Motoman Robots Handling and Press Tending

Flexible system uses 10 Motoman HP50 robots to load/unload automotive body interior structural component stampings on a five-press tandem line. (Graphic illustrates only three of the five presses)Automotive Body Components

Robotic press tending system meets all project challenges and meets or exceeds project goals. System easily achieves required cycle time rates of 575 pph for small parts, 525 pph for medium parts, and 450 pph for large parts. Highly flexible robotic system can be reconfigured as two “semi-independent” lines (dual-line configuration).
