Custom Designed Robotic Cell for Adhesive Application within the Automotive & Appliance Industry

MJ Engineering custom designed and built a portable robotic cell for the automotive and appliance industries. This robotic cell is used for applying a single part epoxy to both automotive and appliance components. Based off a customer supplied 2D, Auto CAD print, we first created Solidworks 3D models of the cell, ensuring that the design met all of our client's unique product requirements. We also designed the end of arm tooling (EOAT) which possessed built-in temperature control capabilities.

In addition, MJ Engineering also designed and built the epoxy delivery system, which included a number of unique components and features, such as a high-pressure main valve, flexible tubing, and a high-pressure rotary union and metering valve. The cell meets tight tolerances for placement of the adhesive. The cell size is 48-in wide, 48-in deep and 84-in high.

Once assured that our custom designed robotic cell fulfilled all of our customer's precise product requirements, we then installed this unit in our client's facility in Coshocton, Ohio. This robotic cell was ready to start up immediately after installation was complete. We also provided our client with comprehensive hard copy and electronic documentation for this unit.

This portable robotic cell contained multiple controlled heating zones for constant viscosity of epoxy delivery, consistent bead size from tray to tray, and changeable epoxy nozzles for specific applications. This cell also allowed for controlled bead of epoxy in tight tolerance patterns on stamped metal parts, providing a speed and consistency that is not capable with traditional manual procedures.

Our robotic cell additionally allowed for storage and easy retrieval of multiple programs, which helps eliminate set-up time for operators. Our automated robotic cell provided our clients higher quality products in reduced production time.
