The RoboFlow™ has three components:
- The QB-2000, an integrated robotic handling station that reduces labor while increasing quality and throughput
- The SW-7000 4-Point Welder
- RoboClean® (RC-2000) Twin-Head Robotic Vinyl Corner Cleaning System
The RoboFlow system follows an integrated computerized schedule (or bar code-generated schedule) to orchestrate the movements and flow of multi-stack vinyl frames or sashes onto a conveyor to the QB (material handling robot), and prepares for the next steps of automation or assembly of the completed frame. The QB, in conjunction with the conveyor, orchestrates movements of the vinyl assemblies into and out of the RoboClean (RC-2000) cleaner. The QB turns the product around to clean all four sides, as well as removes it and places it onto an off-load table that feeds the assembly or glazing lines. The result is a compact vinyl welding and cleaning system that increases quality and throughput, reduces labor and optimizes the efficiency of the operation.
