Global company contracts Aloi to install automated plate handling cell

A global company has recently contracted Aloi to aid in the development and installation of a new robotic plate handling system. The cell features a Fanuc LR Mate series robot that utilizes Fanuc iRVision to quickly and accurately locate parts on a conveyor, orient itself, pick the part at the center, and place the part at a specific orientation onto a trademark labeling system. The system is designed for quick on-the-fly changes to different part numbers with varying sizes and shapes. Due to plant shutdown requirements, total project time is less than 8 weeks from initial equipment order to production.
