Robotic Integration for Manufacturing and Assembly Operations

The use of robotic integration in your process, as a stand-alone robotic cell or an integrated line, can have a very financially beneficial impact on your manufacturing or assembly operations. From consistent and increased throughput to improved and consistent quality, to a potential reduction in employee lost work hours and downtime are just a few reasons to consider. Adding a robotic cell(s) can allow for a better-trained workforce that focuses more on complex assemblies rather than simple ones.

As a Fanuc Authorized System Integrator, we have the experience of working with most styles of robots, from Articulated to Delta, and industrial to service styles. Our engineering and machine-build team tirelessly work to design, build, and fully integrate the cell(s), surpassing expectations.

Using robotic integration to increase efficiency in palletizing.
Palletizing Contact Us Button

Palletizing

Integrating robotic palletizing can be one of the most beneficial automation process implemented. Palletizing can be very tedious, strenuous, and manual work for the most dependable worker. The repetitive nature can cause:

  • Inefficiencies
  • Health risks
  • Unwanted downtime
  • Labor shortages
  • Higher per piece cost

But with a properly designed robotic integration, you can begin maximizing throughput and utilizing your employees in a more challenging position.

Once we understand your process, we can:

  • Maximize output with a proper flow
  • Use the quality components to increase uptime
  • Install the proper hardware so you can utilize workers in more challenging positions
  • Proper programming to provide consistent results

We work across industries and focus on your specific process to design and implement a custom solution to fit your goals. Get a no-cost, hassle-free consultation from an experienced Flores Automation Project Manager or Engineer: 262-682-4229, or use our Quick Contact form.

Robot tending to CNC machine.
Machine Tending Contact Us Button

Machine Tending

Machine tending can be dangerous and repetitive work and finding qualified labor is increasingly difficult. From machine loading/unloading, spec checks, labeling, inspection to tool changing, integrating robotic machine tending can improve efficiency, output, and quality.

Machine tending will provide a consistency that manufacturers can rely on. Depending on your short- and long-term goals are, we will work with you to identify the best possible machine tending solution. If you require multiple actions, have limited space, miscellaneous shapes, we provide the versatility and experience to help you increase your bottom line.

Making efficient use of robotics in machine welding.

Welding

A customized, robotic welding cell is ideal for a company that is looking to grow, improve quality, and/or reduce production costs. The robotic welding cell can be more precise, produce a better-quality weld, will continuously work without fatigue, and can weld in places and conditions someone from your team cannot go.

When reviewing what you want your automated welding cell(s) to complete, also review the necessary fixtures that are needed. While working with you through the process, we may be able to completely redesign the fixture to work with multiple pieces. This can eliminate downtime due to switchovers, further increase the efficiency of the weld cell, and allow for smaller custom runs that were previously thought unprofitable.

Our objective is to provide the most accurate and reliable welds for you. Whether it is an arc, spot, or MIG welding, it is our overall goal to exceed your expectations for reliability, performance, quality, and value.

Pick and place delta robot
Pick & Place Contact Us Button

Pick and Place

The more the assembly/manufacturing line is in operation, the more pieces are produced. As demand increases, you may encounter production challenges like:

  • Line speed increases to meet the demand
  • May need to hire more workers
  • Employee fatigue can become a factor
  • Potential increase in errors
  • Older equipment may breakdown or cannot handle an increase in production

By taking a comprehensive approach to understanding the shape and complexity, a robotic pick and place can work with your assembly/manufacturing process. We can create a seamless integration that will:

  • Utilize the appropriate EOA
  • Incorporate proper vision hard and software
  • Reduce overall per piece cost through automation
  • Maximizing uptime to keep production goals met

Advanced Vision & Inspection Contact Us Button

Advanced Vision and Inspection

Relying on human visual inspection alone can potentially compromise output quality and efficiencies. No matter how good the inspector is, errors can and will happen. This can cause some of the following issues:

  • Failure in the field
  • Recalls
  • Increasing costs
  • Declining quality

By adding a robotic integrated vision and inspection cell, you can improve your inspection capabilities. Because of the increasing visual technology, you can:

  • Create tighter tolerances
  • Inspect smaller measurements
  • Reduce operator stress
  • Increase overall inspection rates
  • Have instantaneous notifications

We design End of Arm (EOA) for various types of robots.
End of Arm Tooling Contact Us Button

End of Arm Tooling

The robotic integration is only as good as the end of the arm attachment. It is the key to the successful implementation and operation of the application.

We place a strong emphasis on designing the best attachment for your specific process. The custom-engineered end effector that is designed for you will help ensure that the speed, accuracy, and quality standards are met.
