Case Studies

PART SORTING
Sorting and palletizing parts from bin to tray
CHALLENGE

When parts are stocked in bulk, or disordered, it is cumbersome job to arrange it due to its tilted position, X-Y gantry cannot pick parts using 2D vision

SOLUTION

Using 2D vision & vibration pad, HCR-5 can recognize and calculate 3D shape of parts.

HCR-5 picks part and palletizes it in array

INSPECTION & PALLETIZING
Inspecting automotive parts and palletizing on tray
CHALLENGE

Repetitive manual work for inspecting automotive parts may cause WMSDs (Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders)

Considering human error, break time or changing shift, human work during In-line production may evoke work-in-process stock

SOLUTION

Using HCR-5 to automate inspecting and palletizing

PARCEL PALLETIZING
Palletizing and de-palletizing of parcel in logistic
CHALLENGE

Postal logistic warehouse has all different size of boxes to handle, it is not possible to standardize nor automate.

It is time limited, harsh work.

Due to Covid19, parcel logistic has highly increased.

SOLUTION

Adopting HCR-12 with RAIV 3D vision, it is possible to automate palletizing and de-palletizing process of box type parcel.

It dose not require much space nor safety fence, robot can be installed in current warehouse without construction.

BARCODE ATTACHING
Attaching barcode and registering for Lot Tracking
CHALLENGE

When sticking process is carried out by hands, attachment condition is not constant. (Continuation of quality issues)

Long production cycles and simple repetitive process is inefficient for workers.

Changing the location of the attachment according to the variation of the product type.

SOLUTION

A HCR-5 equipped with a multi-head vacuum gripper
was deployed to barcode sticking line.

HCR’s easy-programming gives flexibility to respond
to changes in  product types  

ASSEMBLY (BOLTING & SCREW DRIVING)
Vehicle headlamp assembly process
CHALLENGE

Quality problem continue to occur due to various angle of bolting (screw driving)

Repetitive process causes WMSDs (Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders)

SOLUTION

Screws are automatically supplied to HCR-5 by using  screw feeder.

Using HCR-5 equipped with screw driving tool and easily implement various angle tightening through easy robot software.

MATERIAL HANDLING
LDC Bezel Bonding (Demo before inline installation)
CHALLENGE

Production line need to be changed in every year.

Articulated robot is rarely adopted.

SOLUTION

With large working radius of 1,300mm HCR-12 pick-and-place bezel and board to bond them.

Due to flexible deployment and easy programming of HCR, automation barrier and investment for job change got lower.

WELDING
Simple and dangerous manual welding
CHALLENGE

Manual welding market is big.

But Robotic welding market is still at the beginning.

SOLUTION

Simple and dangerous manual welding can be easily automated using HCR. 

CLEANING
Automotive engine cleaning with air blower
CHALLENGE

After machining and assembling, cleaning of internal debris is required. The cycle supplied to the line is long,
causing inefficiency of the operator.

Missing occurs when proceeding manually due to several holes need to clean

SOLUTION

Mount the air blower at the end of HCR-5 arm.

Since HCR-5 is six-axis robot, cleaning all holes in the powertrain is possible without changing EOAT.

MACHINE TENDING
Machine tending with various type of CNC Machine
CHALLENGE

Need to extend its production without employing additional workers.

Conventional industrial robot requires a safety cage.

SOLUTION

HCR with dual gripper to pick up the material and replace with raw metal.

Able to deploy the robot without changing conventional manufacturing line.

*Using FOCAS plug-in, it is much easier to connect robot to machine with Fanuc controller

ANTI COVID - STERILIZING
Sterilizing public place with UV or alcohol sterilizer
CHALLENGE

Due to Covid19, sterilizing is needed for most of public place, shared object and even our hands.

Sterilizing is repetitive job and even there’s risk of infection.

SOLUTION

Adopt HCR cobot with mobile robot.

 

The robot can automatically sterilize hospital, elevator, factory or office.

ROBOT COFFEE SHOP
HCR Barista & serving robot for 24/7 unmanned shop
CHALLENGE

With Covid-19, a company want to operate 24/7 unmanned coffee shop which can minimize human contact, and maximize social distance.

SOLUTION

Using HCR-5 robot as robot barista to make coffee and mobile robot as server.

Customer can easily order coffee at table (or take out counter) with kiosk and be served.
