ABB Robots Help CIREX Foundry Increase Capacity by 50%

Precision parts are what CIREX is all about. The company's cast iron foundry makes the actual castings. The 14-step process starts with injection moulding, which creates a wax model of the product and an extension that allows them to be placed on a tree. An IRB 2400 robot removes the moulds and creates the tree, each of which can carry up to about 80 moulds. These trees allow other robots to...

Robotics Automation for the Wire Industry

Highlighting the important reasons supporting the deployment of robotic automation technology in the manufacturing sector, this paper presents robotics as a contributor to improving manufacturing efficiencies. It reviews the gradual shift from an industrial to a service-based economy, resulting in technical labor shortages, while detailing the benefits of using robots. The latest robot models handling material faster and more accurately than a human, at an affordable cost for the small to mid size business are featured, and the easy and inexpensive customization associated with robots, as well as energy savings is mentioned. The paper also covers numerous robot applications in the wire industry, and includes a chart showing robot sales accounted by the North American robotic companies.
