Introducing the Concept of Modular Automation

Modular automation is a rapidly-expanding concept in factory automation where a once immobile production line is divided into independent transportational modules that are quickly reconfigured to adapt to different needs.

The below videos detail the features of this flexible production style layout and how traditional assembly lines can benefit from integrating the concept in their existing manufacturing line.

Oriental Motor’s Modular Automation compatible products are compact and lightweight DC-powered motion solutions such as the AZ Series mini driver and the BLV Series R Type.

Modular Automation

Oriental Motor has many solutions that can be applied to the concept of modular automation.

  • Compact and Light Weight
  • Mobility in Production Layout
  • Reduction of needed Manpower
  • DC Battery Operated

Work Transportation Robots between Each Process

A more efficient production line and flexible configuration becomes possible by sizing production-line robots into existing static conveyor applications. In comparison with traditional assembly lines, a robot is able to complete tasks with a limited turning radius and in compact spaces.
