DSM Purchases UFactory Robotic Arm | Unboxing & Setup Video

 In DSM Blog

Dynamic Source Manufacturing is continuing to add automated systems and robotics to its facilities. Our new UFactory Robot Arm from Universal Robots will be utilized towards processing validation for multiple areas of potential improvement. Flexible and perfect for pick-and-place systems, it makes tasks much more efficient by achieving shorter cycle times.

As we continually work towards achieving Industry 4.0 and digital innovation in advanced manufacturing, our goal is not to replace jobs, but to support our production staff and develop sustainable roles. Adding this arm to our production cycle is only the beginning.

Our UFactory Robot Arm will support DSM’s workflow and production cycle starting with the below projects:

  • Automated PCBA test fixture loading and unloading, and sorting into passed / failed units
  • Through-hole component insert for pre-wave soldering / pre-selective soldering

Check out our video below of the unboxing process and initial setup, thanks to our Automation Technologist, Zach Wiebe.
