FANUC helps Mollart create automated cell

Robotics and automation expert FANUC UK has supported deep-hole drilling technology specialist Mollart Engineering in developing an automated three-machine production cell for an automotive customer in China. Designed to manufacture parts for pre-machined transmission shafts used in hydraulic gearboxes, the solution by FANUC and Mollart drills deep holes into shafts to a depth of 384 mm. Operating to a precision level of 0.2 mm at the start of the hole and within 0.3 mm of the deviation at the end of the hole, the production scale has an uptime efficiency of over 90%.
