JR Automation knows how important it is to get the most out of your metal-forming and stamping production. Let us help you bring the latest controls and automation to your presses. With our large team of controls engineers, JR Automation has been helping our customers retrofit their presses to the latest material handling, controls, and safety compliance standards.
JR Automation designs and manufactures a variety of front-of-line, end-of-line, and tandem press transfer robotic systems. Safety is the highest priority for all our customers. We can help get your presses to the latest safety standards using the most current safety controls. To make these automatic stamping presses more efficient, we can help you replace your legacy controls and get the most out of your stamping process.
Every one of our robotic systems is customized based on your press and stamping requirements. Each robotic process is put through simulation studies and designed to be flexible for product changeovers. An efficient controls architecture is designed into each system to optimize uptime and maximize production.
A good front-of-line destacker system needs to provide a continuous feed of blanks to the press line. We design our robotic front-of-line destacker systems to be flexible and reliable. JR Automation provides destacking systems with a wide range of speeds and capabilities. Our systems are designed to your requirements. We offer the following capabilities:
Our robotic end-of-line racking systems deliver parts to operators that are safe, ergonomic, and adaptable for different parts. JR Automation offers multiple types of end-of-line systems. These include adjustable conveyors, shuttle pack-out systems, exit conveyors, and automatic racking systems. We also offer the following capabilities:
A tandem press transfer system consists of multiple individual presses, with its part being transferred from press to press robotically. Part transfer automation can handle each stamping stage for optimization and speed.
The life cycle of a press is much longer than traditional automotive systems. So it’s easy to understand how important it is to upgrade the controls and safety systems – ensuring personnel safety and meeting OSHA requirements – and replace outdated components that are no longer available. JR Automation will work as a team with your engineering on all types of presses, including tandem, transfer, tryout, or progressive presses.
Upgrading your controls systems will ensure shorter production runs and quicker changeovers. Our team is highly skilled in controls engineering and knows the importance of commonality, reliability, architecture, and usability.
Keeping operators and maintenance personnel safe is our priority. JR Automation has performed safety upgrades on presses made as early as the 1960s. Each project is unique and requires safeguarding, and we will help you meet the latest industry safety standards.
