ProFeeder 3 steps towards automation

The ProFeeder robot cell from EasyRobotics - getting started with automation is now made simple

The modular robot cell can be built up in three stages, in line with your needs to increase automation in the production process.

Stage 1 ProFeeder Light increases efficiency and flexibility in production and makes it possible - unmanned, to run a small series production for example on urgent orders or additional orders.

The solution can be expanded to stage 2, ProFeeder, which increases efficiency in order to run small and medium series production in an automated two-shift operation on a CNC or milling machine. The ProFeeder Light and ProFeeder solutions are mobile, compact and easy to move around between machines with a pallet truck.

Stage 3, ProFeeder Multi is the stationary solution used in fully automated 4-shift operations and in the production of a large series.

ProFeeder is compatible with  robots from: ABB Robotics, Fanuc, KUKA Robotics,  Motoman and Universal Robots, and tested with, among others, the gripper from OnRobot.

ProFeeder contains mainly four elements.

Robot cell

The robot cell is the basic module of ProFeeder and provides a framework for the robot's location and it contains both the processed and unprocessed parts, either as a holder for the parts tray (ProFeeder Light) or as a station for the mover (ProFeeder and ProFeeder Multi).

The compact and mobile robot cell design  offers maximum flexibility in the  production. The robot can due to the design be placed on all three sides. The compact design ensures easy access to the production machines.

The ProFeeder Light and ProFeeder solution, the robot cell can be moved with a pallet truck.

The robot cell is supplied with a range of solutions for control panels, tables and fixtures, which makes it suitable for the construction of complete and fully automated assembly cells.

Parts trays

The parts trays have interchangeable perforated plates, they can accommodate all item types and can be replaced by thin plate feeding for edge bending.

The parts trays are easy to replace on both the basic module of ProFeeder Light and the mover.

Mover

The mover is used to transport the parts trays to and from the ProFeeder, it is easy to lead the mover into the robot cell even when all four parts trays are full.

The parts trays are automatically centred in the robot cell.

When upgrading from ProFeeder to ProFeeder Multi the mover is upgraded with an elevation- and displacement module.

ProFeeder Light

The ProFeeder Light robot cell consists of a basic module with 1 flexible manual removable parts tray designed for handling all types of parts.

ProFeeder

The ProFeeder robot cell consists of 1 basic module, 2 movers with 2 flexible part trays. The part trays are automatically entred, and are designed to accommodate all part types.

ProFeeder Q

ProFeeder Q is expanded with a lift module that automatically switches the trays with the parts to be processed. The capacity is increased from 1 to 4 parts trays per mover.
