If your company is still using ‘load-jaws’, or other means of manual loading of the bending/tempering furnace, consider the options that we can provide. The above shows one option of a Robotic Loading system, which uses vision to locate/place the part onto the furnace entry conveyor. Unlike a mechanical squaring system, changing to a new part is simply selecting another file on the vision system. In addition, the operator can easily adjust the X-Y-Rotation drop position as needed for the part to accurately match the bending tooling at the end of the furnace. We customized a layout for the Customer to either feed directly inline from the printing/drying system, or from an offline rack.
