At its molding facility in Largo, Florida, MICRO employs the latest, most proficient fully articulating 4- to 6-axis robots for labor-free insert placement and other operations, such as the application of sealants/gaskets, press-fit terminations and automated inspection.
Speed and repeatability are the key concepts attributed to robotic arms with speeds up to 7,200 mm/s (283 in./s), and repeatability possible at .07 mm - .02 mm (.0027 in. - .0008 in.).
End-of-arm tooling on these robots can be designed and programmed to pick and place several similar or dissimilar objects at a time — and load up to 40 stampings per mold cavity. And needless to say, robots never require coffee breaks, vacations or health insurance.
Robots can reduce cost, eliminate defects and reduce waste — thus providing our valued customers with labor-free, mistake-proof, zero-defect and high-output support.
