Sheet Metal Cabinet Assembly

This project calls for custom handling and assembly of appliance cabinets.  The sheet metal liner sub-components are formed upstream. They are then presented to the flexible (universal) assembly fixture, which is pre-programmed in the system PLC for 35 different cabinet configurations.

Once on the fixture, the cabinet is servo-transferred to the robotic fastening station. Two 6-axis robots equipped with TOX clinching heads join the liner components into a completed cabinet.

After joining, the cabinet is transferred back to the original position, where it is removed and transferred downstream via a servo-driven rack and pinion gantry.
