Engmatec offers a high-speed screw-fastening station for inline operation as part of an assembly line system. It uses a fastening method based on the pick-and-place principle incorporating vacuum suction units. It also includes a Mitsubishi Electric RP-5ADH robot with corresponding CR1D robot controller.
The company claims this screw-fastening system has a cycle time of approximately 0.8 seconds, including handling, and can handle ten screws in 18 seconds. The system controller also accepts the tightening torque and angle of rotation data for each screw.
