In 2016 we reported 8 minor work comp injuries to workers that did this job by hand. Since moving it to a robot in 2017 we have had no injuries. The robot does the job more efficiently. We have reduced labor from 3 employees to one robot operator with NO scrap. The payback on this robot cell worked out to less than 12 months. The fixture we designed is auto adjusting to accommodate multiple shaped parts at different dimensions on the fly. This allows us to feed the robot from at least 10 different molds.
This part size allowed us to build a turntable fixture. While the robot is busy, the operator unloads and reloads the fixture. After the cycle completes the operator indexes the part into the robot cell. We have reduced the production time from 3 shifts to 1! And the scrap rate stands at 0 %.
