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.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. introduced new low cost bag inserter for the case liner. This centralized robotic packaging system takes product from multiple molding machines and sends to a centralized packaging cell. The turnkey system erect boxes, inserts plastic bag into the box, tracks the product and packs product into its proper case, check weighs for proper count, labels and seals case automatically. The machine is used for medical, pharmaceutical and food industries. This machine provides fast change over and uses bags with perforation on the roll. The machine is integrated with the standard case erector and operates at the rate of up to 20 bags per minute.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. built robotic small pouch case packing system. This system is designed to provide tracking, weighing and selective case packing for multiple products, coming to the cell from several upstream lines. The system tracks ID numbers of the product from each line and selectively packs the product in the case that is assigned for each product. The system automatically prints and applies labels on the cases being packed.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. engineered Robotic Modular Insert Molding loader. This system designed to handle two products on demand. The system has two products vibro-feeders with its parts delivery and staging area, providing multiple parts placement into the cavities of the mold of the plastic injection machine. The system is set up to be rolled to the standard insert molding press that uses indexing dial with lower mold tooling. The 6 axis robot with quick release end effector is capable to pick and place miniature components’ and provide vision inspection of the mold prior to indexing.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. provides Factory Automation Consulting Services for Medical Device Automation. The application of Robotics for assembly of Medical Devices, Leon Gurevich is interviewed by the Manufacturing Engineering Magazine, SME, Page 70. (See the article in Medical Manufacturing Magazine 2008).
Rapid Development Services, Inc. expands its Factory Automation Consulting Services to serve international markets. Company capitalizes it extensive knowledge and experience in the field of industrial automation by offering its existing and new clients new services. (See Factory Automation). (Внедрение Автоматических линий в промышленности).
RDS, Inc. has introduced new robotic cell for Beef and Pork processing. The robot can identify the area of the carcasses to be processed by vision camera and engage with the continuously moving product to perform various vision guided operations.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new Robotic Bag Palletizing Cell capable of handling 1, 2 or 3 bags per cycle. This cell can provide flexibility of palletizing various size bags without gripper replacement. The advantages of this new technology is its ability to palletize bags by controlling overlap of the face to face wedged top of the bags to create accurate, stable, bags inward leaning pallets.
RDS, Inc. built robotic cell for secondary fabrication of the aircraft rivets. The system is designed to handle various size rivets and provide crimping and gauging of the product. Dual sets of tooling has allowed for uninterrupted production while one set of tooling is prepared for set up and calibrated, another set is accessed by the robot.
RDS, Inc. developed new type of Robotic Screw -driving Cell for appliance assembly. This Cell employs six axis robots capable of driving self tapping screws at variety of angles in relation to the work surface. The cell has ability to feed short screws that cannot be fed by conventional tube feeding. The rate of the system is up to 20 screws per minute. The torques limits can be set and location of the passed or failed screws are displayed. System includes feeding and registration conveyor to transfer appliance in and out of the Cell.
