  • LASER WELDING

Automating the loading and unloading of your machines using Kinemetrix Agile Automation Solutions has the following benefits:

  • Quick changeover for low volume/high mix production runs
  • Fully integrated systems for unattended operation and multiple shift production
  • Infeed parts presentation solutions for any part
  • A wide range of inspection techniques to detect out-of-spec parts and processes quickly
  • Upstream and downstream processes such as cleaning, finishing and assembly can be integrated

FLEXIBILITY

Anticipating future production changes is challenging. Kinemetrix Agile Machine Tending solutions are designed with flexibility in mind to:

  • Address low volume/high mix production runs requiring rapid changeovers
  • Fit any size operation from job shops to large manufacturing operations. These systems can be expanded as production volumes increase
  • Be easily relocated on mobile docking bases
  • Match your application requirements by using floor-mounted, collaborative or overhead rail mounted robots

SMALL PARTS PRESENTATION

Simple Feeding:

Standard small parts presentation methods can be deployed including:

  • Vibratory Bowls & Tracks
  • Tray Feeders
  • Step Feeders
  • Brush Feeders
  • Centrifugal Feeders
  • Chutes

Custom Feeding:

Agile Feeding solutions utilizing robots, machine vision and clever mechanical design are able to handle a wide variety of parts. Find out more here.

Robotic Bin Picking can reduce material handling costs by allowing robots to pick parts directly from totes and bins. 3D vision and sophisticated path planning are used to guide the robot. Find out more here.

LARGE PARTS PRESENTATION

Kinemetrix can design and integrate different methods to present large parts to your machines including:

  • Conveyors
  • Positioners
  • Shuttles
  • Pallet Feeders

 

PART MARKING AND TRACKING

Our machine tending systems will track your parts and add serial numbers and lot codes using technologies such as:

  • Laser Marking
  • Pin Stamping
  • Inkjet Printing
  • Print and Apply Labeling

INSPECTION & TEST

Automated in-process inspection is necessary to avoid passing defective parts to the next operation. Parts can be inspected both before and after the machine. Kinemetrix has experience developing all types of inspection and test solutions. Find out more here about the variety of automated inspections that are available.

PART OUTFEED

Custom part outfeeds can be designed and integrated including:

  • Conveyors
  • Part Storage Racks
  • Packaging Lines
  • Palletizing Systems
  • Dunnage Handling

Robots can be equipped with multiple end-of-arm-tools to pass parts from one operation to the next, minimizing floorspace and hardware costs.
