Press tending

The press tending manipulators robots extract pieces from one press and place it in the next. Due to the way of gripping the pieces and their movement, it may be necessary to reorient the displaced part, which is why the use of 6-axis robots is common.

The lines of presses are destined to the deformation of pieces of big dimensions. They are usually composed of several presses, placed in line and powered by robots. The robots perform the function of the intermediate transport of the pieces between presses.

Industrial robots used in the printing sector are used for the manipulation of formats to feed the presses, due to the flexibility and the great precision and speed at which they can work.

The great advantage of the feeding of presses with industrial robots of occasion, lies in the great capacity of adaptation that they have to the change of pieces or form of work depending on the productive needs.

In press lines there are robots in the header to feed the start of line, robots between press and press and at the end of the lines to remove the piece already finished and proceed to its palletizing.

It’s tending to automate the entire process as much as possible, from machining, to process control, to the transportation of parts between presses, so that the parts are completely finished and verified, without any manual intervention. In this way, precision and repeatability are obtained with a high level of productivity.

The parts to be stamped are of considerable size and weight, for this reason their handling is automated by means of industrial robots.

When the complexity of the formats or parts to be manipulated is high, an application is developed by means of industrial robots that satisfy the needs of the process. These can be for unstacking of formats in press lines, for the transfer of the formats between the presses or for the stacking of pieces once they leave the press.
