This case is about the CNC machine’s loading and unloading requirements. We provide our client with a one-to-two picking and placing a solution. This solution combines with the ABB’s six-axis robotic arm and feed system.
Due to the long processing time of the customer’s CNC materials, it is not economical to have one operator with one machine. The ABB robotic arm replaces the shift operators, extending the 16-hour operation time of the CNC machine to 24 hours. The customer demand includes :
Robotic-arm loading and unloading accuracy.
Two CNC machines need to be able to handle different workpieces.
Two CNC machines can handle different workpieces with an automatic feeding tray, significantly improving production efficiency and reducing machine adjustment time. We use ABB six Axis robotic arm (model) and air-jet assembly system to avoid iron filings remaining on the workpiece, affecting the quality of the finished product.
