KV-Techniek offers automation solutions by means of industrial robots. Now you can think what is robotic automation and what is an industrial robot.
What is robot automation?
Robot automation is the automation of a repetitive action in the production process through the use of an industrial robot. An action that is currently still done manually can be taken over by a robot. Automation saves costs and increases productivity and continuity. In addition, the quality of the product, hygiene and safety within the company are better guaranteed. In addition, the quality of the product, hygiene and safety within the company are better guaranteed.
Industrial robots originate from the automotive industry. You now see more and more that companies outside the automotive industry that are interested in automating with a robot. The development in what a robot can do continues and is becoming more and more attractive from a price point of view. An industrial robot is able to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The advantages of an industrial robot is that it does not suffer from health factors and health and safety technical aspects. Think of a repetitive movement or lifting work that is difficult for people.
Applications with industrial robots
In collaboration with KV-Techniek you can use robots for various purposes. Some examples of this are:
- Pick and Place
Palletizing is the stacking of boxes or other items on a pallet. A pallet is taken from the stack and filled with the relevant goods by means of a robot. If
desired, it can be realized to use an intermediate sheet and it is also possible to stack several pallets on top of each other. The process takes into account
variation in the thickness of the pallets and there is a wide variety of box sizes.
Casepacking is placing smaller boxes in an outer box. An advantage of using a robot in such an application is that, for example, we can open the flaps of an American folding box by turning the robot while we place the products in the box. This is useful because he can now optimally fill the large box with the smaller boxes.
Pick and Place
At Pick and Place, the position of the product is often registered by applying a vision camera and this information is passed on to the robot. The robot takes the products from the belt and places them (for example) in a box. You can combine Pick and Place with quality controls, so that you are assured that only the best products are packed. The capacity of this form of automation is up to eighty strokes per minute, whereby the system can be expanded with several robots, so that advanced combinations are created.
