Automated production - Willemin-Macodel

Automated production

To increase autonomy, flexibility and production rate, Willemin-Macodel has developed a range of automation solutions from unloading of machined parts to multi-machine robotic cells.

The manipulator authorizes the loading and unloading of workpieces or pallets for small and medium part runs. It meets standard requirements without additional functions.

Robotic automation offers more possibilities: handling of pallets or fixtures, positioning and orientation of workpieces, cleaning and blowing of the workpiece and pallet set-down surface, and complete management of blanks, finished parts and scrap.

Willemin-Macodel automated robotic cells are available in various sizes with different degrees of complexity. They can be dedicated to a single machining center or integrated in a complete, flexible production cell which includes other processes in addition to machining (3D measurement of the machined part, monitoring, marking, etc.)

Automation at Willemin-Macodel

Benefiting from the latest technological developments and all of Willemin-Macodel’s expertise in high-precision machining, these flexible automation solutions can be adapted to our entire range of machines.

 

 

Manipulator / Poly-articuled robot

Manipulator

To increase the machine’s autonomy during machining, Willemin-Macodel offers a manipulator arm for loading and unloading workpieces or pallets. This economical manipulator comprises a pneumatic longitudinal axis with 2 fixed positions. 0 ° – 90 ° gripper optional.

Robotic cell

Integrating a poly-articulated robot in a machine facilitates the automation of blank loading and the unloading of machined workpieces on the specified storage racks. The handling of pre-assembled workpieces is also taken into account in the specially designed fixtures.
The robot offers maximum flexibility. It handles both workpieces and pallets equally well, guaranteeing excellent positioning accuracy and handling of workpieces.

FLEXIBLE CELL

The flexible production cell is based on multiple production machines linked by a robotized system and an IT system, enabling the automated production of different types of workpieces, in variable quantities. The cell also enables other functions such as geometric acquisition of blank workpieces, monitoring of finished parts, cleaning/drying of machined parts, laser marking, etc.

This means the robotized system can not only feed the workpieces to the machines but also control automatic set-up changeovers. The flexible cell is designed to handle the production orders sequentially (in consecutive order). As such, there is only ever one production order, and therefore only one type of workpiece, being processed at a time. This simplifies the management model.

 

POSSIBLE FUNCTIONS

  • Flexible machining system (FMS)
  • Automatic loading of fixtures and workpieces into the machines
  • Complete workpiece machining
  • Deburring
  • Cleaning and drying
  • Measuring the workpiece on the 3D CMM machine
  • Identifying and laser-marking the workpiece
  • Placing the finished part in the storage system

EXAMPLE OF FLEXIBLE CELL

Advantages and flexibility of the robotization

 

Innovative functions and flexible application of robotization

One of Willemin-Macodel’s strengths is the ability to provide solutions adapted to the morphology of the workpieces and the operating range.

  • 4.0 intelligent automation and functions
  • Workpiece and fixture transfer, standalone solution
  • High operating autonomy
  • Increased production rate
  • Flexible solution
  • Compact model

 

Workpiece storage

For increased autonomy, the poly-articulated robot rationally manages the storage of blank and machined workpieces, generally in concurrent operation time.

  • Storage of machined workpieces in pallets, cups, baskets or a conveyor

Workpiece storage defined by Willemin-Macodel or reuse of customer storage

Storage capacity optimisation

Clamping changeover with GPS70 interface

Interchangeable pallet for different production types

Single unit production and identification of finished part cups

Production in batches stored in a single finished part cup

Production changeover

In the cell, the poly-articulated robot performs production and fixture changeovers without operator intervention.

  • Fixture changeover on divider with Yerly, GPS70, Hainbuch, 3R or EROWA type interface, etc.
  • Storage of fixtures in the robot zone
  • Storage drawers and rack adapted to the shape of the fixtures and pallets
