Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new welding …

Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new welding, polishing, and grinding technology using 6-axis robotics.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new technology for welding and finishing of less then 1/32 thick stainless steel panels. The machine automatically loads and unloads the panels. Panels are welded, grinded, and polished automatically. This 6-axis robotics cell welds various size and shape panels and incorporates a robotic search function to compensate for the variances in parts size and shape from lot to lot. This self-teaching, self programming feature automatically programs the welding and finishing robots for new coordinates of the part.

Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new centralized palletizing …

Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new centralized palletizing technology using 6-axis robots.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new technology that allows operators to enter dimensions of box sizes into the touch screen display. The system automatically programs itself to palletize the new box size. This system is capable of handling box sizes from 6 x 6 x 10 to 16 x 16 x 24 inches. Even tall unstable boxes are palletized in multiple layers on a pallet. The boxed are securely help together through the transfer conveyors, and finally through shrink wrapping before being released to a fork lift operator. The robots end of arm tooling are capable of handling all size boxes, picking and placing slip sheets, and securing the pallets while being transferred through the system.

Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new flexible robotic case packer …

Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new flexible robotic case packer for metal cans of rectangular shape or round shapes.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new flexible robotic case packer for metal cans of rectangular shape or round shapes. This Robotic case loader packs different size metal cans in multiple packaging layouts up to 120 cans per minute. This automatic system erects several case sizes, takes cans from a single file and organizes the cans to pick and place into one or two cases at a time. Case quantities vary from a 4 pack up to a 12 pack. Inspection is also done to the cans to help reduce any down time due to damaged cans coming down the line. The robotic loader provides programmable change over for the family of the cans and multiple case sizes. The system is integrated with standard case erector.
