Assembly Automation Case Study

ASSEMBLY AUTOMATION CASE STUDY

Increase Production Capacity / Reduce Production Costs

LOUVER BLADE MANUFACTURING AUTOMATION

TW Automation was approached by an industry leading manufacturer about designing a new custom assembly automation system to expand production and improve part quality. To meet the customer’s requirements TW Automation’s team of engineers and technical staff designed and integrated four (4) robotic automation cells into existing equipment at a large louver blade manufacturing plant located in the Midwest.

Goals Of Assembly Automation

The goal for this new assembly system was to lower the production cost required for a highly repetitive process, increase production volumes and provide a boost in overall production control. TW Automation integrated FANUC robots, including FANUC SR-3iA & FANUC M-20iD. The other equipment and the required safety were also designed and integrated by TW Automation.

TW Automation builds robotic solutions for managing and growing your business. We’ve been delivering turn-key robotic solutions, along with a full range of technical and support services, since 1996.

Assembly Automation Process & Benefits

During each operation, the robot completes three work content steps:

  1. The first robot identifies and picks a louver blade from a roll former and places it into the drip-tray.
  2. Once dry the robot moves the part to the clip-press, where the clips will be placed on the louver blade.
  3. The robot then moves the part to the seal-pulling station, where a rubber seal is pulled through the metal louver.
  4. The robot then moves the part to the trimming station where excess rubber is trimmed to fit the part.
  5. The part is moved to the final clip-press station where the clips are pressed to hold the seal in place.
  6. Finally, the part is moved to the drilling station and packed nicely into the cart.
