QComp Technologies Inc. has added a new insulated glass (IG) automatic load and unloading system to its glass-handling product line. The new IG system uses a six-axis ABB robot and QComp's machine vision system to unload IG units from the production line and place them into slotted glass racks.
‘Staying competitive in this economy is key for all manufacturers, and glass manufacturers in particular need to maintain quality while reducing costs and increasing productivity,’ states Tom Doyle, president of QComp Technologies. ‘Our new system allows customers to maintain quality by eliminating scratching, reducing labor costs, and increasing safety and production.’
Utlizing an ABB six-axis robot and a proprietary vision technology developed by QComp, the system can precisely locate the rack slots to load and unload glass and can be calibrated for various glass and unit thicknesses. Capable of handling a large range of glass sizes, the QComp system also features seamless integration with line controls, the company notes.
