ERNAULT CNC lathe robotization



Client :
LACOTTE INDUSTRIE
Le Palais-sur-Vienne (France)

Type of solution :
Chargement de pièces
ARMIN machine :
série M

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.

Geoffroy Cammermans, CEO : « The installation went perfectly, everything works according to our expectations.  The ARMIN team is very responsive and attentive.  This allowed us to build a production cell meeting our needs on the basis of their standard solution. »


ARMIN T with MAZAK VTC530

Dumoulin aero
Alleur (Belgium)

The modularity of ARMIN software made it possible to start up this cell without modifying the robot program.  In fact, simple configuration management (a vice or a lathe chuck) like complex machines (two spindles, two tables, roto pallets,…) is integrated to ARMIN. As a result, a configuration that seems "non-standard" is actually "standard" with ARMIN.

Confidentiel

The Technical & Production Manager : « In order to meet the requirements of our aircraft manufacturer customers, we had to increase our productivity and reduce our costs.  It is with this objective that we contacted ARMIN to study the the automation of an OKUMA GENOS lathe.  I must admit today that the result has exceeded our expectations.
