Greenerd Press & Machine Co. has designed, engineered, built and turnkey-installed an automated two-press, tworobot production cell to enable unattended production of large aluminum pressure vessels. Using sensors to locate pallets of blanks in a pallet staging area, the first robot picks a blank, rejects any double-blanks, and transfers the blank to a fully integrated and automated blank lube station. That robot then picks a lubricated blank and loads it into a deep-draw press with a 76-in. stroke. A second robot catches and transfers the formed parts to a second press for a punching operation.
