Jamtech design and build custom automation machines for improving productivity.
In this instance a need arose for a small automated machine to cut a brittle material in batches of 10. Jamtech’s solution was the realisation of a two axis machine, one axis for the carriage and the other for the cutter depth.
The illustrated machine measure approximately 300mm(W) x 150mm(H) x 200mm(D).
Why use a custom machine?
The main driving force behind automation is to increase productivity with the eventual aim to increase productivity.
It is expected this particular machine will offer a 10 fold increase in productivity. Further gains are also made in reduced scrap and improved quality.
Jamtech use as many commercially-of-the-shelf (COTS) parts as possible in their design to reduce the number of custom parts. This reduces leads times and costs.
