Lacotte Industrie, a precision mechanical part machiner, particularly for aeronautics, acquired a robot cell in late 2019 to automate the loading/unloading of a CNC lathe.
Christophe Sécheret : « It was the first robot in our workshops. The main drivers of this acquisition were competitiveness, the reduction of manufacturing cycles, the robustness of the process and the modernization of our plant ». ARMIN supported us in the integration of this new robot on a relatively old numerical control lathe.
Integration and handling were done in a few days. The robot with its interface are very well suited to a machine shop.
The majority of our difficulties have been focused on the industrialization of parts in a process that is now automated : an indirect consequence of this new equipment.
Today the lathe is 50% more occupied than before and the operator has increased their skills : their time is now better valued at quality control.
