Universal Robot with Linear Track Machine Tending Case Study

Our latest case study video is now live on our YouTube channel. The project was for Schiedel Chimney Systems UK and features a Universal Robot on a Bosch Rexroth linear 7th Axis performing a machine tending application. The design and integration of the robotic cell were carried out by Olympus Technologies with excellent support Bosch Rexroth UK.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_video link=""][/vc_column][vc_column][us_separator][vc_column_text]

About the Project

Schiedel Chimney Systems approached Olympus Technologies to discuss the potential automation of a multi-stage machine tending application. They wished to make an arduous manual process more ergonomic for the operator by automating the repetitive manual handling aspect of the job.

Olympus Technologies worked with Schiedel Chimney Systems to develop the robotic cell and create a project specification. Considerations were made to allow for the growth of the cell and future-proofing for future developments and product lines.

A key aspect of the design was the ability to be able to operate the cell manually as well as robotically when required. In order to achieve this a more advanced safety system was designed using a Pilz safety PLC to manage both the existing and new machinery.

External sensory equipment was utilised throughout the process to provide the robot with feedback raising the intelligence of the system. This increased the efficiency of the cell allowing the robot to intuitively react to the required process, instead of working through a single thread step by step program.

The project was a success and Olympus Technologies are continuing to work with Schiedel Chimney Systems to raise the efficiency of the cell.
