Robotics spare parts

1. Robotics application

Robotic applications are manifested in the following applications: Robotic arms, servo motors, and vision systems.

Robotic arms in assembly and logistics are simply all-encompassing. In assembly, robotic arms provide automation, precision and the ability to handle complex structures, improving assembly efficiency and product quality. In the logistics industry, robotic arms enable intelligent cargo handling, warehouse management and logistics coordination, improving logistics efficiency and accuracy.

Servo motors are widely used in the field of industrial automation, mainly used in a variety of needs for precision control of robots, automated production lines, CNC machine tools, printing machines, packaging machines, injection moulding machines and other equipment.

Machine vision is widely used in industrial automation, detecting the appearance of electronic products, and semiconductor packaging positioning guides robots to achieve data traceability. In pharmaceutical, packaging, electronics, automotive manufacturing and other industries, to replace manual operation, and improve product quality and production efficiency.

Robotic arms, servo motors and vision systems have several famous brands, such as YASKAWA, KUKA, ABB, FANUC, STAUBLI, INOVANCE, etc.

2. Packaging Machinery:

Packaging machinery is responsible for efficiently and accurately packaging products. Normally use the parts of PLCs, HMIs, sensors, and servos.

In packaging machinery, PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) are responsible for coordinating and controlling the various moving parts to ensure an efficient and stable packaging process. The human-machine interface allows the operator to intuitively monitor and adjust mechanical parameters, improving ease of operation. Sensors detect product position, status and other information and provide feedback to the control system to ensure packaging accuracy and consistency. The servo system, on the other hand, adjusts the speed and position of the packaging machinery through precise motion control to improve packaging accuracy and efficiency. 

3. Printing machine:

Printing presses produce printed materials such as newspapers, labels and packaging. Automation components typically used are print controllers, sensors and actuators.

The print controller is responsible for coordinating the printing process and adjusting printing parameters to ensure output quality. Sensors are used to monitor printing materials, print quality and machine status, providing real-time feedback to the control system for immediate adjustments. Actuators adjust the movement of the printing machinery based on control signals, including adjusting print pressure, speed and positioning for accurate and consistent prints.

4. Textile machinery:

Textile machinery for spinning, weaving, knitting and fabric finishing. Automation accessories used in textile machinery include programmable logic controllers, proximity sensors and pneumatic devices.

The PLC is responsible for controlling and coordinating the operation of the entire machinery system, which is programmed to enable the adjustment of different operating modes and parameters. Proximity sensors are used to detect the position and status of textile materials or machine components, providing feedback to the PLC for real-time adjustment and monitoring. Pneumatic devices, on the other hand, drive the movements of the actuating mechanical parts, such as lifting, gripping and moving, using air pressure to automate the textile process. 

5. Food processing equipment:

Food processing equipment serves to sort, cut, mix and package food. The automation components used in food processing equipment are pneumatic actuators, level sensors and temperature controllers.

Pneumatic actuators control mechanical movement using pneumatic pressure to realize operations such as clamping and transferring in food processing equipment. Liquid level sensors are used to monitor the level of liquids in liquid containers to ensure accurate dosing and operation during production. Temperature controllers are responsible for monitoring and maintaining temperatures within the equipment to ensure that food processing takes place within the proper temperature range for product quality.

6. Automobile assembly lines:

Automobile assembly lines can realize automation of automobile assembly. Commonly used automation components are conveyor systems, robotic arms and PLCs.

Conveyor Systems: Conveyor systems are used to transfer automotive parts along the assembly line to the different workstations for sequential, automated delivery of parts.

Robotic Arms: These are used for automatic gripping, positioning and mounting of parts.

PLC: PLC is a programmable logic controller responsible for coordinating and controlling operations on the entire automotive assembly line. It monitors and adjusts the operation of each automated component in real-time through pre-set programs to ensure the normal operation of the assembly line and to coordinate the various steps.

7. Pharmaceutical machinery:

Pharmaceutical machinery is used to produce and package pharmaceuticals. The automation components used include PID controllers, barcode scanners and pressure transmitters.

PID Controllers: PID controllers are used to monitor and adjust parameters such as temperature, pressure and flow in pharmaceutical processes. Ensures that temperature, pressure and other critical parameters in the manufacturing process remain within set limits.

Barcode Scanners: Barcode scanners are used to track and manage drug information in the pharmaceutical process. Real-time access to drug batch, production date and other information ensures accurate dosing and traceability.

Pressure Transmitters: Pressure transmitters are used to monitor and control pressure in pharmaceutical machinery.

8. Plastic injection molding machine:

Plastic injection moulding machines manufacture plastic parts. It uses automated components such as hydraulic systems, temperature controllers and mould sensors.

Hydraulics: Hydraulic systems are used in plastic injection moulding machines to provide the high-pressure force needed to inject molten plastic material into the mould, ensuring the integrity and accuracy of the plastic part formation.

Temperature Controllers: Temperature controllers are used to maintaining and regulate the heating and cooling systems of injection molding machines.

Mould Sensors: Mold sensors are used to monitor and provide feedback on the status and position of the mould.

9. Metal stamping machine:

The function of a metal stamping press is to press and shape sheet metal into parts. It uses automation components such as servo presses, proximity sensors and safety controls.

SERVO PRESSES: Servo presses are controlled by a servo system to provide high precision, adjustable force and speed for stamping sheet metal.

Proximity Sensors: Proximity sensors are used to monitor the position and condition of the metal plate.

Safety Controller: The safety controller is responsible for monitoring and maintaining the safety of the metal stamping press.
