Cabinet Foaming Line

This custom automation system prepares, places, and secures refrigerator cabinets for the appliance industry, for application of insulation foaming in the interior cavities.

Cabinets are pre-heated in custom ovens, and then transferred to the system.  Automated fixturing and tooling ensure that the cabinets hold their shape and position during the customer’s high-pressure foaming operation.

A custom-designed gantry system transfers the foaming apparatus precisely to six separate cells.  The single gantry beam contains 3 independent rack & pinion servo-driven carriages for maximum flexibility.  After foaming, the cabinets are automatically conveyed from the system.

Features

  • Custom-designed gantry serving 3 safety zones
