Automated Box Cutter Project

As machines age, components wear out. This customer had an existing box cutting machine that the original SCARA robot failed. MAC Engineering replaced the robot and recontrolled the machine to an updated PLC at the same time. A new Fanuc SCARA robot which will have a 100,000 MTBF will last the company over 20 years of production. The updated PLC will also allow them to not have to worry about the electrical components failing on the machine either. With the mechanical portions of the machine still in solid shape, a simple recontrol and robot replacement saved the company over $100,000 on a new machine.
