provides machining of mechanical parts for the automotive and naval
Nicolas DAIX and Vincent SERVAIS, managers and partners: “Since its creation 7 years ago, the company has been constantly evolving and we are constantly investing in very modern facilities allowing irreproachable control and quality.
It is in this context that we decided to automate a lathe 100%. In addition to a bar feeder feed, it was necessary to be able to load in piece to piece mode for the small (10 pieces) and the medium (200 pieces) series.
The solution proposed by ARMIN Robotics, an M35-Compact robotic cell equipped with an accumulation conveyor is ideal for our application. It offers the capacity and flexibility we were looking for.
It was our first robot and we chose to trust ARMIN Robotics because their programming flexibility and adaptability to the specifics of our process convinced us. At all stages of the project, ARMIN employees were available and attentive.
The latest improvements have further enhanced the usability and functionality of the ARMIN software. It's fast and intuitive! In less than 15 minutes, we change production!
Today our DMG NLX lathe works alone during the 2 shifts of the day and finishes his last serie in the middle of the night. The productivity gain is undeniable! Operators quickly adopted this new organization of work. They now focus on single and complex parts and leave the repetitive work to the robot.
Fully convinced by this first automation, we are already thinking about the next one… the new solutions developed by ARMIN Robotics offer great possibilities and "we intend to take advantage of them!".
Cédric Polmans, administrator, explains: "The objective was therefore to make the most of this new CNC's potential by running it autonomously and for more than 8 hours a day"
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. »
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.
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.
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 ».
