For a robot transfer unit for medium payload robots, Nexen Group Inc. provided a roller pinion system to optimise robot motion.
Manufacturers in many industries have relied on Mesh Automation Inc.’s machine engineering, design and installation services for nearly 20 years. Based in Dawsonville, Georgia, USA, Mesh builds custom automation equipment and offers a standard line of pre-engineered modules that make up the backbone of its system. Mesh uses robots and motion controlled linear systems to move raw materials or finished goods throughout their processes. The equipment is frequently used in many dirty environments typical of fabrication processes such as welding, grinding and finishing.
One project involved building an automation system for welding studs to a sheet metal door. Design challenges included producing welds strong enough to withstand high pullout force, preventing backside marking on the door, and maintaining production speed while accurately placing components.
