    Precise and consistent assembly of magnets and coatings with a cobot for the automotive market

    LITMAT, a company with over 70 years of experience in supplying components for the automotive industry, has recently introduced the OMRON TM5 cobot within its magnet assembly plant on metal oil drain plugs. The goal of the solution is to simplify the process of assembling the magnets that are necessary to attract any impurities in oil. The cobot takes care of the complete process, from applying the glue, inserting the magnets in the plugs and the verification of the amount of glue applied with the integrated camera. All data is managed centrally by an OMRON NX102 PLC, which can be connected to the MES for integrated supervision of the entire production cycle in real time. At the terminal (OMRON NB Series 7'') the operator can see the information related to processed pieces, types, rejected pieces, causes of stoppage as well as timing, and modify all the parameters relating to the formats if necessary, such as ​​height of the cap, magnet and magnetization. All these variables are supplied to the cobot, which then proceeds with the machining according to the quotas assigned for each different piece to be assembled, without expensive tooling operations. Like all OMRON cobots, even the OMRON TM5 installed in LITMAT can operate in the presence of personnel. Two barriers equipped with a safety module are connected to the PLC and allow the OMRON TM5 to enter collaborative mode. In this way, the employees in charge of sorting the magnets in boxes can work without any risk close to the automated area. Overall, the solution enables LITMAT to assemble approximately 180 caps per hour for a total of 1500 pieces in each 8-hour shift. All with unparalleled consistency: the cobot always exerts the same pressure on the plug, ensuring repeatability and consistent quality. About LITMAT S.p.A. LITMAT S.p.A. is specialized in the manufacturing of metal threaded plugs that are supplied mainly to the automotive industry (oil drain plugs) and to manufacturers of hydraulic, pneumatic, hydronic and mechanical equipment. They are the largest Italian manufacturer in this field, making a full line of plugs, in different materials (steel, brass, aluminium), according to various national standards (DIN, SAE, UNI, etc…), with any thread (metric, english or other), cylindrical and taper. LITMAT also manufactures many different types of magnetic plugs and we can make almost any plug according to the client’s specifications or drawing. LITMAT S.p.A. is particularly competitive in the international market in the production of cold formed steel plugs according to DIN 906, 908, 909 and 910 and special plugs according to customers’ drawings. Since 1950 LITMAT S.p.A. has been O.E. supplier of the most important automobile and truck manufacturers in Italy for all drain and fill plugs in the oil pan, gear box and differential. Many of the most important manufacturers of mechanical components (axles, gear boxes, pumps, etc…) for the automotive and industrial vehicle sectors and many important fastener dealers in Europe are in the list of their clients.

    This demonstration at the Gruppo Romani plant shows how a cobot to carry out intelligent labeling on any product format. The application, created by Bluengineering, a company specialized in process control in the ceramic industry, uses the OMRON TM5 Cobot with an outreach of 700 mm, taught in a few minutes by manually defining the gripping, passage and deposit points. The objective: application of labels on one of the four front sides of the outgoing package, quickly managing format changes quickly, without complex tooling operations. The cobot carries out most of the repetitive operations, while workerscan now focus on activities with greater added value. The collaborative nature allows the cobot to work safely in the presence of personnel. Specifically, this is made possible thanks to the integrated monitoring features that dynamically constrain the force and pressure to be exerted in the vicinity of the operator. The cobot can be programmed to stop or evaluate all possible interactions in which to limit its action so that accidental contact with humans does not become dangerous. The integrated vision system on the robot allows reading of the codes (bar code or QR), the control of the correct positioning, as well as the tracking and verification of the packages. All data is sent and managed centrally by an OMRON NX102 PLC connected to the MES for integrated supervision of the entire production cycle in real time. At the terminal, the operator can see the status of production, the batches in transit, the number, speed and method of labels to be printed and applied. Thanks to the cobot, companies can take advantage of a more versatile, more continuous and more efficient solution for labeling operations. Especially when beyond speed, they have to deal with the various different product formats: the reduction of downtime due to format change can reach up to 70% compared to a traditional mechanical axis system. All in maximum safety. Bluengineering s.r.l. Bluengineering srl is an engineering company operating in ​​process control in various production sectors: ceramic, packaging, food, chemical and mechanical, with particular attention to automation dedicated to the production of porcelain stoneware ceramic tiles.

Designed for flexible manufacturing

We have designed our collaborative robots to be easily deployed to different tasks and applications. Making production as flexible as needed and empowering your people to do what they do best.

Product life cycles are getting shorter. Production and automation solutions can support your needs to adapt production processes quickly. 

Cobots can help to future-proof SMEs where needed, from simple pick-and-place applications for parts handling, sorting and palletizing, through to machine assembly. 
 
Your employees will also experience significant benefits since they are relieved from monotonous and physically demanding or even dangerous work. Our cobots will support them in heavy lifting and precision work, so they can concentrate on their core abilities. 

Create your application within an hour

With graphical programming, hand guiding, and intelligent vision, OMRON TM cobots are designed to be easy and intuitive. The hand guide mode allows you to easily set points and assign tasks to the robot, no programming is required. Teach buttons are located directly on the wrist of the cobot arm for hands on position teaching, gripper activation, and vision task placements. Having the teach control on the end of robot arm tool is an advantage for user friendly operations. Using only four buttons on the robotic arm, you can set up simple applications in just a few minutes.

Integrated vision

The built-in camera and the integrated vision system are two of the biggest advantages of OMRON cobots. The vision system is designed for pattern recognition, object positioning, and barcode identification, and includes features such as vision recognition and image enhancement. Using the software’s task designer, users can set up vision tasks for immediate deployment without the need for installing additional cameras or lighting equipment.

Landmark navigation

During high-mix, low-volume production with quick changeovers, customers can redeploy the robot without spending time to recalibrate the vision system. Our cobots use landmarks for easy redeployment without requiring jigs or recalibration. 

A landmark is a physical object that can be recognized by the robot’s built-in camera, and acts as a beacon to help the robot navigate. 

Choosing Cobot vs. Industrial Robot

OMRON TM Collaborative Robots change the way the traditional factory used to work. No physical cages are needed anymore. Designed for high-mix, low-volume production at a speed comparable to human workers, OMRON TM cobots can work with humans in harmony.

Traditional industrial robot

Traditional industrial robots must be separated from human activity by a safety fence or cage, and must be fixed to one place as they are normally used for one specific task.

  • Complex configuration
  • Robotic experts are required
  • Rigid solutions
  • Large footprint
  • Protection fences are required
  • High additional cost associated

Collaborative robot

Cobots were created to work safely and in harmony with people. They can be moved from one location to another to work on different tasks.

  • Quick configuration
  • No experts are required
  • Flexible and easy to re-allocate
  • Space saving / Small footprint
  • Human-machine collaboration
  • Short ROI
