Comau + F.T. FAMAT (case073)

Semi - Automatic line for gluing of insulating panels of fridges

From construction, to try-out, to production:

this was the story of the system designed by F.T. FAMAT

Our approach

To meet the customer's expectations FT Famat chose the Comau NJ-40-2.5 as the core of the semi-automatic line they created. The system consists of 5 stations placed on a rotating table.

The robot places a special insulating panel onto a sheet metal on which a hot melt was previously swirled. In the next station a roller presses the panel against the glue to guarantee the adhesion before the operator collects the finished part.

 

The main challenge of the project was the loading of the hand-made insulating panels.

The system had to be flexible to allow the final customer to process a wide range of panels.

These insulating panels often have manufacturing defects such as wrinkles, bending and imperfections, therefore a robust and reliable robot was needed.

 

"We needed a reliable and user-friendly robot and interface for this task. The NJ-40 was perfect for the purpose, allowing us to manipulate large objects and optimize the work of our engineers thanks to Comau's intuitive interface"
