Robot Automation

Wauseon Machine has come a long way in the past 15 years since integrating our first FANUC robot into a cell with a custom built piece of equipment. Our robotic applications include, but are not limited to:

  • Assembly
  • Dispensing
  • Machine Tending
  • Palletizing
  • Inspection & Testing
  • Material Handling
Overview
Assembly
Precision and flexibility are important factors in an assembly application, and FANUC robots provide both. Additionally, Repeatability Tolerances that are unachievable by a human operator can be reached with a FANUC robot, providing you with multiple benefits when automating your assembly process.
Assembly
Inspection & Testing
We are able to provide inspection and testing of parts using vision products including, but not limited to, Cognex, Banner, KEYENCE, OMRON, and FANUC. These vision systems provide valuable feedback
Inspection & Testing
Machine Tending
Integrating a FANUC robot into your machine tending application can be ideal in situations where parts are too small to be loaded efficiently by a human operator, or too large to be handled by hand.
Machine Tending
Material Handling / Part Transfer
Wauseon Machine has a large library of material handling / part transfer applications. Regardless of your part’s characteristics, our engineering team is able to quickly draw parallels between past and current projects to provide you with a proven solution.

Dispensing
WMM is one of the leaders in dispensing applications, Contact us today to learn how we can help you with your dispensing project.
Dispensing
Palletizing / Depalletizing
From depalletizing water jugs and engine blocks to palletizing sheet metal and plastic trays, we have experienced an array of product handling requirements. FANUC's palletizing robots possess payload capacities of 6kg to 1200kg and are equipped with iRVision to allow more flexibility in your process.
