HIGHLY FLEXIBLE / EXPANDABLE
FeedLine is the solution for fragile components or processes with a cycle time longer than 15 seconds. It replaces fixtures with traditional conveyors, is very flexible and has no limits for size or weight of components.
FeedLine can be adapted for different kinds of machine tending, but can also be equipped with add-on options for deburring, air cleaning station, part marking, washing and quality control. New components are programmed in just a few minutes.
Components are placed manually on a conveyor belt that also functions as a buffer. FeedLine can be unmanned for long periods of time while the robot picks up components from the belt and feeds them on to one or more processing machines.
The system can be integrated into existing production lines where components come separated from each other. The robot can also place finished components directly onto pallets, sometimes with dividers
- Automates one to three machines
- Can handle all geometric shapes
- Handles complex and fragile components.
