Screw Driving & Feeding

Screw Driving & Feeding

Applications

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:

Using one of these 3 approaches to automating the screw assembly process, we are able to drastically reduce production times for our customers and end-users. Take a look at the difference in speed an assembly line can experience with automated screw driving:
Screw feeding

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:

Error Proof Screw Feeders - Sorting Jet

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.

Error Proof Screw Feeders - Qualifying Track

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.

Error Proof Screw Feeders - Optic Sensor

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.
