Screw Driving & Feeding
Our systems enable complete or partial automation of assembly processes involving the driving of screws into OEM parts.
Whatever your application, we have a solution.
That’s why we’ve developed a line of CoBot screwdrivers specifically for HRC. With the onset of new Collaborative Robotics technology in the screw fastening industry, your production line workers can now work directly with robots – resulting in more efficient assembly processes.
For more than 30 years, we have been the screw automation industry’s leading experts when it comes to engineering solutions for any and every application – simple or complex. Although an out-of-the-box solution is rate, there are typically 3 approaches to the automation of screw assembly processes:
Every application is different, and if you’ve been in the industry for as long as we have, you know that it’s rare that any two particular applications are the same.
That’s why we excel at engineering custom bespoke engineering solutions that are tailored to your specific application – whether it’s in automotive manufacturing, aerospace engineering, or even a micro-sized consumer electronics application. We have solutions for all industrial screw automation needs.
Sometimes, manufacturers aren’t looking to reinvent the wheel – they just want to upgrade an old system with new tech. For applications where our screw assembly machines must be integrated into existing systems, our engineers will make sure that everything is technically sound in terms of software, hardware, and engineering excellence.
Our screw feeding and presenting systems are engineered to work non-stop without jams, errors, and with minimal maintenance.
Because a fully-automated production facility needs a reliable screw feeding system they can depend on.
There are many different scenarios in which a CoBot robotic screw driving system could be employed in order to achieve an optimized assembly workflow – here are a few examples of CoBot applications in every-day manufacturing environments:
Step 1: Sorting Air Jet
The first step in our 3-step fastener verification is our Non-Adjustable Sorting Air jet – a highly pressurized stream of air that ejects misaligned fasteners from the track - our first line of defense.
Step 2: Qualifying Track Cover:
The second step is a Non-Adjustable Bowl Track Qualifying Cover, which prevents misaligned fasteners from passing underneath its clearance and moving down the escapement track in the first place.
Step 3: Optic Sensor
When the optic sensor notices that the escapement is full of screws, the step feeder's screw elevator will stop lifting fasteners to the track. This prevents back pressure and jams in the feeder tray.
