In the industrial world, being able to manufacture a machine at a reasonable price isn't enough, you have to keep improving it and making it more competitive. When this type of machines is employed in mass production, the time needed to load and unload the materials affects productivity. The objective is to limit the machine's downtime as much as possible and shorten the work process to save time and increase productivity.
Again, Tecoi was able to rely on FANUC's expertise in this context. It provided a robot to load and unload the parts and automate the process. To unload finished parts, the robot has been fitted with a claw that has 40 independent suction cups and depending on the parts it has to unload, it has the exact information it needs to automatically pick them up and place them on pallets ready for packing.
Bevel cut parts don't come out directly and require a little manoeuvring to be picked up and piled. Before picking up each part, the robot is provided with the information it needs to recognize it and operate the appropriate suction cups to pick it up.
