We designed multiple fully automated robotic cells to reduce the cost of direct labor upon our Pet Home to its absolute minimum. This complex fabrication cell consisted of 16 robots, vision inspection systems, automated orientation, part feeding systems, specially built resistance-welding equipment, and a complete software interface system for full automation.
The Pet Home was manufactured from 9-gage steel and 1/4" 1008 PQ wire and finished with zinc plating and powder coating. Measuring 40" long by 30" wide, and 36" high, it was fabricated using processes such as straight and cut, Schlatter (automated wire mesh welders), trimming, press-brake forming, and resistance press welding. After assembly, the unit was fully inspected to meet customer standards and packaged. We worked to tightest tolerances of ±.039" and ±2ᵒ.
