BCI Installs Fanuc R200A Robotic Grinding Cell and Re-Organizes Mill Room

Bremen Castings installed a Fanuc R200A (6-axle) Robotic Grinding Cell which increases BCI’s automatic grinding capacity.  The robotic cell includes two robots and 6 different grinders.  The operator loads castings onto a belt which feeds into the robotic cell.  The robot grinds the part and places it onto a container.  The cell will initially focus on grinding heavier parts produced at BCI to help reduce operator fatigue.

During this same time, BCI re-organized its Mill Room to provide a more efficient material flow and increase overall grinding serviceability.  A transfer car, also installed, will automatically transport castings from the blast machine to individual workstations.  There are 8 manual grinding stations, 3 auto-grind stations, and the new robotic cell fed from this new system.
