OnRamp Solutions’ MES – Shop Floor Technology Revolutionizes Welding Processes

September 7, 2023

In a recent breakthrough, OnRamp Solutions, leveraging our MES – Shop Floor technology, achieved a remarkable milestone through the deployment of an advanced welding station, further enhanced by the incorporation of a collaborative robot (cobot) for one of our esteemed clients. This groundbreaking innovation has played a pivotal role in enhancing the quality, efficiency, and reliability of our client’s manufacturing operations.

Revolutionizing Welding with Cobot Integration

At the core of this innovation lies a seamless and highly efficient process. Here’s a breakdown of how our cobot operation seamlessly integrates into the manufacturing workflow:

  1. Part Placement: The operator places the designated part on a dedicated pick-up location within the work center.
  2. Cobot Precision: A cobot, picks up the designated part from its position.
  3. Welding Excellence: The part is moved to the welding station, where the welding process is executed.
  4. Post-Weld Handling: Once the welding task is completed, the cobot moves the welded part and places it in the finish location.
  5. Seamless Transition: The operator moves the welded part from the designated finish location, adds a plug for a paint operation, and places that part on the rack that will be transported to the paint line when full or upon the job’s completion.
  6. Repeatable Efficiency: This streamlined cycle continues until all parts required for the work order are successfully completed, ensuring a continuous and efficient production flow.

Tailored Solutions for Unique Needs

What sets OnRamp Solutions apart is our commitment to adaptability. We understand that every manufacturing environment is distinct, and our technology can be tailored to seamlessly integrate with any cobot. This ensures that each of our clients receives a custom-tailored solution that perfectly aligns with their specific requirements.

Elevating Precision and Efficiency

The successful implementation of this innovative solution has not only enhanced the overall efficiency of our client’s manufacturing processes but has also significantly elevated the precision levels in welding tasks within the industrial production landscape. Beyond welding, this technology has also streamlined parts handling, preparation for paint, and various other critical aspects of the production process, contributing substantially to our customer’s success.

At OnRamp, we take immense pride in our ability to drive positive change in the manufacturing sector. Our MES – Shop Floor technology, coupled with cobot integration, is a testament to our dedication to innovation and excellence.

We look forward to continuing our journey of empowering manufacturers with cutting-edge solutions that redefine industry standards and pave the way for a brighter, more efficient future.
