ABB Robotics gear handling automated cell

Automated Cell Handles Gears during Heat-Treatment Process
ABB Robotics has developed a robotic gear-handling cell to transfer gears between alloy trays and baskets in the heat-treatment process that transforms “green” gears into “hard” gears.

Robotic Cell for Handling Gears
The less manual handling of a gear before and after the heat-treating process, the better. This robotic gear-handling cell automates this critical stage, increasing both safety and part quality.
