Integrating robotics to streamline bending processes

Jambmax, a Cape Town based company specializing in the manufacturing of steel door- and window-frames, designing special and architectural frames, approached Robotic Innovations to integrate a Fanuc robot with their new CNC controlled bending press.

The motivation for the implementation of this robotic system was that Jambmax was experiencing problems with the bending accuracy and consistency of their parts. This job is very labour intensive and tedious for employees. A robot system was the perfect solution and due to our extensive experience with this type of application, Robotic Innovations was the natural robotic integrator of choice.

The Fanuc R-2000iB robot seamlessly integrated with the new CNC bending press, ensuring the perfectly choreographed sequence of bending and part positioning that give the perfect results.
