Case Studies

Setup time optimisation and quick maintenance following a crash

Datum: 
09.12.09

The calibration time and the setup times for multiple robot portals need to be reduced.

more

Off-line programming of twelve axes

Datum: 
09.12.09

In a system for welding very large sub-assemblies, the programs generated off-line lead to deviations.

more

Arc welding with manual jig change

Datum: 
08.12.09

The cell setup needs to be readjusted frequently because of the very small lot sizes. The subsequent teach-in processes result in very long production stoppages.

more

Robot cell for quality testing

Datum: 
08.12.09

When robot cells are built for material testing, it is essential that the robot programs run consistently and that the sensor distance remains constant.

more

Inaccessible machine loading

Datum: 
08.12.09

When a highly complex cell that is difficult to access is relocated, it is essential to avoid long production stoppages.

more

Processing cast parts with many track points

Datum: 
08.12.09

On a cell for deburring cast parts, a point shift often occurs which leads to a long re-teaching process.

Mastering Motoman robots for water jet cutting

Datum: 
25.02.10

The robots that cut textiles for the automotive industry need to undergo frequent maintenance as a result of the high processing speeds.

more

Quick setup of off-line programs

Datum: 
25.02.10

To avoid the need to re-teach robot programs generated off-line, it is necessary to achieve an absolutely accurate calibration of the robots and to obtain exact tool and frame data.

Calibrating a vision system into car frame

Datum: 
26.02.10

On a production line for applying undercoating and seam sealant to car bodies, the goal is to enable new car models to be introduced without calling on external service providers.

more

Cloning production lines

Datum: 
26.02.10

Programs that were written for a production line applying PVC need to be run on a second line without any re-teaching.

more

Spot welding in body shells

Datum: 
26.02.10

On a welding line where a large number of different car bodies are produced, new models need to be introduced with as little downtime as possible.

more

Cloning milling cells

Datum: 
26.02.10

The robot cell for deburring turbine blades needs to be cloned so that time-consuming measurements do not need to be repeated on a second cell.

more

Fully backed up production line

Datum: 
26.02.10

To start all the robot programs on a production line from a single point, work objects and tools need to be measured as accurately as possible.

more

Applying sealant from a distance of 0.5 mm

Datum: 
26.02.10

When sealant is applied to the cylinder head of an engine, the nozzle moves only 0.5 mm above the surface.

more

Backing up complex machining cells

Datum: 
26.02.10

Two absolutely accurate robots that process endoscopes at a total of eight stations, need to be backed up.

more

Seam sealing and undercoating

Datum: 
26.02.10

When worn parts are replaced, the robot programs need to undergo re-teaching.

more

Precise direction of impact for milling applications

Datum: 
26.02.10

Parts are produced with a milling robot in a rapid prototyping procedure.

more

Machine loading with sensitive gripper

Datum: 
26.02.10

As the cell is very confined, work has to be done with a highly complex gripper which, in the event of a crash, cannot simply be replaced by a spare gripper.
