Further Uses Cases in Industrial Manufacturing

01. Pneumatic Components and Equipment​

The pharmaceutical manufacturing industry grapples with challenges related to precise fluid dispensing, as even minute discrepancies can lead to substantial product quality discrepancies. Leveraging Koganei’s Microfluidic Valves, Humphrey Products’ Solenoid Valves, and Pisco’s Quick Fitting Connections can ensure exact volumes of fluids are dispensed, preventing over or underdosage and ensuring consistent and high-quality pharmaceutical products. This combination helps to overcome inaccuracies in fluid measurements and contributes to the optimization of pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.

High-speed packaging lines often struggle with the rapid, accurate movement of components, causing inefficiencies and potential bottlenecks in production lines. Incorporating Pisco’s Speed Controllers, Fabco’s Pneumatic Cylinders, and Koganei’s Actuators help regulate speed and facilitate optimal movement and control of components within such packaging lines, addressing inefficiencies and ensuring precision in packaging processes.

Metalworking processes require extremely accurate positioning of components to avoid operational errors and maintain quality. Using Humphrey Products’ ProControl Proportional Valves, Pisco’s Tubing and Fittings, and Koganei’s Shock Absorbers can significantly enhance accuracy in component positioning, decreasing error margins and guaranteeing high-quality metal products.

Material mishandling in assembly lines can lead to significant damages and productivity loss. Utilizing Koganei’s Air Grippers, Fabco’s Rotary Actuators, and Humphrey Products’ Quick Exhaust Valves can provide secure and precise gripping and movement of materials, mitigating the risk of material damage and ensuring seamless assembly operations.

Ensuring defect-free plastic components is a constant struggle in plastic injection molding processes due to issues related to vacuum maintenance and mold cleanliness. By leveraging Pisco’s Vacuum Ejectors, Humphrey Products’ Pilot Valves, and Koganei’s Ionizers, manufacturers can maintain the necessary vacuum and ensure mold cleanliness, thereby significantly reducing defect rates and improving component quality.

02. Electrical Motion Systems​

In CNC machining, precision and accuracy in component machining are paramount. By utilizing RTA’s Stepper Motors, such as the SMD Series, in conjunction with their precision drives, manufacturers can ensure enhanced accuracy in tool positioning and movement, optimizing material removal and achieving high-quality machined components, addressing common inaccuracies found in complex machining processes.

The inconsistency in conveyor belt speeds in high-speed packaging lines poses a significant challenge, leading to potential product damage, misalignment, and overall inefficiency in packaging processes. By integrating RTA’s Linear Electrical Actuators and Servo Motors, industries can achieve precise speed and positioning control of conveyor belts. This implementation ensures the seamless and efficient operation of packaging lines, maintaining the integrity of packaged goods, reducing product wastage and downtime, and ensuring that packaging operations can keep up with high-speed production demands without compromising quality.

For industries relying heavily on welding applications, inaccurate and unsteady robotic arm movement can compromise the quality of welds, leading to structural weaknesses in the assembled products. Incorporating RTA’s Stepper Motors and Servo Drives can significantly enhance the precision and stability of robotic arms, ensuring high-quality welds and adherence to stringent manufacturing standards. This increased accuracy reduces the likelihood of defective products, boosting overall production quality and efficiency in welding-based manufacturing sectors.

The demand for intricate designs and high precision in laser cutting applications necessitates advanced solutions to avoid inaccuracies that can degrade product quality. RTA’s Stepper Motors, coupled with their sophisticated drives, provide exceptional control in laser cutting processes, allowing for the creation of intricate and precise cuts. This precise control is crucial for meeting the high-quality standards required in industries such as aerospace and automotive manufacturing, where the smallest imperfection can have significant implications.

Inaccurate drilling operations in industrial manufacturing can lead to misaligned holes and compromised structural integrity of components. RTA’s advanced Stepper Motors and Drives offer enhanced control in automated drilling operations, ensuring accurate hole placements and maintaining structural integrity. This enhanced control is crucial for producing high-quality components, reducing the need for rework and ensuring the reliability of the final products in sectors like aerospace and automotive, where component failure is not an option.

03. Machine Vision Systems​

In precision machining, the S70 can ensure the dimensions, surface finish, and geometrical tolerances are within specified limits. The system can detect minute deviations in machined parts such as gears, shafts, and bearings, providing real-time feedback to operators, enabling immediate corrective actions and ensuring high-quality output.

In the production of plastic components, the S70 can identify issues like warping, color inconsistencies, and surface defects. By doing so, it ensures that only components meeting the stringent quality standards are incorporated into the final products, reducing wastage and rework.

The S70 is invaluable in inspecting cast and forged parts for defects such as blowholes, cuts, and inclusions. Its precision allows for the detection of internal and surface defects, ensuring structural integrity and compliance with quality standards, which is crucial in high-stress applications.

At various stages of assembly lines, the S70 can verify the presence, position, and orientation of components, ensuring that the assemblies are built correctly and efficiently. Its real-time feedback enables swift rectification of any assembly anomalies, maintaining a smooth production flow and preventing downstream complications.
