Example Video #11: Roll Threading Machine for Hexagonal Socket Head Setscrews - Air cylinder vs IAI's ROBO Cylinder

This system rolls hexagonal socket head setscrews (hereinafter referred to as "setscrews"). Air cylinders are used to introduce material to the rolling machine and remove processed setscrews from the machine.

Improvements achieved by electric actuators:
Point 1: Shock-free operation achieved by deceleration setting function
Point 2: Shorter cycle time by speed & acceleration setting function
Point 3: Substantially shorter line operating hours

Example Video #12: Processing Machine Door Opening/Closing Mechanism - Air cylinder vs IAI's ROBO Cylinder

This system creates tapped holes in aluminum die-cast boxes and finishes (mills) the holes. A vertical articulated robot is used to put in/take out parts to/from the processing machine, and air cylinders are used to open/close the door to the processing machine.

Improvements achieved by electric actuators:
Point 1: Shorter cycle time by acceleration & deceleration setting function
Point 2: If the system is to be used for 10 years, four replacement air cylinders will be required; on the other hand, you won't be needing any replacement ROBO Cylinder.
Point 3: Replacing with the ROBO Cylinders was easy
