The material shot by means of piston is held as long as in the tool until stability of part of is achieved. In the next step, the machine and thus the form opens. The robot reaches its position in open form, the ejector eject the casting, which frees the located on the casting gripping point for the robot. The robot removes the part, sprays from one side of the form with a release agent, rotates the gripper 180, and sprayed the second page of the form in the same way.

A big plus the robot of the F-series, which here comes to fruition, is the slim arm design and thereby minimized interference contours because immersion in pressure die-casting machines work in a confined space is needed. Another advantage is the small footprint and a work area landscaped close to the arm which the work cell of the robot in spite of many individual tasks is very small and space is saved. By this method it is possible the claw of FS10L, without having to leave the machine to turn 180 and save valuable cycle time. To make sure that no parts/castings in the pressure casting machine remained, drive the robot with the casting of the machine, protruding from the tool and performs a Visual inspection of the part. A possible crash when the next casting is avoided, as the pressure casting machine in the event of a fault is stopped by a corresponding signal of the robot.

The part defective or incomplete is at the same time removed by the robot. The part is fully recognized, moves the robot to a cooling pool. The dip cools the hot pressure casting on a temperature of below 100 degrees. The highlights at a glance continuous production without manual intervention possible high process reliability five robot steps at a time / total time of only approx. 30 Seconds. Interesting for companies with medium to high volume, such as automotive, electrical supply, household articles, truck, etc. We work successfully with Kawasaki Robotics full automation or part of automation possible for over 10 years”, says Christian Sander.
