When Jaguar Landrover installed a new robot line using special purpose machine supplier Simms Engineering, Monk Conveyors was asked to supply the conveyor system. The system used roller conveyors to feed car bumper fixtures within a robot cell. The layout was a closed loop, so robots could pick the bumper from the fixtures and they would be returned to the start of the process. The fixtures were 1950mm x 880mm weighed 160kg.
Sixteen individual 24vdc drive motors created sixteen powered zones.This allowed a continual flow of fixtures without allowing them to touch each other.
Line speed was 15m/min and 30m/min.
Monk Conveyors worked with Simms Engineering to provide detailed approval drawings before manufacture.
