Automated robot cell solution

Working towards full turn-key solutions, Brown and Holmes supplies fully automated robot cell solutions. They can include bowl feeders, conveyors, automated linear slideways alongside standard machine tools. In this example we created a plan view of the 2-machine cell (this can be expanded to suit any number of machine tools a customer requires) to design the optimum output and space layout. A series of 3D illustrations were then developed for customer approval before the cell was created. It included:

  • Perimeter guarding for fully automatic operation
  • 7th axis for multiple operations using one robot reducing hardware costs
  • Hopper feed for autonomous running
  • Output conveyor for finished parts
  • 6 axis robot with multiple gripper for increased output
  • Vision system used to verify part tolerances

As the client wanted a complete solution, Brown and Holmes sourced the components as well as installing and commissioning the automated robot cell.
