Adept strives to keep its manufacturing systems lean for all parts that we manufacture. Whether it’s a customer focused solution, or something to improve efficiencies of our own proprietary range, we are always searching for ways of reducing labour and improving accuracies.
Here we have developed a set of robotic grippers for picking these plug parts straight from the machine and placing them in specific boxes for final packaging. Previously this would have been sorted out post-moulding by a person, who would have to had fill the boxes and weigh count the plugs.
Counting the parts via the robot guarantees the exact amount of product in our packed boxes and our staff can be better utilized elsewhere in the factory.
Adept is committed to improving automation where practically possible for all our manufactured parts. Look out the machines are coming.
