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. About OMRON Electronics S.p.A. OMRON Corporation is one of the world leaders in automation and its work is based on the core technology "Sensing & Control + Think". Established in 1933, OMRON has approximately 30,000 employees worldwide and offers products and services in approximately 120 countries and regions.

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.
