Borrowing one of Mitsubishi Electric Automation Systems UK’s MELFA Assista collaborative robots (cobots), Design & Automations Solutions trained engineers to familiarise themselves with the cobot and pass this knowledge to customers. At Southern Manufacturing 2022 there will be a number of demonstrations to highlight the possibilities, but functionality is not limited to what can be seen at the show. Teams can tool and program the cobot for a multitude of applications, tailored to automation need.
Although a lot of the work is technically advanced and challenging, the company also gets involved in straightforward engineering.
Recent projects include heavy-duty scissor lift tables with cross slides and the added implementation of a tooled Grimm linear to a cap feeding system for a UK-based biotech automation company. There has also been a project for a major brand to provide a high-performance powered gantry system, capable of automatically tracking the position of a moving robot within a 9.0 x 6.0 x 2.5m volume. The gantry was also required to provide an 80kg winch function.
The company says it is agile, professional, qualified and experienced across bespoke automation systems, providing specialist machinery for organisations large and small. It understands customers’ automation requirements, listen and consult, to source and manufacture the most efficient and cost-effective automation solutions.
