improved efficiency
  • Suitable for small batch quantities due to MOTOMAN MotoBend offline programming software
  • Reduced dependence on manual labour



Assembly

Industrial robots may feature vision technology or other equipment, relieving factory personnel from tedious and dull production line tasks and resulting in increased productivity and product quality.

The robots eliminate downtime and provide a high return on investment. They can also operate 24 hours a day all year round. 

This video shows different types of Motoman robots, such as the traditional 6-axis articulated arm robot, the SCARA robot and a dual-arm robot working on a number of electronic component assembly applications, including:

  • Circuit board assembly
  • Soldering
  • Cable assembly
