Four applications of integration of industrial robots and CNC machine tools

(article source: new strategic robots)

the automotive industry used to be the most important field of robot application. With the improvement of automation demand, the application of industrial robots has been expanded. In addition to traditional welding applications, robots have also been widely used in machine tool loading and unloading, material handling and stacking, grinding, spraying, assembly and other fields. Metal forming machine tools are an important part of machine tools. Forming processing is usually associated with high labor intensity, noise pollution, metal dust, etc. sometimes it is in a high temperature, high humidity or even polluted environment. The work is simple and boring, and it is difficult for enterprises to recruit people. The integration of industrial robots and forming machine tools can not only solve the employment problem of enterprises, but also improve the processing efficiency and safety. At present, the new graphene reinforced prepreg is being evaluated to improve the processing accuracy, which has a great development space

there are two main ways to apply robot bending integration. First, with the bending machine as the center, the robot is equipped with vacuum suction cups, and the magnetic separation feeding frame, positioning table, blanking table and turnover frame form a bending unit. The second is the flexible processing line of plates formed by robots and laser equipment or CNC rotary table punch, industrial robot walking axis, sheet metal transmission line, positioning table and vacuum sucker gripper

Esther used his own technology and platform in the robot control system and machine tool CNC system to realize seamless connection, developed bending software package, and realized closed-loop control of robot material support in the bending process. At different bending speeds, the robot realizes complete tracking of automatic matching, and the bending software package also shortens the bending teaching time from days to hours. It is well applied in the processing of switch cabinet, file cabinet, elevator, anti-theft door, etc

there are two main ways for the integrated application of robot and press stamping. First, single robot stamping loading and unloading: the sheet metal is moved from the destacking platform to the positioning platform by the robot, and then transferred to the press die for stamping after positioning. After stamping, the sheet metal is taken by the robot and placed on the stacking platform to realize the automatic loading and unloading of single press robot. The second is robot stamping connection: establish stamping connection between multiple presses through multiple robots

according to the requirements of workpiece forming process, it needs to be processed by multiple presses. The whole production line is composed of destacking robot, feeding robot, transmission and handling robot between presses, and tail line robot. Compared with the linear coordinate manipulator, the industrial robot is more flexible, has no high requirements on the mold, and is easy to integrate. Esther uses the autonomous press control system to seamlessly connect with the robot control system to achieve the best coordination between the robot's action and the press. Thirdly, the electromechanical and lead screw transmission system has problems. The fieldbus is used to maximize the efficiency of the whole production line and improve the safety.

the hot die forging production line is usually composed of two die forging presses, one for stamping and the other for trimming. Hot die forging robot China's plastic extruder industry is moving towards a healthy and sustainable integrated application. Usually, two robots are configured, one is responsible for transferring the high-temperature materials treated by the medium frequency furnace to the stamping die forging press, and the other is responsible for transferring the materials from the stamping die forging press to the other die forging press for edge cutting. In order to prevent the high-temperature stamping workpiece from sticking to the die, it is necessary to lubricate the die with graphite after each stamping. The lubrication can be completed by a robot or by a special mechanism

because the forging is a harsh environment with high temperature and humidity and graphite lubrication, special attention should be paid to the protection of the robot and the thermal radiation resistance of the robot itself. The robot shaft motor of Easton company has the structural feature of self avoiding thermal radiation at the joint of the robot's boom and jib. The electronic cam control system is installed in the die forging press to coordinate the operation of the die forging press with the operation of the robot, improve the processing efficiency and enhance the safety of the system

welding is the subsequent process of sheet metal processing of forming machine tools. There are two types of robot welding: resistance welding and arc welding. The application of welding robot accounts for more than 40% of the whole robot application. The application of arc welding takes robot as the core, and the welding workstation is composed of welding machine, wire feeder, welding gun, tooling fixture, etc. Easton can provide 6kg special arc welding robot workstations with arm lengths of 1400, 1600 and 2000mm. The application of resistance welding is based on the robot, and the spot welding workstation is composed of spot welding gun, welding controller, water and gas unit, pipeline package, tooling fixture, etc. Easton can provide a special resistance welding robot workstation with 220kg and 2600mm arm length. In addition, Easton automation company has developed a special welding software package for welding applications, which integrates the welding expert process parameter library into the robot system to meet various types of needs

robot is a typical representative of advanced manufacturing technology and automation equipment. Intelligent industrial equipment has become the basis for the upgrading and transformation of the global manufacturing industry. The integrated application of industrial robots and CNC machine tools makes intelligent manufacturing, digital workshops and intelligent factories from concept to reality
