Industrial Robotic Applications

Industrial Robots offer some obvious advantages in terms of speed, accuracy and productivity as they can run 24/7 repeating jobs which would be tedious to operators without human error.

Below are some common applications for which Loop Technology can provide a robotic solution to increase your productivity and quality. However if you have a different application in mind please contact us to discuss. It may also be possible to integrate more than one application into a system to suit your needs.

  • Vision Guided Robots
  • Robotic Welding
    Probably the most common robot application. All methods of robot welding can be achieved accurately, solidly and neatly due to the control of filler substance and unfalteringly steady positioning. This leads to less scrap and higher productivity. Unlike manual welding robotic welding is unaffected by the flash (molten metal waste) and removes the risk of injury.
  • Robotic Cutting
    The high degree of accuracy lends itself to robotic cutting operations whether fabric, paper, plastic, wood or even metals. Removes human error and risk of injury. Popular cutting techniques are robotic waterjet, plasma and laser.
  • Robotic Assembly
    From assembling cars to PCB's robot assembly benefits from repeatable and accurate part placement.
  • Packaging / Palletising
    Robots can quickly package items without error and can also arrange the products onto pallets securely, even wrapping the products to keep them in place.
  • Cleaning / Spraying
    Controlled jets of air or water can remove any debris from any surface at any angle.
  • Coating / Painting
    Consistent paint finishes are achieved with minimum waste of paint and remove the concern of the effect of paint fumes on employees. They can also be used to submerse products in solutions unsuitable for human contact.
  • Robotic Deburring and Fettling
    Accurate removal of waste from around drilled holes and machined edges without tarnishing the surface.
  • Die Casting
    The removal of product within a mould can be quickly performed by a robot and can handle the product at higher temperatures long before standard removal techniques which means less cooling time required by the machine and ultimately increased productivity.
  • Gluing / Sealing
    Consistent application of glue or bonding materials with precision leads to less waste. High pressure can be applied after application and parts are accurately placed together. Not affected by fumes.
  • Injection Moulding
    Similar to Die Casting, the material can be handled at much higher temperatures leading to shorter cycle times and increased productivity. The product can be removed safely without it being deformed from the fall when ejected from the mould.
  • Machine Tending
    A robot can service a machine in many ways from changing tools to placement and removal of work pieces. There is no risk of injury to operators should they get caught in the machine.
  • Material Handling
    Robots are used to move, feed or disengage parts or tools to or from a location, or to transfer parts from one machine to another. It can also be used to handle material unsuitable or harmful to humans or in environments which are equally inhospitable. An expanding area is one for handling composites.
  • Press Automation
    Again similar to Injection Moulding and Die Casting, the product can be removed at much higher temperatures even horizontally.
  • Vision
    A robot can be combined with vision equipment to act as guidance or to perform any of the tasks discussed in our Machine Vision section. Robots can be precisely positioned to carry out inspection of parts which are hard to reach i.e., the inside of a cylindrical object.
