Whether a small footprint cell with a single functioning robot or part of a large complex cell with several multi-tasking robots, ABCO can design and build a robotic dispensing solution to meet virtually any needs, in any industry. Robotic dispensing is ideal for delivering substances, such as adhesives, sealants, and lubricants, evenly and precisely in pre-determined locations despite complex contours or curves. Because the robot dispenser expels a consistent amount of material each time, manufacturers gain several advantages, including:
When designing and building a system, we understand that every client’s facility and production requirements are different, so we factor in the application, product, payload, reach, end-of-arm tooling, speed, facility layout, and floor space into original designs. No matter what the dispensing design, we take an inefficient and hazardous process and convert it into a clean, simple, and productive operation.
Design and build a comprehensive glass encapsulating production line. The cell’s primary function is to automatically apply a pre-mixed primer on the perimeter of a piece of glass, then process the glass through several phases, including pre-curing, final curing, pre-heat, and post-molding cool down.
Large Robot Dispensing System Components:
The KUKA KR 16 robot is a 6-axis robot with a maximum payload of 35 lbs. and a reach of 5′. This highly complex robot is used for applications where challenging robot programming is needed for specialized motion paths or with the interaction vision systems.
Design and build a small footprint dispensing system that accepts manual feeding of covers, dispenses a bead of sealant, provides vision to verify bead position, width, and height.
Small Robot Dispensing System Components:
Fanuc LR-Mate is a compact six-axis mini robot for precise bead placement and high performance dispensing technology. This mini robot has the approximate size and reach of a human arm, minimizing any interference to outlying devices while allowing operation in narrow or confined spaces.
