Case Study : Vision-Guided Collaborative Robots Deliver Fast ROI in Manufacturing
Indiana-based Task Force Tips, a manufacturer of firefighting equipment, needed to improve manufacturing productivity in the company’s CNC machining cells. The goal was to add production automation for complex tasks while keeping spindle time up and product quality consistent. Conventional robotic machine tending has several disadvantages: extensive guarding, high cost and little flexibility, all essential issues for a high-mix, medium volume manufacturer like Task Force Tips.
The solution was Universal Robots collaborative robots that increased productivity and allowed the units to work alongside human operators with safety. Task Force Tips has now installed four Universal Robots delivering savings resulting in a return on their investment in only 34 days.
