Assembly Cell & Robot Cell Solutions

TQC have recently performed a number of sophisticated robot cell systems for several demanding applications. The projects have ranged from the use of proprietary robot units to the development of a large, complex gantry robot system.

TQC have provided multi robot production lines and single robot workstations in different applications, ranging from automotive parts manufacture and modification, transfer of green state ceramic components to high precision automation at high speeds.

One significant project involved designing several single robot cells to automate the assembly of a small electrical handset.  An operator loads the bottom casing (containing the PCB) and top casing into the jig section within the assembly cell, which then automatically closes, clipping  the two parts of the handset together. In this assembly cell the robot picks four screws from the bowl feeder and drives them into place in the handset, one at a time.  This machine cell produces a complete handset every 12 seconds.  The complete robotic production system incorporated four robot cells. 

A more bespoke application TQC supplied was for a facility that had a working envelope of 6 meters x 4 meters x 2.5 meters. The end effector (gripper) was specially designed to transfer delicate "green state" ceramic components together with 3 other parts and assemble. The gripper transfers 12 items at a time stacking them accurately onto a surface of varying heights & attitude. This system incorporated a reconfigured robot unit. The drawing to the right, shows the new configuration of the main elements. Associated with this unit is a pallet magazine, multiple transport conveyors and an elevation unit bringing product from a level 4 metres above. TQC was responsible for the successful integration of the complete system including the designing of vacuum formed trays and other product storage.

Both of the above systems were integrated into factory wide SCADA systems on an Allen Bradley platform.

TQC welcomes the opportunity to design and manufacture complete automation systems to customer specifications.
