Robotic Glovebox System Shipped

AMADA WELD TECH, Inc., a leading manufacturer of welding, marking, cutting, sealing, and bonding technology, announces the shipment of a robotic glovebox system to a leading defense manufacturer. The system featured a hermetic sealing system housed in a controlled environment glovebox complete with bake out ovens, conveyorized transfer and robotic arm loading. The system was designed to streamline the customer’s process, eliminating the chance of part damage from manual handling.

The glovebox robot system featured 4 bake out ovens, each with individually controlled heated shelves designed to hold magazines loaded with pallets of parts. Once unloaded, a conveyor facilitated easy transfer of the magazines to the seam sealing station.

A FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot arm was used to accurately select a pallet of lids/packages and precisely load/unload them to/from the hermetic seam sealer. The robot then transferred the pallets of sealed packages to the outgoing magazines located adjacent to a single antechamber for unloading.

The robotic arm was also programmed to lift out of the work area to safely facilitate easy access for operator intervention, service or maintenance.
