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.
Devices and technology are getting smaller. Even with growing screen sizes, internal components are constantly getting thinner.
In tough economic times it is even more important to find efficient, cost effective ways to improve assembly processes and to make sure they save you time and money.
In today’s industrial manufacturing environment, companies place a premium on process improvement focused on maximizing quality and productivity while minimizing energy consumption and total cost of ownership.
Using Automated Screw Feeder Systems can increase production dramatically during peak time using the same labor force.
Maximizing the fastening process by implementing an error-proofing strategy reduces costs, increases throughput and minimizes assembly errors.
DEPRAG has recently introduced a Flow Form Screwdriving system (FFS) onto the market (aka flow-drill FDS).
Manufacturers in many industries are reshoring their assembly lines. Several factors are behind this phenomenon, including the ability to automate assembly tasks that traditionally used manual or semiautomated fastening equipment.
