The rise of automated storage This year, the company has

Manufacturing and electronics industries are automating more than ever. To meet the growing demands of a modern day warehouse, a simple, controlled and eff icient logistics process can be implemented with automated storage and retrieval systems. Industore is the exclusive

supplier of German-manufactured Hänel systems in the UK and Ireland. It will showcase sophisticated, vertical carousel technology at the show. The Hänel Rotomat can be designed to specifications and tailored to a facility. It has error-free retrieval and fast pick rates, allowing manufacturers to maximise productivity and enhance processes.

seen a rise in demand for modern storage systems, particularly in the electronics industry. The automated storage and retrieval systems are particularly suitable in these environments due to an anti-static tray coating to suppress electronic charge build-up. Options include Hänel ClimateStore and CleanStore for storing hyper-sensitive components. There is also the Hänel Rotomat with brass brushes in the carrier arms to reduce ESD. The run speed is 0.15m per second and multi-functional storage carriers are available to suit diff erent-sized electronic components

Robotic bending cell takes hold

Dyna-Cell, a robotic bending cell from LVD UK, has a high-speed electric press brake. The press brake and robot function automate the bending of small- to medium- sized parts, in varying batch sizes, at bending speeds up to 25mm per second. A patent-pending, universal gripper allows users to bend on three sides of a part without regripping. The bending cell combines the

Dyna-Press Pro 40 ton press brake with 1,500mm working length and five-axis back gauge with a Kuka industrial robot in a small footprint of 5.0 x 5.0m. A stacking area has space to load and unload several pallets. The robot unloads finished parts to the appropriate pallet. The design allows for unmanned

or manned operation. The gripper fits parts from 30

x 100mm up to 350 x 500mm and handles parts as heavy as 3.0kg. Gripper suction cups are controlled via off line software and

Engineers visiting this year’s show can talk to the experts at Lee Spring about the design, production and maintenance of spring components. Many spring examples will be on display with expert engineers to discuss your application. The company’s latest catalogue

which has more than 25,000 standard parts will be available on the stand. There are over 2,000 new items including more than 500 new compression springs in metric DIN-Plus dimensions, new extension springs in SS316, new torsion springs in SS316 and high pressure compression springs, including new 600 PSI designs. The company off ers grinding

and plating options, alongside additional available services such as first article inspection, blanket agreements and many material and finish options. Wherever in the world a design or production is based, the company off ers a service package from concept of new products to redesign of legacy items. Based on its team of expert

sales engineers, the company has become the UK supplier of

activated according to part size. As one gripper fits all applications, production is continuous and uninterrupted, says the company. Programming follows the

10-10 rule: 10 minutes for CAM generation of the bending and robot program and 10 minutes for set up and first part generation. When batch sizes are too small to benefit from robot automation, the robot can be ‘parked’ and the press brake can be used in standalone mode. The latest generation LVD

Touch-B 15 inch touchscreen control is integrated with the CADMAN software suite.
