Robot solution for dispensing and casting light metal

Automated and precise dispensing and casting of aluminum using robots represents a special challenge. While the pouring basin in the die-casting process is mostly accessible from above, the filling chamber of a die-casting machine is not as easy to reach. In addition, tight spaces in the production environment, especially in existing machine systems, make it much more difficult to use a robot solution.

However, using detailed robot simulations and an analysis of different process situations, we were able to develop and implement a cost-effective solution that consists of a standard industrial robot and a modified casting axis. This machine system now creates, dispenses, transports and casts melt with a high level of dispensing precision and flexibility.

It has significantly improved the productivity of the casting process.

For almost 25 years, we have planned, developed and constructed robot-supported production systems as well as processing, assembly and handling solutions for our customers. Our more than 1,000 projects successfully implemented – from the robot cell to the completely interconnected production system – are a testament to our process expertise and experience across all industries.

We focus on custom-made solutions that include process analysis and design, software development and machine construction. We deliver them turnkey ready so they easily integrate into your production environment. We also offer standardized modular systems that can be easily and flexibly modified and are scalable to meet your production requirements.

We have compiled several sample projects so you can better understand how we operate.
