ShopBot Tools in Medium/Large Production Settings
ShopBot for Production
Whether you call it “lean” manufacturing, “cellular” production, or “just-in-time” fabrication, the logic and efficiencies of methods developed by Japanese auto manufacturers that focus on agility are now appreciated as key to the success for both small and large businesses in a globally competitive world.
Robotics and automation are important for production, but robotic capabilities need to be integrated into the cellular approach. For this they must be adaptable, flexible, and somewhat mobile. ShopBots help manufacturers move away from traditional, capital intensive CNC equipment that is enterprise-centric and thus inflexible -- a likely bottleneck for production -- to CNC equipment that can affordably be distributed to multiple production operations where it is easily reconfigured to exactly match the task needs of each cell.
“We can configure each tool differently for different types of products, without the expense of a bigger machine,” he says. “In the newest machine we have about $25,000 invested, so about every five weeks it pays for itself.”
“I am always looking for ways to streamline the production of our aftermarket airline seating components. With the ShopBot Buddy®, I can ‘break a man from a machine’ in order to be working at two processes simultaneously. The ShopBot allows me to increase daily production numbers significantly.”
- Ease of configuration means operations can often be changed, modified, or upgraded on-the-fly without the need to involve extra engineers or integrators. Flexibility, mobility, and affordability also make redundancy practical.
- ShopBots provide the performance and cut quality of tools five to 10 times as expensive. For everyday tasks such as drilling, trimming, panel processing, 3-axis or 5-axis machining or carving, ShopBots are the efficient choice. This performance/price ratio is the leverage that allows practical multiple cell-based operations that will improve your bottom line.
- Distributed CNC is now an achievable reality because of the remarkable production speeds of ShopBot Tools coupled with their affordable price points. ShopBots offer a right-sized, flexible solution for many production situations.
