SPM & Robotic Integration

SPM & Robotic Integration

SPM is a commonly used industrial term referring to a Special Purpose Machine which is specially designed and custom made according to the client requirement. These SPMs have less failures and better rate of accuracy and are much more robust as compared to their manual counterparts. Robotics being our strong suit, we have also started with our own Robotic Integration & Automation services.

Dry Leak Testing SPM

Operation:
1. Pressurized air is filled in component to be tested.
2. Stabilized air pressure is held for defined time.
3. Found ok if no pressure drop occurs on pressure indicator.
4. Can be equipped with additional features for marking and tractability.

Advantages:
1. No manual process for such operations
2. Multi operational machine with compact size.
3. Easy to handle , and quick acting mechanism.

Wet Leak Testing SPM

Operation:
1. Welded assembly is inserted into the tank containing water.
2. Pressurized air is be filled in assembly dipped in water.
3. Found ok if no air bubbles formed inside the tank.
4. Can be equipped with additional features for marking and tractability.

Advantages:-
1. No manual process for such operations.
2. Quick and accurate inspections of assembly.

Marking SPM

Operation:
1. Ok Components from Leak testing are brought to marking SPM.
2. Ok components are marked with dot pin marking .
3. Marking is for tractability purpose .
4. Marking contains :- supplier code , production batch , year of manufacturing as specified by customer

Advantages:-
1. Accurate and efficient as compared to manual operation.
2. Quick and precise.
3. Faster as compare to manual marking.

MIG Brazing SPM

Operation:
1. Once the proper pneumatic clamping of parts on both the stations is acknowledged, a signal is passed to controller.
2. With this signal, the brazing torch begins the brazing operation.
3. Twin stations are operated together.
4. On completion of operations the torch automatically moves back to home position.

Advantages:-
1. Accurate and fast operation.
2. Single operator can handle 2 stations.
3. Provision for exhaust of hazardous gasses.

Cross Bar Mechanism

Operation:
1. Cross Bar Mechanism is also known as Press Tending Mechanism and is similar to automatic pick and place of material from press dies.
2. Pneumatic or magnetic gripper picks raw material and finished component at the same time.
3. Slider moves the gripper in a way so that raw material is placed in die and FG is placed in storage location.
4. Same cycle is continued for next components.

Advantages:-
1. Can save at least one operator.
2. Fast and without human interaction material handling.
3. Precise and delicate components can be handled without damage.
4. Higher per minute stroke rate can be archived.

Twin station Welding Cell

Operation:
1. Operator 1 sets a part and starts a cycle for welding.
2. Till the completion of operation Operator 2 sets the other part .
3.Once first operation is completed, the robot automatically comes to station 2.
4. Till the completion of second operation, Operator 1 sets another part on station 1.
5. The cycle continues in the same way.

Advantages:-
1. More operations with less operators.
2. Efficient and faster as compared to manual.
3. Accurate and same weld quality.
4. Zero wait time for robot.

Spot Welding cell

Operation:
1. Operator sets a part at every station at the start of shift.
2. Once the robot starts welding, it switches to the next station the first is done.
3. In the meantime, the operator replaces the parts easily.
4. This cycle continues without any halt.

Advantages:-
1. One operator can handle multiple stations.
2. Fast and accurate as compared to manual operation.
3. Compact in size and proper operation sequenc.
