The robot uses a custom designed magnetic EOAT (End of Arm Tool) to pick multiple parts from a pallet and present them into a blast cabinet for finishing. The operator loads one of 12 pallets with a tray of unfinished parts then selects the specific processing program from the touch screen operator panel.
The pallets automatically index into and out of the cell as they are processed by the robot and the blast cabinets.
This custom designed robotic cell is used for shot blasting a surface finish on very small parts.
- Conception of cell that meets unique production requirements.
- Create SolidWorks© 3D models of cell concept
- End Of Arm Tooling (EOAT) Design Integrated w/ a custom designed magnet lifting mechanism.
Operator and Maintenance Training
Utilizes FANUC© M10iB robot with R30iA controller.
Parts are delivered into the cell via the circular pallet conveyor.
Ability to control all blast variables:
- Presentation (angle and distance)
Provides a fully automatic processing cell that requires minimal operator involvement.
Ability to pick variable part sizes for presentation to the blast.
The operator has easy access to the process control via the custom programmed touch screen operator interface panel.
