Cobot Automation Case Studies

Cobots are quickly becoming more and more popular with businesses of all sizes due to the benefits they offer and their ease of deployment. The small, flexible robots allow SME’s to remain competitive and larger businesses to respond to changes, improve efficiencies and reduce costs.

Reeco has worked with a number of companies in a variety of industries, installing over 70 bespoke automation solutions in the last four years, take a look at some of our Cobot applications/case studies below.

Wrexham based automotive supplier Hi Mark increases recruitment thanks to productivity rise from cobot installation which has increased productivity and removed the repetitive tasks from staff…

Case Study…

The integration of this Cobot provided MINI with a system that encompasses human-robot collaboration with its unique process design. The system has enabled MINI to significantly improve…

Case Study…

This installation was to automate the fixing process for the ‘Anti Roll Bar’ consisting of four fixings. Historically, this process has always been manually completed, with the plant producing in-excess…

Cobot Packing Automation Solutions…

Packing Automation

ABC Nutritionals deployed our TX20 Pouch Filling system, designed to eliminate repetitive pouch filling tasks, therefore allowing the operators to carry out additional tasks…

Pouch Filling…

The TX20 is small, compact and effective, offering up to 20 packs per minute and quick changeover of products, with operators only having to load empty pouches into the machine…

Pouch Filling…

Robots excel at manipulating product; their operational flexibility allows them to perform additional tasks such as depalletizing before presenting trays to a printer and palletising once more…

RB1200 Palletiser…

Following initial conversations, a demonstration took place to show how a human-robot collaboration (HRC) could speed up this procedure on the packaging line. The initial demonstration was successful…

Case Packing & Loading…

Our RB1200 Palletiser palletising 11KG boxes at a cycle time of 10-12 picks per minute. The RB1200 is capable of working to the full extremities of its specifications. The RB1200 is a market ready…

Cobot Assembly Automation Solutions…

Assembly Automation

Supporting Cobots in being fully autonomous in screw tightening applications, Screw feeders are an essential component in allowing Cobots to run for a long time unaided, improving productivity and uptime…

screw Tightening…

Screw tightening applications may require specified levels of torque, which Cobots can achieve repeatedly. Integrating Cobots into assembly lines can help standardise and support production goals…

screw Tightening…

As Cobots are closer in payload and reach capabilities to humans they are better at mimicking smaller human tasks, such as ensuring bolts are tightened, with greater precision…

bolt tightening…

Where accuracy and production requirements are strict, automating bolt tightening with robots provides an additional layer of quality assurance, allowing you to tighten to precise torque values…

bolt Tightening…

Robots excel at manipulating materials, operating much like a human arm, they can complete complex series’ of movements on their own, unlike more traditional mechanical methods of automation…

bolt Tightening…

By having a robot dispense the proper amount of glue, it standardises the whole gluing and bonding process. Robotics turns the task from a variable one, to a measurable one with data and results…

Gluing & Dispensing…

Improved quality and consistency is a benefit sought by many manufacturers. Cobots’ high accuracy and repeatability make them great at tasks which require continuous operation with a uniform output…

Automated Assembly…

As robots can be equipped with an undefined number of tooling solutions, from market ready tools such as grippers to bespoke tools such as dispensers, they are effective in most material handling applications…

Automated Assembly…

More traditional automation systems are ‘hard’ mechanical machinery which are inflexible and thus difficult to adapt to new products. Newer automation methods, such as Cobots have bridged this gap…

Automated Assembly…

Combining Cobots with other automation solutions such as bowl feeders, we are able to create more self sufficient solutions which are capable of fiddly placements and assembly tasks…

Cobot Pick & Place Automation Solutions…

Pick and Place

Pick and Place robots ca help tackle repetitive work, offering an automated solution to the movement of materials. Product testing can be long and repetitive, making it perfect for Cobots…

Pick & Place…

Pick & place automation offers manufacturers an efficient and cost-effective alternative to a repetitive process. Pick & place solutions are highly customisable, making the benefits accessible…

Pick & Place…

Other Cobot Automation Solutions…

Cobot automation

Capable of depalletizing, Cobots can be used to break down fresh pallets of packaging and load them into machines. Automating this means a continuous feed of packaging with little down time…
