Manufacturers face a lot of challenges these days. Labor shortages, short product life cycles, small-volume/large variety orders and ever frequent changeovers can cause major headaches. But to overcome these hurdles, we can implement smart, agile and flexible workstations to shorten production time and enhance efficiency. That’s why Industrial robots are the perfect addition to achieve fast and precise automated production in a range of conditions.
Yet implementing industrial robot production, is no easy task. For example, in assembly and screw driving processes, it’s difficult to manually lift a robotic arm with its heavy base. On the other hand, manual screw driving and assembly is inconsistent and leads to low production efficiency and quality.
To solve this issue, Delta came up with a smart solution that achieves automated assembly and screw driving for robotic arms by integrating the Articulated Robot DRV Series, SCARA Robot DRS Series, a screw driving module and Delta Machine Vision System DMV Series. We’ve successfully implemented this solution in our own plants and are enjoying drastic improvements in our quality, flexibility and productivity.
Our industrial robots do assembly and screw driving in the following process:
- The servo-driven slides feed in the base, with the first and second arm going into a fixture. Then the DRV Series assembles the base and arms with the assembly module.
- During this process, the DMV Series inspects the holes for screw driving, and guides the DRS Series to pre-screw two screws that fix the semi-finished products.
- Meanwhile, the DRV Series allows quick replacement of the assembly module with a screw driving module so the robot arms can perform screw driving with the DRS Series.
- Finally, the servo system discharges the fixture to complete the assembly.
