Automation Redefined: Efficiency and Precision in Tool Manufacturing

MicBotX: The modular automation solution for advanced manufacturing

Automation gaps in machine tools and injection molding machines

Machine tools and injection molding machines are poorly automated. As a result, manual work steps are necessary, leading to longer throughput times, higher costs and an increased risk of errors. The lack of automation leads to:

  • Increased personnel expenses. However, especially in times of staff shortages, vacancies are difficult to fill.
  • Inefficiencies due to manual work steps.
  • Outdated work processes that can no longer keep up with current market standards.
  • On top of this, automation solutions are often expensive due to a lack of standardization.

Automation using a flexible robot cell

MicBotX comes to the rescue here: the robot cell features impressive flexibility and can be used quickly and cost-effectively to automate machine tools and injection molding machines thanks to its modular design.

An overview of the robot cell’s areas of application:

  • Machine loading and unloading: Efficient loading and unloading of machine tools and injection molding machines for smooth production.
  • Camera-assisted bulk material sorting: Precise bulk material sorting thanks to advanced image processing technology.
  • Versatile automation solutions: MicBotX adapts flexibly to different requirements in assembly, packaging and other automated processes.

More efficient processes and shorter cycle times

MicBotX is efficient, flexible, precise and can be easily adapted to different locations. The modern robot cell takes production to the next level and thus offers a wide range of benefits for companies:

  • Less downtime through automation.
  • Increased efficiency through reduced or constant cycle times.
  • Uniform tasks can be taken over by the robot cell; staff is relieved, and hard-to-fill vacancies are eliminated (counteracting staff shortages).
  • State-of-the-art solution for increased competitiveness.

Being able to use automation solutions flexibly

The future of manufacturing doubtlessly lies in simplifying processes through automation. However, retrofitting existing machines or purchasing new, automated machines is often very expensive, especially for machine tools and injection molding machines. This financial aspect keeps many companies from investing in automation. However, companies should bear in mind that foregoing state-of-the-art solutions not only results in higher personnel costs and more complex processes, but also increases the risk of losing touch with the competition in the long term.

Automation solutions are often inflexible
Although there are solutions on the market to simplify processes through automation, these solutions are usually not very flexible and can be difficult to integrate into existing machines. Often these solutions lack the necessary standardization while at the same time offering flexible adaptation options for different scenarios and environments. Consequently, most companies continue to rely on manual processes for their machine tools and injection molding machines – which leads to the following disadvantages:

  • Companies cannot benefit from the cost and time advantages that automation brings.
  • Employees have to carry out monotonous work processes. It increases the susceptibility to errors and vacancies are often difficult to fill.
  • Important data that could easily be provided by an automated solution is either not collected at all or only with difficulty.

In short, flexible and modern automation solutions are needed here in order to benefit from the numerous advantages the modern working world has to offer.
