To succeed in today’s flexible automation, Delta Robots are indispensable these days for certain applications. Accuracy combined with high speed increase productivity and are therefore essential for successful companies.
Robotunits is setting new standards in the area of robot cells with their patented aluminium extrusion and connection technology. This technology guarantees lifelong vibration-proof connections and overall cell strengths comparable to welded steel frames. All this combined with the ability to easily add doors and other components to the frame make a very efficient alternative to the traditionally welded frames.
This application shows a Spider Robot with an additional camera for accurate orientation and positioning of parts. This robot frame is entirely built with standard components of the Robotunits Modular Automation System. The form-located and therefore vibration-proof connection technology in conjunction with the patented aluminium extrusion technology guarantees life-long strength and precision. Users of these robot cells additionally benefit from significantly shorter manufacturing times of the cells as well as easy integration of conveying technology in and out of the cell.
Traditional steel welded cells are inflexible and require a high number of manufacturing processes. Changes and additions to cells are ineffective and expensive. By using a Robotunits Cell however, you are reducing your manufacturing time and increase your flexibility considerably.

It allowed our customer to increase production speed and ultimately increase profits.
Robotunits Australia has released a crossover conveyor. It is a very costeffective solution to transport goods around a 90-degree corner. Generally, modular or slat-chain conveyors have to be used in these situations but they are quite expensive in comparison. Crossover Conveyors can be built to a maximum of 200mm belt width. Lightweight products, which don’t have to be placed in a particular orientation, are best suited for the crossover conveyor. The unit is based on standard Robotunits C4N Conveyors and can therefore be delivered within one working week from time of order. Of course each crossover conveyor is designed to exact customer specifications.

We have been working with the leading checkweigher suppliers in Australia on many projects and supplied our conveyors as part of the overall solutions.
Checkweighers are automatic weighing devices to check the weight of goods on a manufacturing or sorting line. They are used in a wide range of industries like Pharmaceutical, Logistics, Freight & Distribution, Confectionery, Fresh Food, Pet Food and general Manufacturing. At their core, checkweighers use a conveyor, which is mounted on weighing cells. Many of these weighing devices need to be built to exact specification so they meet the exact customer criteria. Robotunits conveyors are often used by the leading Australian checkweigher manufacturers.

We supply standard conveyors but also customised solutions with features like tracking strips or balanced rollers to guarantee weighing accuracy. Our conveyors are also used as separating devices to make sure products are arriving individually at the weighing station. In some cases we also supply conveyors to reject goods, which are under or over weight specifications.

Manufacturing Companies trying to increase their productivity and stay competitive in the marketplace have many options available to do so. In almost all circumstances it comes down to either lowering costs for raw materials and labor used to produce a product or to increase the workflow which is the total time it takes to manufacture a product. This workflow time must also consider the material flow from goods inwards to dispatch. This is an area in which belt conveyors can make a significant difference in productivity at a low level of investment. If it can be identified that staff constantly run back and forth to retrieve certain goods then a reduction in labor costs is easily achievable in implementing a belt conveyor and run the material workflow more efficiently and thus increase productivity. Often, a strategically placed belt conveyor can have a huge impact on workflow efficiency and most likely the investment costs will be very low.
It is very important to customize these conveyors to exactly match the workflow times needed in any given manufacturing situation. An “off the shelf” conveyor system will most likely cause more problems rather than increasing efficiency. It is imperative that the conveyor system is built to take all variables into consideration. Some of those might be peak and off peak cycle times, size and weight of products to be transported, material of goods or if the system needs to be able to run in accumulation or start/stop mode.
Another very important key aspect to consider is to make sure that an even workflow is achieved throughout the entire process. If one process is running faster then another then bottlenecks are created which diminish the efficiency and mostly achieve nothing else but to move a problem from one area within the manufacturing facility to another. This is where the entire workflow process has to be taken into consideration, from goods inwards through manufacturing to dispatch. This seems quite simple but when looking closely can become quite complex. There are companies that are specialized in working out optimized workflows but for small to medium sized companies a conveyor manufacturer should have a good understanding of what is required and should be able to give some good common sense advice.
Looking at all these variables should make it very clear that belt conveyor systems must be custom designed and built to match the manufacturing environment. Saving a few investment dollars at this stage may turn out to be an expensive mistake.
