Robotic Staple Station

 

Tooling Technology and Automation has utilized the flexibility of a six-axis robot ot rapidly staple and assemble plastic components. A precision CNC cut aluminum nest with replaceable, hardened, staple receiver inserts allows for repeatable part location.

 

Tooling Technology and Automation Robotic Staple StationThe robot installs each staple then verifies it was properly driven and located before moving to the next point. A fiber optic sensor continuously monitors the amount of staples present in the gun. When the staples run low, the robot finishes processing its current part then reorients itself to an ergonomic reload position, allowing the operator to refill the gun with a minimum of machine downtime. Interchangeable nest plates allow for unlimited part combinations for future applications.
