Robotic Automations

When there are multiple pieces to a window assembly, it may make sense to automate a complete work cell to assemble a window. For this application we were assembling a rear slider for a pick-up truck. This incorporated a conveyor fed work cell where a robot would pick up the raw glass, and place it into a priming station where the robot would prime the windows. From there the material handling robot would place it in a cure rack to let the primer cure. From there the robot takes it to a bonding station.

Priming glass can be a very labor intensive process, but with new technology it can be done with very few operators. This particular robotic priming system is programmed to run 10 different windows. They vary in size, but are all rear quarter windows for an SUV. A camera overhead inspects the primer path to check for defects. This work cell also incorporated an accumulating conveyor to let the primer cure.

This particular work cell inspected parts, and packed them into totes. There were multiple cameras, a bowl feeder, a robot, as well as a couple conveyors.

This particular machine assembled a windshield for Ford. It applied an elkamet, seal, 2 solder terminals, and 2 rubber bumpers. This cart operated stand alone, or in a robotic work cell.
