Freelance Robotics works with a local plastics part manufacturer to optimise their production solution using Kuka robots. The use of robots in this application has turned this part of the business from a loss-making enterprise to a profit-making enterprise.
Our customer, a company that undertakes juice manufacture, wanted to introduce a new product in a different sized package for the export market. Freelance Robotics reprogrammed and calibrated the pallet stacking robotic arm to accommodate the new package and pallet sizes. In the course of undertaking this work, we also identified other issues with the code and rectified them to improve overall plant operation.
We were requested to rectify problems being experienced at an automated industrial bakery. Freelance Robotics was not initially in charge of automation of the machinery, so after the initial site visit, we assisted the bakery by rewriting the previous programming. This ensured consistent loaf colour by using fitted cameras. We also reprogrammed a robotic arm that moves loaves from one conveyor to another, correcting the calibration. Whilst onsite, our staff noticed unusual wear on the robotic arm, investigated and rectified the cause.
