Life Elettronica decided to automate the potting process by replacing with a robot a machine that needed the constant presence of an operator. The application also had to be adapted to a very small space and guarantee high quality and repeatability standards. Life Elettronica is a company in Modena specialising in the production of electronic boards for third parties. It has invested heavily in industrial automation and also has a ur3 for board potting operations. The application has delivered unprecedented productivity and freed up resources to work on operations with greater added value.
Life Elettronica is one of Italy's leading electronic board toll manufacturers. All processes are carried out at its Modena plant, from takeover of the project to delivery of the finished product. To increase the productivity and efficiency of its processes and ensure excellent and repeatable board quality, Life Elettronica has opted for robotised automation with a Universal Robots UR3 for potting operations.
The business transformation
The cobot – installed by Maxver srl that provided supply, installation and training - works in a small work area and can plot 20 electronic boards at the same time. The overall work cycle, which lasts about 15 minutes, has no comparison with traditional potting methods, which require the use of other equipment and, above all, the constant presence of an operator to supervise the process.
