Robot press transfer operation will in the long run, have a much higher production capacity than manual operation.
The robot equipment from YASKAWA is designed for quick changes between different sheet dimensions. When new products are introduced.
The increased quality, which is a result of the robot’s exact movements, also leads to higher profits as the number of products that needs to be discarded is diminished.
For sheet metal press tending or stamping applications with high duty cycles, our press handling robots are ideal. Designed with heavy-duty drive systems that deliver in the most demanding applications, these robots also have higher vibration ratings to tolerate the tough conditions often encountered in press rooms.
Yaskawa MOTOMAN Integration Partners have developed solutions for part infeed, transfer, and pack-out/racking of sheet metal press lines and stand-alone press systems. They offer custom end-of-arm tooling, as well as interfaces to various presses and equipment, and support press line control system features diagnostic capabilities for the line and each individual press. We are supporting our Integrators by providing excellent press tending manipulators and controls, as well as technology like encoder/conveyor and communication interfaces, Functional Safety Features to manage safe operating zones and workspaces, simulation, and engineering tools, helping to optimize equipment layout and maximize throughput.

Master controller controls, it control overall the press line,robots transfer, control destacker centering, safety devices and ATC to the operation monitoring signal and the feedback signal for production management.
The front of line solution allows for processing the entire parts spectrum without interrupting the production or loss of performance, even during the blank stack change. The blanks are detached according to customer requirements, transported, cleaned, oiled and aligned to be ready for transfer to the first press by the loading feeder.
The centring device offers customers full flexibility at low costs. Up to 4 blanks can be centred without the use of part-specific tooling, eliminating the need for tooling changing and storage facilities, resulting in a significant reduction of errors and follow-up costs.
Grippers are devices that enable robots to pick up and hold objects. When combined with industrial robot arm, grippers enable manufacturers to automate key processes, such as inspection, assembly, pick & place and machine tending.
An automatic tool changer or ATC is used in computerized numerical control robots tools to improve the production and tool carrying capacity of the machine. ATC changes the tool very quickly, reducing the non-productive time. Generally, it is used to improve the capacity of the machine to work with a number of tools.
Grippers are devices that enable robots to pick up and hold objects. When combined with a collaborative (or ‘cobot’) industrial robot arm, grippers enable manufacturers to automate key processes, such as inspection, assembly, pick & place and machine tending.
Interlock switches detect the opening of guards or doors for prevention of access to hazardous areas and safely stop machines.
The end of line solution offers an excellent cost-benefit ratio. It allows for process-optimized and ergonomic placement of the finished parts on the output conveyor which facilitates processing the finished parts manually or automatically in a faster yet more controlled way.
