ProFeeder robot cell series

    In 2015, EasyRobotics created ProFeeder, the first flexible and compact automated robot cell. In 2022 The ProFeeder robot unit cell was updated and now contains two types of robot cells with similar base and two different tabletops.

    ProFeeder Tray - a basic and universal automation unit with changeable, universal parts tray. The parts tray has 72 teardrop-shaped holes.  It is universal, and designed to accommodate all part types.

    ProFeeder Alu - a compact robot work cell, perfectly made for a great number of different applications for processing of all kinds of materials. The tabletop is made from 40' aluminium profile.

    Robot cell features

    Good investment
    • The typical return on investment is less than 1 year.
    Quick series changes
    • ProFeeder robot cell can be easily moved with a pallet-lifter.
    • Quick change over time makes ProFeeder suitable for small and medium production series.
    Increased efficiency
    • Automated supply to the CNC machine ensures consistent high quality. The required man-hours for operation can be reduced from 8 hours to less than 1 hour.
    PF Robot cell series can also be used for the following applications:
    • Machine tending
    • Polishing
    • Welding
    • Bin Picking
    • Assembly
    • Measurement
    The ProFeeder robot cell series are very useful for automating small and medium productions. They are flexible, reliable, have a small footprint and great functionality. Every ProFeeder can support 2-shift operations and within a year ROI can be achieved.

    Advantages and types of ProFeeder robot cell

    The ProFeeder comes with a collaborative robotic arm that allows organizations to have a uniformed robotic cell that ensures mobility inside the workplace. It helps in reducing the effort of designing, producing and installing a customized solution. The ProFeeder, modular robot cell, is created in three different stages as per the automation requirement of the manufacturing process.

    1. ProFeeder Light  It is best suitable for tasks that require urgent or additional completion of orders and is mostly used for small-scaled production to make the process more efficient.
    2. ProFeeder Stage 2 is for the small to medium-sized production that can operate on two-shift. Both the ProFeeder Light and ProFeeder are user-friendly, flexible, and compact.
    3. ProFeeder Multi  This stage is best suitable for large-scale productions, it is fully automated and operates on 4-shift.

    For large-series production lines, the manufacturer can opt for ProFeeder X as it is fully automated and supports 4-shift production. It can be used as a stationary solution that ensures ROI within 1.5 to 2 years. It is equipped with a lift module that helps in switching the trays that assist the parts in processing and as per the requirement, the trays can be expanded from 1 to 4 per mover.

    The small-series production can be easily operated with ProFeeder Table and ProFeeder Light as they support test production and urgent tasks, respectively. However, the part trays are required to change manually, and the movement is possible with the help of option heavy-duty wheels. The manufacturer can reach ROI within 6-8 months of timeframe.

    The decision to select the best robot cell for the manufacturing purpose depends on the size of the production series a factory is inclined to make. However, the inclusion of automation in the production process has made the operations efficient, flexible, and durable. Each ProFeeder element is designed to make manufacturers work easier and stress-free. As per the requirement of the business operation, the manufacturer can pick what suits them the best.

    CNC machines automation by robot cells

    Businesses in the machining industry are more and more often using automation of CNC machining services. It is supported by almost any kind of CNC machines, such as lathes, milling machines, and plasma cutting machines, and made in order to improve efficiency and simplify the CNC machining process. Not every CNC shop has enough space for conventional industrial robot solutions - most of them are big, expensive and hard to maintain. That's why collaborative robots in tandem with robot cells are a great solution for CNC machines automation.

    Collaborative robots have greater uptime and generate half more parts-per-hour than human employees. Robotic automation may boost CNC machining process output without exceeding budget restrictions. Feeder robots can work for hours without pauses. Part loading and unloading is easy without regular maintenance inspections, reducing downtime.

    Collaborative automation solutions have characteristics that enhance speed, productivity and worker safety while performing key jobs. CNC robothuman interactions in this case are absolutely safe and don`t need any extra fencing.

    The robot cell can be installed, set up and runned by personnel with minimal experience. It is only needed to place the robot cell in front of the CNC machine - fix it to the floor and connect to power and network.

    CNC robotics automation with a single robot cell can increase speed of machining services of the whole shop. During machining, a robot may be programmed to load another machine, standing opposite. Both operations can run concurrently, saving time and increasing productivity.

    The use of robots in CNC machining process guarantees uniformity. This helps organizations anticipate production durations and costs, which improves contracts pricing and facilitates the work with tenders.

    Collaborative robots are productive, easy to use, and affordable to use in CNC robotics automation. Undeniable advantages include improved consistency, higher quality and cheaper production costs. More and more business owners are understanding that and start adopting robots into their manufacturing and production operations.
