Our robotics automation solutions are often married into larger systems where they perform multi-step sequences in a hybrid process. And while simple six-axis robots are readily available commercially, they typically lack the custom programming required to perform precise movements and are without the sophisticated integration configuration necessary for a larger, more complicated manufacturing line.
Northfield Automation Systems delivers the equipment, handles the customer-specific programming and brings its vast integration expertise to bear in creating a solution that works flawlessly – again and again – while delivering significant value.
What does this look like? Well, perhaps you have a roll of discrete product (wafers, etc.) that needs to be singulated and laminated to another discrete product. NAS has created robotics systems where a robot selects the product (wafer, etc.) out of a stack and places it on a transport. The wafer is then laminated to a substrate on a roll, placed on a conveyor and then cut into individual parts.
Our custom software programming and deep understanding of interfaces and materials makes a project of this nature squarely part of our core competencies.
