    Machine tending automation case story @ Oakridge fabrication

    The machine maintenance process at Oak Ridge was carried out completely manually. After the introduction of automated solutions based on ProFeeder robot cells, the company's productivity has increased several times.

    According to one of the operators, Eric Kanz, he can now alone do the work of several people. At the same time, the downtime of CNC machines was significantly reduced and an additional night shift was implemented - all this made it possible to increase productivity and increase profits!

With collaborative robot from Universal robotics and Shmalz Area vacuum gripper FXCB mounted it can easily handle both cardboard boxes and sheets of thick paper. A truly universal solution for fast and efficient palletizing and depalletizing.

    ProFeeder X automation case from Cobot Solutions @ Wefag AG

    In this case we can see machine tending automation, performed with help of a ProFeeder X robot-cell by our valuable partner Cobot Solutions, from Switzerland. The robot-cell is located near a CNC machine with Doosan collaborative robot and a gripper from Onrobot. The setup is located @ Wefag AG - the swiss company providing a number of CNC machining services.

    FT-Produktion AB case study

    A Swedish supplier of metal parts made a second working shift and increased productivity by 2 times

    Because of automation, FT-Produktion, was able to accommodate orders with much higher volumes and shorter delivery times. With the help of a Profeeder cobot cell, FT-Produktion is now able to handle more orders and make faster deliveries. The investment paid for itself in just nine months by helping the company to attract more customers and bigger orders. The setup includes the ProFeeder robot cell, UR5 cobot from Universal Robots, two RG2 robot grippers from OnRobot.

    EME Hydraulic

    EME installs EasyRobitics ProFeeder

    EME Hydraulic has invested in a ProFeeder from EasyRobotics. The company CEO, Jesper Østergaard, is extremely pleased with the resulting improvements in efficiency. “We have gone from a 16-hour manning to 2-hour manning for the function the ProFeeder is now performing. We produce cylinders for agriculture and industry. We purchased a robot solution from EasyRobotics in order to free up some staff. Before, we had to man the machine for 16 hours, but after we introduced the robot we only need manual input for two hours daily. This means that we can now focus more on value added tasks, while the robot does the repetitive work" says Jesper Østergaard from the machine factory in Egernsund with 15 employees. With the ProFeeder as a first step, he has plans to further increase automation in the future, with the next project already on the drawing board. In the short video you can see Jesper Østergaard explaining more about the benefits of ProFeeder.

    EasyDoor with ProCobots

    Positive Results:

    Cycle time and reliability are the main advantages of using EasyDoor. Reliability is a big issue. Due to the collaborative nature of the cobots, they can easily fault when opening or closing the door if it senses any stickiness or changing force requirements. “sticky doors” can cause a jerking action that faults the robot. On the other hand, a very smooth door moves freely and can bounce back upon reaching the fully opened or fully closed position and cause a fault.
    • Easy connection between the feeder cell, robot, and the automated EasyDoor
    • Faster process
    • Multiple loading parts
    • No human intervention
    • Time cycle increased
    • Implementation on running CNC machines
