Custom Automation Project Helps Roofing Company

This is a bespoke machine which was selected instead of an industrial robotic solution due to both cost and lead time. As it moves product in two axes, with a rotation, a robot wasn’t strictly required and as such Autronics designed a machine around two linear gantry stages, with a tool able to reorient the part through 180-degrees.

Driven by barebones engineering to achieve the cost target of the customer, this machine has been operating for six years and is now touted as one of the best investments the company ever made.
