Production Line with Integration of 10 Universal Robots
One of the main French meter manufacturers has worked closely with HighTaix (a subsidiary of ASM) to automate the assembly of its various models. The objective of this fully automated production line was both to automate the assembly but also the multiple tests necessary for the qualification of the meters.
The main challenge of this project came from the many references to manage (9 components maximum, more than 30 possible versions), packaged in different ways.
To remedy this, ASM has specially designed a production line for its client equipped with multiple state-of-the-art equipment: 10 Universal Robots, 8 ATEQ controllers, multiple supply systems, 6 vision systems, some of which are embedded in the robots, management OFs with exchange with the ERP / the CAPM…
This 18-month project was an important milestone for ASM, as it demonstrated its ability to design a production line of significant size, fully automated and with a significant number of robots.
After more than 15,000 hours of design and installation, the completion of this fully automated line is scheduled for early 2021.
Since its creation in 1997, ASM has designed and installed more than 300 production machines, prototypes and pilot installations in France and abroad, of which here are some examples:
- Robotic storage with Universal Robots
- Fully automated assembly line
- Assembly station for the high-speed medical industry
- Automated conveying, weighing and mixing for industrial perfumers
