CPAutomation has developed a semi-automatic welding machine for rotating parts which can apply weld beads of less than 300 microns. Its application flexibility means it can be used to weld parts of widely varying shapes and sizes. Tool changes are easy and take just a few seconds. To guarantee maximum productivity, the operator loads the machine in concurrent operation time. Mechanical and electronic poka-yoke systems have been implemented to ensure optimal quality and machine availability. Traceability is ensured by an ergonomic bar code reader built into the machine. For more information, please contact CPAutomation.

Ein ausgeklügeltes optisches Messsystem ist das Herzstück einer Ani age zur thermischen Beschichtung von Zylinder­laufflachen in der Serienfertigung. Das lnline-Prüfsystem erfasst Oberflachenfehler, Schichtdicke, Porositat, Rauheit sowie Oxidgehalt der Schicht. Anhand der Messwerte lassen sich die Beschichtungsparameter im laufenden Prozess automatisch opti mieren.

"The Swiss medical industry develops and produces complex medical devices in Switzerland. In order to stay competitive (especially in a high labor cost country like Switzerland), production needs to be continuously optimized. Thanks to cutting edge technologies and high level of innovation, the Swiss machine builder industry can contribute to their success in Switzerland. Medtronic and CPAutomation SA collaborate successfully since many years to optimize the production of high value added complex medical devices in Switzerland. Thanks to this collaboration, Medtronic produces thousands of high quality and cost effective medical devices in their Tolochenaz plant.
CPAutomation SA supplies turnkey systems based on standard configurations and platforms. Its customers have the benefit of a large range of competencies in the fields of micro assembly, micromanipulation, laser machining and intelligent aesthetic inspection."
