Greenerd installs two-press production cell

Greenerd Press & Machine Co. recently designed, engineered, built and turnkey-installed an automated two-press, two-robot production cell enabling unattended production of large aluminum pressure vessels. Using sensors to locate pallets of blanks placed in a staging area, a Fanuc robot picks a blank and transfers it to an automated blank lube station. A second robot transfers formed parts to a second Greenerd press for punching. The two-press production cell uses a centralized control station that sets the operating parameters of both presses and controls the action sequences of both robots. All equipment in the cell is automatically updated with new process parameters when changing between products.
