A newly developed and installed Weldon Solutions automation project was featured in a recent Robotics Industries Association publication. In the article, Charlie Gales, Weldon’s Automation Sales Manager, talks about cable management as a critical step in a depalletizing and machine tending application for a boring mill system. The automation system featured a Fanuc robot using an overhead 3D area sensor to first locate and pick the parts from the pallet. Then a separate 2D vision system is used to precisely determine the part’s orientation in the gripper before loading it into the boring mill.
Weldon Solutions offers a full line of CNC OD, ID, and combination grinders. As a Fanuc Robotics integrator Weldon can also address your machine tending, material removal, material handling, and packaging/palletizing needs.
