Solutions for a Smart Factory
To speed up production cycles and facilitate the activities of the operators, semi-automatic tightening systems are effective. These ones, thanks to the continuous refilling of the screws, which are shot automatically and therefore to the elimination of the manual phases of screw pick-up and its positioning on the blade or on the piece, are able to cut cycle times by over 30%.
With different types of screws the production rate can be further accelerated by using screwdrivers capable of tightening automatically 2 different screws which are then processed by a single feeder equipped with two bowls.
Let's see in detail the features of a typical configuration:
Screw feeder with two bowls
The two vibrating bowls, with a diameter of 240 mm and a capacity of 1 liter each, feed different screws but with similar geometries: for example different lengths between 10 and 35 mm or made of different materials (for example stainless steel / burnished steel). The feeder is equipped with an integrated PLC, which controls all the machine parameters according to the assembly needs and can interface with the line PLC or the automated production systems (Industry 4.0).
Auto feed manual screwdriver
It can be an air or electric screwdriver, the screw arrives directly on the screwdriver head and the operator can select the type of screw through the selector placed in a comfortable position in the handle itself; the choice of the screw can also be managed by the PLC of the feeder through an external signal.
Cutting-edge technologies that make the factory interconnected, intelligent and more performing thanks to better man-machine collaboration. For a true Smart production.
