Single and Multiple Robotic Automation Systems

Typical applications of these types of robotic systems include welding, painting, assembly, disassembly, pick and place, packaging and labeling, palletising, product inspection as well as testing. All of these are accomplished with high endurance, speed and precision.

Rotary Indexing Systems

Rotray indexers provide the simplest means of transport between assembly and test stations. A machine built around a rotary indexer can be synchronous or asynchronous, depending on process and throughput requirements.

Rotary indexing motion can be powered directly by a servo motor or a fixed speed motor through a speed reducer and cam-controlled index box. For some applications, a servo motor can be used to provide a discreet number of stations or generally greater flexibility.

Whether standard rotary dial, double dial, precision ring, multi-tier dial or trunnion mount configuration, rotary index systems provide precision, simplicity, lower cost and a small footprint.

Assembly Lines

Expert’s assembly line solutions come from our extensive development of several different automation platforms. Whether rotary or in-line, each machine is designed with our customers requirement in mind.

Our iextensive industry knowledge has led us to develop a range of manufacturing platforms, basing strong emphasis on using standards to help us focus more on the manufacturing process and reduce our time to market.

Please contact the Expert team to discuss your requirements.

Palletised Systems and Indexing Systems

Palletised Covetors and indexing conveyors are particularly well-suited to medium and high-speed automation. Wherever a high part count or assembly process complexity is involved, these platforms provide sufficient space to fit multiple stations side by side.

As the tooling is located along the linear sections of the conveyor, machines with this type of transport media have excellent visibility and provide good access for maintenance.

Whether driven by a cam-controlled indexer or servomotor, the fixtures are advanced with precision. Typically, no extra hardware is required to locate fixtured parts before an operation is initiated.

Depending on your project requirements, we can deliver one of our standard platforms (sortimat Jetwing™ indexing chassis or sortimat Spaceline™ indexing chassis), or a customized solution based on precision belt or chain indexers.

Vision Systems

Through various methodologies, we use experienced machine vision engineering capabilities to enhance systems to their full potential. By implementing well-designed vision systems, machine process control and feedback is enhanced to provide the data needed to automate most processes.
