Atlas Acquires New Compaction Press and Collaborative Robot
Embedded in the Atlas culture is a commitment to provide innovative solutions to meet our customers’ diverse needs. To ensure that we can offer high-quality, competitive components, Atlas Pressed Metals continuously reinvests in technology, equipment, people, and development.
Our most recent investment includes a 1500 kilonewton multi-level CNC compaction press coupled with a collaborative robot. With the ability to log data trends and apply this information to parameters on each level of the press, our engineers are able to hold tight tolerances on high-precision parts. Utilizing a collaborative robot, we are able to pick, weigh, and palletize parts from the press. Not only does the collaborative robot have enhanced repeatability, but it’s also simple to use. Our technicians don’t have to wait on a programmer they simply drag the robot to the desired point and teach. This reduces downtime and modernizes and streamlines how green parts (non-sintered) are handled.
Atlas is proud to be one of the first manufacturers in Pennsylvania to utilize this collaborative robot series to automate green part handling. This state-of-the-art technology increases our production capabilities by improving repeatability; enhancing part quality; providing flexibility for fulfilling a diverse range of component needs for our customer base; and optimizing rapid responses for short lead times.
Atlas Pressed Metals, located in DuBois, PA is a leading manufacturer of powdered metal components.
