Material Handling Systems

Automated Tire Bead Handling System


  • (4) Fanuc Robots Total
  • The R-2000 Robot transfers tire beads from a winding machine to custom hanging details on a custom overhead weldment
  • The (3) LR-Mate Robots individually pick up the tire beads and load and unload them to and from (3) bead covering machines
  • The R-2000 Robot loads stacks of beads onto a rack or cart using vision
  • Custom rack/cart transfer system that handles either variant and automatically transfers them in and out of the system

Robotic Rubber Slab Transfer System


  • This system involves the material handling of rubber slabs  which includes the custom design and integration of:
    • 6-Axis Robot suspended from the underside of the gantry
    • End Effector capable of locating and gripping the material
    • Conveyor for the pallet indexing of the material
    • Prep Station for the initial alignment of the material for the start of the cycle
    • Feed-Stitcher for the automated process of stitching the material together
    • Pallet Stacker for the loading of the material
    • Safety Fence to ensure complete safety at all times during the cycle

Bumper Fascia Laser Cutting CNC System


  • Fixtured Turntable System for locating and feeding rear bumpers
  • Flying Optic Laser System
  • Laser Cutting System Enclosure with multiple other safety features
  • System does not require the floor to rotate as most do

Weld Inspection Lift Stations


  • Consists of air operated lifting masts set to the side of the vehicle
  • Lifting arms will cantilever underneath the pallet and lift the pallet and vehicle
  • The placement of the Lifting Masts under the rocker flange along one side of the conveyor allows for 24-27in of vertical lift
  • Pushbutton controls allow the operator to raise and lower the system

Spare Tire Rollover Systems



  • VFD controlled synchronous carrier tracks along with the vehicle
  • Automatically loads, rolls over, and lifts spare tires under the vehicle
  • Lift arm for mounting torque tool

RSM Frame Transfer System



  • Robot to automatically pick RSM frames from AGVs utilizing 3D vision and place them onto a prep table

Crankshaft Material Handling Gantry


  • 650 Foot Long 17 axis Servo Gantry Crankshaft Loading System
  • 14-Crankshaft Loading, Buffer, Crossover and Unload Conveyors
  • Multiple Quality Control Takeout Stations
  • 17 Operator HMIs
  • Integration of dozens of unique machines including bar code marking, data, and part tracking through grinders, lathes, balancers, hardeners, washers, gauges, mills, laser markers, conveyors, etc.
