An innovative transfer robot for metal stamping machinery that improves speed and accuracy and no longer requires presses to be stopped during the transfer process will be on display Nov. 6-9, 2017, at FABTECH in Chicago’s McCormick Place.

Oriimec will showcase an entire press transfer system, featuring its ORII RHQ transfer robot and Komatsu presses, as part of its press automation booth, #A5048.

Also on display for the North American metal forming market, will be the ORII HR3 compact press feeder, in use with Komatsu presses at Komatsu Booth #A5231.

RHQ Transfer Robot

The RHQ surpasses the performance of older robot transfer technologies that required the press to stop before the robot could move in and out of the press.

The RHQ press automation robot utilizes two-axis, servo-driven technology to improve speed and accuracy and synchronizes with the stamping machine’s crank motion to maximize strokes per minute in processing time.

Advantages of Press-to-Press Transfer Systems

Orii’s series of press robots support press room automation with refined designs and a wide variety of types and variations.

Press-to-press robotic transfer systems offer a number of advantages for stamping manufacturers:

  • System flexibility: ORII press-to-press robots offer the ability to change the stamping machinery layout without having to make facility or foundation modifications.
  • Lower cost: The initial investment cost is much lower than a dedicated transfer press system, including accessory equipment to handle large tooling on the shop floor and in the toolroom.
  • Adaptable to various stamping machines and configurations: ORII press-to-press transfer systems work with gap-frame presses to straight-side stamping machines. A wide range of peripheral components can be combined with ORII’s press transfer systems to construct flexible and efficient lines. Attachments and peripheral devices enable free line configurations, such as U-shaped and L-shaped stamping machinery lines.

HR3 Series Compact Press Feeder

The ORII HR3 Series compact press feeder offers features that set it apart from other manufacturers’ feeding equipment.

More power and intelligent functions have been added to a system offering multi-purpose capabilities.

To provide additional human working space, the size has been compacted to a total length of 3,734 mm (LCC04, 05, 06 HR3) without sacrificing functionality. The press feeder handles material from 400 mm (15 inches) to 1,300 mm (51 inches) wide and up to 6.0 mm (0.236 inch) thick and can be used for a wide variety of purposes.

ORII offers nine models of straightener-feeder systems that have been updated to include 25 variations. The company incorporated extensive knowledge of metal stamping and feedback from customers to provide updated systems that satisfy every need.

ORII compact press feeders efficiently process materials from .012 inch to .472 inch thick and up to 74 inches wide.

Why Buy ORII Press Automation Equipment?

With more than 50% of the Japanese automotive metal stamping market, Oriimec has become the go-to company for press-to-press transfer systems and coil feed systems. Oriimec works closely with its metal stamping customers to ensure the absolute highest quality in engineering and automation.

Its compact feed systems have been copied but never duplicated.
