Automated finishing with pick & place robotics

Cefla's new Prima is integrated with a “pick-and-place” material handling system for doors. Stacked doors are “picked” via a robotic arm onto the conveyor, sent through the spray-coating machine for finishing, and with a second robot are lifted from the conveyor to the next production stage. The material handling system, which can be turned on or off, further extends Prima’s adaptiveness in being able to finish various component types such as door jambs. Overall, the system increases automation and production efficiencies as well as offers the ability to better allocate labor resources, Cefla adds.
