A feeding solution to feed 10 different metal parts simultaneously | Case Study
The challenge: feeding metal parts
- Manage 10 different metal components simultaneously.
- Be able to adapt change production and manage an additional 10 parts, for a total of 20 different components.
- Maintain a compact layout.
- Minimize waste, increase efficiency, reduce production time and operating costs.
- Two FlexiBowl® 800 feeders equipped with a 5-sector disk, for the simultaneous feeding of ten different metal components.
- An ABB 6-axis robot with an integrated vision system to increase the precision of the process.
- Adopt an innovative hopper arrangement for a controlled and orderly unloading process.
- An optimized production layout with a reduction in machinery investment.
- High precision and a reduced error rate for a reliable and efficient production process.
- Flexibility to adapt quickly to market needs and the introduction of new products.
- The elimination of the need to install customized machines for each type of component.
