Assembly

Are Your Employees Manually Twisting, Pushing, or Pulling Parts or Tools?

Assembly operations are typically filled with tasks that require repetitive motion such as twisting, pushing, and pulling which can lead to ergonomic sprains and strains for your employees.  Repetitive assembly tasks can also result in inconsistent production output and product quality due to the monotony of the process.  Automating your screw driving, inserting, mounting, and positioning operations can help you quickly eliminate these ergonomic and production challenges.

Evaluating your process, the components, and machines or other devices in the work cell helps to identify the automation equipment required to accomplish the task.  Through the integration of system components including a robot, sensors, cameras, and end-of-arm tooling, we can complete the assembly process efficiently and consistently. The robotic cell can repeatedly:

  • Locate and sort components

  • Pick them up with the appropriate amount of force

  • Place them precisely in the assembly

 

Automating your repetitive, dull assembly tasks will allow your employees to focus on more difficult, value-added activities that require human intervention.  Manufacturers are also reporting the following benefits thanks to the automation of these processes:

  • Increased production speed

  • Improved product quality

  • Reduced production costs

  • Quick and easy redeployment to new assembly tasks

We understand the challenges you’re facing and can guide you through your automation project, setting your material handling applications up for success.  We’ll help you evaluate your processes and select the mobile robot and equipment that best fits your workflow requirements.
