Case Studies: Material Handling
Within this system, we designed and built several fully automated continuous motion systems which apply a powder coating to both sides of a tape product, feed and prepare containers for the tape, load the tape into the containers and seal the containers with a lid.
This large cell automatically creates large sheets of fiberglass through a process of feeding individual sheets of fiberglass, one at a time, coating them with a layer of resin, and then stacking them on top of each other to move into a large press.
To increase the machine’s speed, a servo-driven ball screw was used to replace the air-over-oil cylinder. Previously, this cylinder proved to be a bottleneck when pushing the machine to its limits.
