Robot Integration & Packaging

 
 

Versatech understands the difference between textbook engineering and common sense engineering and we rely heavily on the common sense engineering approach to robotic integration solutions that are robust and reliable in real world applications. As a machine integrator, we utilize robotic integration, automation, and controls hardware with proven software controls and programming. We design and build automated and robot integrated assembly and testing systems that ensure our clients the capability to reach their production and efficiency goals. A robotic cell helps manufacturing prepare for the future.

  Robotic Assembly  

Yaskawa robotic cell erecting boxesVersatech can integrate many robot brands (Fanuc, Motoman “Yaskawa”, Denso, Mitsubishi, UR, etc) into a standalone work cell or a fully automated system to improve throughput and reliability. Projects can be configured standard product or fully custom automation machines.

Some standard Robotic Assembly Solutions:

  • Screw install/driving
  • Clip install
  • Standard pick and place
  • Dispensing (adhesive, lube, etc)
  • Vision system integration (Keyence or Cognex)
  • Ultrasonic cutting
  • Integration with covenyors or indexers
  • Integration with various PLC's and HMI's
 

  CNC Machine Tending  

Do you need to reduce manpower in your machining operations? Versatech offers the pre-engineered VersaCELL robotic automation solution for mid-size CNC lathes, machining centers, and grinders. The VersaCELL provides machine shops with a simple, compact, and cost-effective automatic machine tending that can handle a wide range of parts.


Versatech can also provide a custom machine tending solution to address your specific needs. Whether it be hanging the robot upside down or mounting a robot on a 7th axis linear rail to service several machines, Versatech can engineer a solution to address your unique situation.

 

In conjunction with robotic machine tending, Versatech can provide complete turnkey equipment:

  • Hydraulic machining center integration
  • Fixture design and fabrication
  • Material handling
  • Cutting tool and process validation support

Versatech can integrate most major robot brands.

 

  Robotic Vision Inspection  

Versatech can combine part inspection or part locating with almost any robot.

Do you have a difficult or large part that needs inspection? Mount a camera on the end of a robot arm and allow the robot and vision system to complete the inspection process!

Do you have a process that requires a part to be located and then brought the next process? Apply a vision-guided robot!

Versatech is a certified Keyence and Cognex vision integrator.
