  • In a system for performing the alignment of some resin blocks, the ROBO Cylinder was adopted. The company’s products include designer plates to be used on the floor of a house by bonding resin blocks.
  • Previously, an air cylinder was used, this was changed to ROBO Cylinder which improved the cycle time and reduced the occurrence of Choco-Tei events.
  • When air cylinder was used
    Because the resin blocks were misaligned by the impact of the air cylinder stop, they were operating it at a reduced speed. However, Choco-Tei was still occurring about 10 times a day because of the misalignment due to unstable speed. To rearrange the resin block and to recover from Choco-Tei, it took about 1 minute.
  • After changing to ROBO Cylinder
    By replacing air cylinder to ROBO Cylinder, and adjusting the pressing force and acceleration/deceleration, they could increase the operating speed while minimizing the impact at the time of stop. In addition, Choco-Tei was reduced to near zero.

Heat Exchanger Hole Size Confirmation Application Example

Inspection / Examination / Etc.
Heat Exchanger Hole Size Confirmation Application Example
Robot TT-A3-4040
Controller Built-in SEL controller
  • The process of checking the sizes of the holes in a heat exchanger is a successful example of reducing labor costs by shortening the cycle time.
  • The heat exchanger is an aluminum plate of 1mm thickness that has 900 vacant holes. The pitch of the 4mm diameter holes needs to be accurate. If the hole position deviates from this fixed pitch distance, failure will occur when passing the piping through the holes in the subsequent manufacturing process step.
  • Previously, the holes were visually inspected by a person one by one which took 45 minutes to test an entire heat exchanger.
  • As a result of switching to the tabletop robot to perform this inspection process, the operator can perform other duties after pressing the button to start the robot.
  • The labor costs to produce 20 units reduced from $270 to only $31 thus saving $57,460 a year in labor costs.
