Deburring/Inspection Composite Equipment

Industry: Automobile / Mechanical parts
Process: Inspection, Deburring
Actuators: ISCA4 | Controller: XSEL

The multi-slider type orthogonal robot of the NS series has been adopted as equipment to remove burrs from machine parts.

One of the two Y-axes is used to deburr the parts, and the other with a camera attached is used to check if the deburring was successful.

By simultaneously processing and inspecting parts, it was possible to make the line compact.

In addition, it is possible to reduce labor expenses and stabilize quality by automating the tasks that had been done manually.

Film Feeder for Packaging Machine

Industry: Paper, film, construction material
Process: Cutting
Actuators: RCS2-SA7C-A-60-16-900 x2

In a packing machine, ROBO Cylinder was adopted for equipment that cuts packaging film to a set length.

As shown in the illustration above, two ROBO Cylinders are used to grab both ends of the film and send it out for cutting.

When air cylinders were used, it was not possible to synchronize the two, and film damage happened.

With the ROBO Cylinder, the synchronous function of the SSEL controller can be used to prevent film damage.

Inspection of switches for electronics

Industry: Electronic Components
Process: Inspection
Actuators: RCL-RA, TT-A2 (built-in controller)

The table top robot TT series and the Micro Cylinder RCL series have been adopted as inspection equipment for buttons on electronics.

First, the Micro Cylinder RCL performs a push motion to measure the height of the switch on the electronic device.

Then a set distance is moved back and forth to push every switch.

Previously, when using an electromagnetic solenoid, the z-axis had to be adjusted every time the product type changed.

The manual labor has been reduced after switching to the RCL.
