New automated packaging robot for FA-PLW
Lämneå Bruk is concentrating the newest machine developments increasingly on automation in order to enhance the user-friendliness and safety of our equipment. Recently, we have launched an automated packaging robot application as optional add-on to the Fully Automatic Precision Layer Winder (FA-PLW).
The FA-PLW combines speed, precise wire laying to a 100th of a millimeter and fully automatic spool exchange with servo-drive motor operated toolings for continuous production at top speeds of 35m per seconds. It is suitable for 1kg, 5kg, 15kg and 30kg spools of different material such as wire baskets, plastic and fibre.
The newest addition, the packaging robot, will significantly ease the packaging process of finished spools. A robot checks the total weight of the finished spools that the FA-PLW has spooled thoroughly. Should there be any discrepancies, the robot will put the spool aside to get double checked by the staff and continues with the next spool for an uninterrupted process. If everything is in accordance with the pre-determined weight and quality standards, the automatic packaging robot moves the finished spools onto pallets, where they can be labelled and packed for shipping.
