Tending Automation - Midwest Engineered Systems

Machine Tending Project

MWES provided a die cast robot tending automation machine for hardware manufacturer that included a FANUC robot to tend to a new French Die Cast Machine and load the cast part into a Trim Press. The challenge of this project was to achieve an 18 second part to part cycle time.

MWES developed a complete solution that included a FANUC robot, robot accessories, a part verification stand, a dunk quench system, conveyors and chutes, a motorized turntable, safety features, and a controls system. The final die cast robot tending automation increased quality and efficiency. It also improved operator safety, error recovery, equipment maintainability, floor space utilization, overall system OEE, and scrap recovery.
