Working with our customer during ongoing process development during the design and build of the machine, JR created a solution to meet all requirements. The JR solution uses a material handling robot to pick a fixture from a rack and present it to an operator for part loading. The robot then presents it to the weld gun. This method reduces part changeover from hours to seconds, while ensuring future product lines will only require additional fixtures.
The robot does the heavy lifting—this full automation solution needs only one operator. Additionally, this flexible JR process reduces the overall number of fixtures, weld points per part type, and number of weld tips from 20 to 1. Finally, full automation increases consistency, and our carefully researched weld power supply improves quality across various metals.
