rpGatta has experience in designing entire urethane apply cells which include the custom design and integration of:
Glass Load Station capable of housing and auto-centering 3 pieces of glass at a time for up to 3 different models each.
6-Axis Robot with multiple vacuum cups on the end effector to be able to transport up to 3 pieces of glass at a time. It is capable of picking the glass, moving the glass around the urethane dispensing nozzle, and placing on an unload station table.
Urethane Dispensing Station with an automatic cleaning function after set number of cycles. As the robot moves the glass components around and beneath the nozzle, the 7th axis servo controlling the nozzle will rotate accordingly to ensure the bead profile is consistent around the perimeter.
Glass Unload Station Table where the robot will gently transfer the glass onto set locators then pneumatically actuated to pivot forward for operators of another machine to easily access the glass.
Safety Fence and Other Safety Features to keep operators safe at all times during each cycle.

rpGatta is an experienced and authorized integrator of Fanuc, ABB, Motoman / Yaskawa, and Kuka robotic systems:
Check out this video we did with Fanuc on our Crankshaft Machining Center Servo Gantry Loading System.
It's the start of a new year and rpGatta recently completed expanding our 28,000 square foot building another 10,000 square feet! This addition will allow us to increase our build capacity and give us the ability to simulate even larger assembly lines.
Two additional 5-ton cranes and a much larger paint booth were also part of the expansion project.
The expansion came just in time. Our Engineering Department recently finished designing an Engine Cylinder Head Assembly Line (shown below) that will be 30 feet wide and a total of 63 feet in length. It consists of a pallet conveyor, multiple manual and automated assembly stations, and utilizes a total of five Fanuc robots. This line will be used to assemble three different models of engine cylinder heads and have the flexibility to accommodate additional models if needed in the future.
In addition to this assembly line, our engineers recently completed the designs of two servo controlled bushing presses and a sidewall framing fixture The design of a robotic leak test cell is almost complete. All of these systems will be assembled and debugged on our shop floor throughout the next few months.
Our Field Service Engineers are currently installing two Instrument Panel Installation Assists and recently installed an rpGatta designed and built Robotic Blaster Booth Cell. The entire system was NRTL certified for a Class 2 Division 1 hazardous location. Prior to the installation, the operators were manually blasting the parts wearing full blast suits and respirators. They now sit in the comfort of an air conditioned office where they control and monitor the process via joysticks and remote cameras.
