The Challenge

TETRA Industriservice Group have been approached by several potential customers in search for a supplier of custom-design bent metal components. The main challenges are:

  • To automate fully manual production process
  • To introduce state of art automation tools at a low cost thanks to incorporation of existing equipment
  • To decrease material loss caused by incorrect processing

Planned solution:

CMBIT will develop a complete robotic solution utilizing the HORSE framework. The following components are going to be used in the workcell:

  • The HORSE MPMS will be used for process supervising
  • An industrial robot will be controlled via the Hybrid Task Supervisor and will utilize the intuitive programming tools offered by HORSE for efficient and error-proof operating or previously manually operated machines
  • RFID identification will be introduced for easy process management and product traceability and integrated with the HORSE framework
  • Global Awareness System will be used for constant monitoring of workspace production cycle deviations
  • The highest possible safety standards thanks to introducing laser scanners and light curtains directly connected to the robot and the machines, but also to the MPMS to handle the occurring exceptions
