The real game-changer in this solution was the frame-to-frame transfers provided by Alba. Two variants were supplied – one with seven v-belts and the other with three v-belts. These transfers ensured that the doors were not just transported efficiently but also aligned perfectly for integration with the edge-bander.
To make life easier for 7robotics, Alba shipped all these components fully assembled. This standard Alba procedure expedited the setup of the robotic cell for testing, allowing 7robotics to focus on fine-tuning their innovative solution.
In the end, 7robotics was able to deliver a turnkey automatic feeding and stacking system, in part, due to Alba’s heavy-duty conveyor system. The solution could handle the significant weight of stacked doors, ensuring that operations ran efficiently and safely. The Kastalon-coated CDLR rollers guaranteed that no doors were harmed in transit, even while accommodating the vast range of sizes.
The frame-to-frame transfers were instrumental in aligning the doors precisely for integration with the edge-bander, making it possible to meet the customer’s speed requirements.
Together, Alba Manufacturing and 7robotics turned a challenging problem into a success story. The custom door industry has a new and innovative solution that can handle their diverse needs, and the end user has a complete, seamless, and efficient process for their operations. In the heart of Roseburg, Oregon, the collaboration between 7robotics and Alba Manufacturing stands as a testament to the power of ingenuity, innovation, and a shared commitment to solving complex problems.
