Regardless of their location or industry, manufacturers are demanding more from leak test equipment than ever before. Tough economic times and increased competition require companies to use equipment that not only provides accuracy and repeatability, but accommodates a wider variety of parts.
Kids have loved robots and toys for generations. The Rodon Group has decided that now is the perfect time for a robot named Baxter to help pack toys in the company’s highly automated manufacturing facility.
Sechan’s services include circuit board assembly, wiring harness assembly and final assembly. In addition, Sechan can act quickly to change the configuration of any product in terms of how it will be used in the field.
Premixed, ready-to-drink, functional beverages are certainly convenient, but that convenience comes with some trade-offs.
Robotic screwdriving offers numerous advantages to manufacturers, such as flexibility and repeatability. However, it’s easy to underestimate the requirements of automation. Sometimes, engineers specify the wrong type of robot or overlook parts feeding issues.
Several issues need to be addressed before there will be more widespread use of robotic screwdriving. Cost, robot design, training, culture and other factors must be considered by manufacturing engineers.
Robotic tool changers provide flexibility to robotic applications by enabling the robot to change end-effectors automatically (e.g.; grippers, vacuum cup tooling, pneumatic and electric motors, weld guns, etc.).
The original Creform System of pipe and joints has helped manufacturers build material handling structures that support lean and continuous improvement programs. Now, the addition of Creform 42mm pipe and joints makes it faster and easier to design and build these structures while building them stronger without extensive bracing.
Assemblers must work quickly while meeting strict quality requirements.
The facility was created by Lipson in 2001 to develop robots that “create and are creative. We explore novel autonomous systems that can design and make other machines automatically,” he points out.
