Although the United States is second only to Japan in industrial robot usage, American manufacturers use robots in only 10% of possible applications. One reason is that many manufacturers aren’t aware of the many ways robots can improve productivity by reducing manual labor within the manufacturing process. In the Gosiger IMTS 2012 booth (S-9266), visitors will see live demonstrations of robots performing such tasks as loading and unloading parts, distinguishing good parts from bad, force sensing (plug & spine) and quick change End of Arm Tooling (EOAT). Additionally, Gosiger Automation will present videos of recent customer installations so visitors may view real-world applications of these automation principles.
If you’re curious about how robotic-based automation systems might help improve productivity for your manufacturing process, bring your application information to IMTS booth S-9266 and discuss it with the Gosiger Automation specialists.
While you’re there, you can also view new products from Gosiger’s high-volume line including Nomura Swiss-style turning machines; Shimada cam-free, multi-spindle lathes; BTB multi-spindle rotary transfer machines; Bumotec multi-tasking machining centers; Sinico automatic cut-off and end-finishing machines; and IFP single chamber, monoblock industrial cleaning units. Experienced Gosiger technical and applications staff will be on hand to explain how these high-volume products can reduce cycle times and increase throughput.
Gosiger staff will also be present in Okuma booth S-8500 in which the CNC machine company will introduce eight new machines including the MU-10000H, the largest Okuma 5-axis, horizontal, high-speed machining center. This new 5-axis CNC machine has a maximum work piece weight capacity of 5,500 pounds and can accommodate a work piece up to 59.05” in diameter by 44.29” high.
Plan to see the latest innovations from Gosiger in booth S-9266 and the newest Okuma additions in booth S-8500 at IMTS 2012.
