The automotive industry is in dire need of workers. To meet demand in a labor shortage, OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers turn to robotics and vision for automated assembly lines that protect human employees from hazardous conditions while completing tasks quickly.
JR Automation has the experience and expertise to deliver automated and manual assembly systems for subassembly and final assembly operations. We can help you plan and install conveyance, operator-assisted tooling, material handling systems, or fully robotic systems to achieve your assembly challenges.
JR Automation provides turnkey operator-assisted tooling solutions for numerous manufacturing processes. From system layout development to full validation of system, our team can help you develop the right assembly and lift assist ergonomic tooling, to aid with manual assembly tasks while cutting down installation costs and downtime.
All our solutions include comprehensive professional planning, integration, and complete support services. We can also integrate upgrades or enhancements to existing solutions.
JR Automation has delivered many robotic systems into the assembly, trim, and final lines of the OEM and tier supplier assembly plants, which are areas that typically do not contain many robotic systems. Still, with the proliferation of collaborative robots, JR Automation is well positioned and highly capable of providing these solutions for our customers.
Our team specializes in projects with challenging timelines and complexity in variations of the model mix. JR Automation can support the latest electrical architectures and develop the programmable logic controller (PLC) and HMI software code to run the entire automation cell and assembly line. JR Automation also has our own internal mechanical engineering department and experts in all phases of automation, tooling, simulation, and layouts to achieve optimal results.
JR Automation offers complete turnkey robotic glass cells for adhesion application and glass installation. Whether your process requires a fully automated or semi-manual urethane application and decking system, JR Automation has the experience to provide you with the best solution. Fully automatic systems employ today’s most sophisticated machine vision detection for auto-decking, and they can work with an array of model variations. Semi-automatic applications or manual decking use the appropriate ergonomic lift-assist system to complete the job.
JR Automation can provide custom glass bonding systems for automotive OEMs, Tier 1 automotive manufacturers, and sunroof suppliers. These applications include inductive, heating, and gluing procedures to attach brackets or other critical parts to glass. Robotic arms and other systems can apply primers or activators to the glass before applying urethane if being bonded to a substrate, or they can apply primers to the substrate before bonding to the glass. Automated systems use these materials accurately, ensuring product quality.
