Custom Assembly Systems to Suit Semi-Automatic or Automatic Operations
From lean semi-automatic assembly stations to large synchronous precision indexing machines, ABCO designs and builds assembly equipment to meet specific client needs, adhere to the budget, and deliver on-time. ABCO recognizes that not all operations can be fully automated—whether the part or assembly process is difficult to automate—so we can design and build a semi-automatic system that not only improves the manufacturing process but retains operator assistance as a key resource in the process. We can also design and build fully automated assembly systems that cover the entire process from automatic loading and assembly transfers to testing, inspecting, packing and unloading. Regardless of the assembly system type, above anything else, we strive to design and build a system that delivers a quick return on investment. ABCO uses a broad range of technologies in its equipment, including:
Laser and ultrasonic welding
Machine vision for inspection and positioning
Poke yoke error-proofing along with downtime
Put ABCO’s experienced Design Build team to work creating a safe, reliable, and robust semi-automated or automated assembly equipment. We aim at providing high-quality solutions with competitive pricing and lead times.
MOTOR/FAN HOUSING ASSEMBLY SYSTEM
Application Criteria: Design and build a motor/fan housing assembly system that would improve the quality and efficiency of two production processes for a professional trimmer product line. Perform multiple operations, such as picking, placing, and assembling, from a single robot.
Motor/fan Housing Assembly System Components:
FANUC M-10iA robot with a two-camera guidance package and custom end effector
FANUC LR Mate 200iC robot with custom dual gripper type end effector
Two indexing belt infeed conveyors: for fan and gas tank
Vibratory bowl feeder
Pneumatically actuated tubing feed and cut mechanisms
Two gravity chutes
The FANUC LR Mate 200iC is a tabletop size robot with a slimmer arm profile, lighter weight and offers the highest dexterity, faster sustained speed and superior positioning accuracies, making it the ideal robot for a variety of applications including assembly.
The FANUC M-10iA robot boasts the highest wrist movements and inertia in its class with a payload capacity of 10 kg or 22 lbs. With a wrist interference radius of only 110 mm or 4.33 inches, the M-10iA is about easy access into narrow spaces and easy integration into narrow spaces and small cells.
