The Automated Sticky Wax Assembly System was designed for commercial foundries where there is a low-volume, high part diversity and those with high changeover demands. Previously, a unique hot knife, gripper, and runner was required for each part making it impractical for lower-volume, high-changeover jobs.
This new adaptable system eliminates the need for a unique hot knife and gripper allows the robot to dip each part in sticky wax and weld them with the same degree of accuracy, orientation, and precision as our standard APAS. The flexibility of the gripper allows it to pick up many distinct types of parts. Parts can be changed with a simple programming change. Finally, you can now achieve the same high degree of precision, high-yields, and low-scrap levels with this fast, versatile, high-changeover solution.
