   Application Example

   Before Improvement

  Previous equipment  

➤ Trays filled with baked cakes come out on a chain conveyor to the X direction.

➤ A sensor detects when the tray reaches position A.

➤ A rod-less air cylinder with an arm sends it to the belt conveyor. (Orientation is changed 90 degrees).

 

  Problems  

➤ The source air pressure changes seasonally and depending on operating conditions of other equipment affects the operation.

➤ At the start of operation, the speed was faster and caused shock. As a result cakes collapsed and they were often disposed.
 

Reject rate 0.4%

   After Improvement

  Improved Equipment  

The air cylinder has been replaced by an ELECYLINDER.
 

  Improvements  

The motorized ELECYLINDER is not affected by air pressure.

In addition, because the speed and acceleration/ deceleration can be set individually, operations are always smooth without shock.

 

Reject rate 0%

  Effects   (Condition: Rejects 120 pcs./day, Cost US$0.15/pc., Annual operation 200 days.)

Reject rate per day has become zero percent.

Profit increased by USD$3,600 per year.
    120 pcs. X US$0.15 x 200 days = US$3,600.
