Industrial Tool &
Die builds robotic cells to perform a variety of functions including parts
transferring, material handling, headrest production, resistance welding, and
clip assembly. Our robotic cells offer increased flexibility, such as
being able to run families of parts in a single machine as well as the ability
to add additional parts or operations to the cell in the future. We are an
authorized Fanuc Robotics
integrator. The below pictures are robotic cells that we have
built. Please contact
us for more information regarding our robotic cells.
solid model of a robotic mat assembly cell.
The cell features a six-station index dial. All components of the mat assembly are automatically
dispensed into the transfer dial. Three
clip guns are mounted to the robot to assemble the mat. The completed mat assembly is vision-inspected before
exiting the cell. Production
rate of 500 parts per hour.
cell to form, broach, and post-form car seat headrests. The cell is loaded with precut tubes. The tubes are formed using a servo-controlled bending unit
with integrated laser correction. The
laser correction system insures that each formed tube is to
specification before continuing through the cell.
The robot transfers the formed tube into a broach station, where
notches are broached into the headrest legs.
The robot then transfers the tube into a press station, where the
tube is post-formed. Last,
the robot removes the completed headrest from the cell. Production rate of 275 parts per hour.

basket frame cell. The cell
feeds rectangular frames thru a crosswire welder, where two crosswires
are welded into the frame at programmable positions.
The robot then transfers the frame into a trimmer, where excess
crosswire length is trimmed. The
robot then transfers the welded frame to a transfer nest. From the transfer nest, the second robot places the frame
into a press. After the
press operation, the second robot transfers the frame into a welder to
complete the part. Production
rate of 275 parts per hour.
bender/buttwelder with robotic transfer into a form press.
The cell is loaded with precut wires.
A hopper dispenses the wires into a fully adjustable frame
bender/welder. After the
bend/weld operations, the robot transfers the formed and welded frame
into a press for a post-form operation.
The robot then transfers the completed part into the customerís
piece of equipment for final assembly.
Production rate is 275 parts per hour.
