Gosiger Automation specializes in applying robotics to streamline workpiece flow. The result is improved throughput, reduced direct labor costs, consistent part quality and faster deliveries. Whether you’d like to automate the loading and unloading of a single machine tool or enhance the workflow of an entire production line, we can help. With dozens of successful installations in factories throughout the U.S. and 90+ years of working in the machine tool industry, Gosiger Automation has the talent and experience to develop a solution that precisely meets your needs.
Robots load each part exactly the same way, every time to produce consistent production quality and quantity day-after-day. To take full advantage of robotic automation, the machining process should be designed to eliminate irregularities and inconsistencies that would require the operator to intervene. If you need assistance refining your process, we can call in the experienced applications specialists in our Engineered Systems Division.
Part specifications change, new part orders come in and, because your robotic automation works so efficiently, you have additional capacity to make new parts or expand part families. In all of these situations your robot can easily be reprogrammed and/or retooled to take on these new tasks. Although many machine tools offer Cartesian-style automation for narrowly defined tasks, industrial robots with multi-axis, articulated design and high performance control systems, offer the same high level of performance over a broader range of applications.
Every Gosiger robotic automation system is comprehensibly documented as installed so we can provide lifetime support. We not only supply this documentation to the user, we also maintain it on our corporate server so it is available when needed. Because we back up all robot and PLC programs, we can quickly restore the system to “as installed” condition. We supply mechanical and electrical documentation with purchased component bills of material that include manufacturer names, part descriptions and part numbers. Detailed drawings of parts that Gosiger custom manufactures can be used to make replacement parts or as a starting point for new designs. We also empower customers to support their systems through local outlets of nationally distributed product lines like Allen Bradley, Siemens and others.
You don’t need special expertise to program robots in a Gosiger Automation system because we don’t mask the robot control with a proprietary front-end interface. Instead we empower your team to easily create new part programs that maintain consistency and continuity. The thorough program documentation we provide is easy to understand and use, and if you prefer to create new programs you don’t need to purchase and learn additional software. In addition, you can use our programs as templates.
If you’re considering automating all or part of your manufacturing process it’s likely you already recognize that robotic automation can reduce labor costs, increase throughput and improve part quality to boost your overall productivity. The next logical concern is justifying the cost.
Automating sophisticated manufacturing processes that include complex parts, multiple machine tools and other factors requires more than a standardized solution. That’s why Gosiger Automation takes a “clean sheet of paper” approach. We consider your specific challenges and needs, and then determine the appropriate system functionality, cell control, data collection and ergonomics necessary to provide the best possible result.
Gosiger has teamed up with Automation Within Reach to bring our CNC machine users a new Robotic tending solution. The Load & Go* from AWR (Automation Within Reach) is a simple, versatile, and affordable system for those customers who demand a broad range of parts produced in small lots sizes at increasingly competitive price points with no robotic programming! The Interactive user interface allows step-by-step part set up in minutes!
Check out this whitepaper to discover how robotic machine tending makes automation possible for any CNC shop.
