Automation Solution & Benefits
The four FANUC robots were integrated with a custom tube seam finding station designed by TW Automation, two new BLM tube benders, two customer furnished tube flattening presses, two TW Automation custom designed inspection stations and four “hot swap” material handling cart stations designed by TW Automation.
Each cart has 100 storage locations and material handlers can move carts in & out of the cell without stopping the robots during production. The inspection stations can measure up to 21 conformance characteristics for each completed tube. The cell has the capacity to produce and rack two (2) completed formed tubes every 24 seconds. Calculated ROI payback = 16 months.
