Quick changeover during retrofitting-Not all variants can run in one production line at the
same time, which is why the line has to be retrofitted again and again. How can you simplify that?
CORAM TOOLS made its first attempt in the field of high-strength, fiber-reinforced 3D printed parts on a gripper. This implementation made it possible to quickly manufacture individual and lightweight grippers.
If you go through the production at CORAM TOOLS, you will notice that not only one part was produced with the 3D printer, but that various small aids are used everywhere. The simplest things were implemented; From the collecting container to the mounting bracket, production equipment, and production line optimizations have been carried out, which is reflected in an increase in speed and a reduction in downtimes..
The example on the left shows the laser marking step. For this purpose, the recordings are held with optimally designed 3D printed grippers during the labeling. Wherever a laser is used, there is heat. The Onyx grippers have a heat resistance of 145 ° C – and even much more when used for a short period of time.
All saw blades are labeled, sometimes also individually with the customer’s logo. Incorrectly labeled parts are not simply thrown away but are put into a bath with liquid paint remover. The bracket for this is printed with onyx. Despite the very aggressive agent, Onyx easily withstands the challenges!
