OHTAKE

Automatic Screw Feeders provide a consistent supply of screws, consistently presenting them in the same location for easy pick up. Not limited to small or large operations, automatic screw feeders are beneficial to any screw driving process, from the larger assembly line to the smaller solo workstation. Their small design allows them to be integrated seamlessly for a quick boost of efficiency. Screw Feeders can be used for both robotic and manual operations, for fully automated or semi-automated screw driving tasks.

OHTAKE – Japanese Quality

Having over 20 years’ experience in the design and development of Automatic Screw Feeders, OHTAKE are renowned for their high Japanese-quality and wide product range which caters to an array of production requirements.

Using a horizontal rail system, OHTAKE’s products support different materials, shapes, workstyles and workpiece dimensions. Their unique design and technology can hugely contribute to production line efficiency.

Resilient to Clogging

Unlike gravity-based mechanisms, OHTAKE’s products utilise vibrations and a horizontal rail to convey screws, eliminating problems such as screw clogging and ensuring reliability.

Increased Speed

Achieve a three to fivefold increase in working speed when compared to manual work with an average feed time of 2 per second.

Supports Standard Tools

No specialised tooling required, use with standard screwdrivers and magnetic screwdriver bits.

Versatile Machines

Supporting numerous screw types via their interchangeable rails; the NSB series supports 8 different screw diameters.

Robotic Screw Feeding

The introduction of robotics into assembly processes such as assembly have changed the way we view automation possibilities. Technologies such as Cobots overcome many of the production challenges we previously faced, hitting a perfect mid-range of reach and payload which are more comparable to that of a human operator, making them easier to integrate onto an assembly line along with equipment such as screw feeders for automatic screw tightening processes.

Manual processes in areas such as electronics can be problematic due to the small fastenings used, this can lead to production inconsistencies. Robotic screw feeders, when integrated correctly with the appropriate technology, can help relieve these issues and streamline production.

Screw Feeder Demo

See our video of a recent robotic screw tightening application we developed for a client, utilising a Cobot and the NJR OHTAKE screwfeeder which is an all-round performer. The full application utilises multiple screw feeders for different production scenarios, allowing for on-demand production of appropriate components.

This process involved the tightening of many screws, thus automating it increased the levels of consistency and provided the manufacturer with a more measurable cycle time whilst utilising operators for more valuable tasks.

Manual Screw Feeding

For those manufacturers whose processes are better suited to manual operation, screw feeders are beneficial here also. Screws can be small and fiddly to work with, making them particularly problematic overtime as productivity dwindles and output becomes less consistent. Screw feeders can compliment manual processes, perfectly supplementing human workers by eliminating issues of repeatability.

Channelled pick up points make it effortless for operators to pick up screws from the feeder with screwdrivers, simply leaving them to replenish the chamber once empty. Additionally, hoppers can be fitted to increase the capacity and improve uptime.

Benefits of Automatic Screw Feeders

Screw feeders have a simplistic design for quick integration into any most processes, simply position the feeder in the best place and hit the power switch. Screws can be added to the scooping chamber in bulk for simple refills, hoppers are also available to extend the uptime of the feeder.

Manual and Automatic Screw Feeding

Both manual and automatic screw feeding systems can be catered to with OHTAKE products. Robotic and manual feeders present plenty of choice for those looking for a fully automatic solution, or those looking for a semi-automated solution using manually operated screwdrivers within a solo workstation.

Production Efficiency

With enhanced repeatability comes more consistent throughput and uniform cycle times. A measurable output can be beneficial to management for decision making, as well as helping reduce production bottle necks, errors, failures etc.

Enhanced Repeatability

Consistently presenting screws into a repeatable position greatly enhances production repeatability, saving operators from fumbling with small or large quantities of screws.

Compact Design

Their small size and compact design allow them to be easily deployed into areas with limited worktop space. Multiple feeders can be deployed together for production flexibility and presentation of varying screw types.
