increases quality ratio with 50% by
optimizing polishing processes.
Amphenol Pheonix was in need of a solution to optimize both their rough and fine polishing processes of stainless-steel parts as they were offered to produce the Microsoft Surface Duo hinge.
This gave them the following challenges:
To solve these challenges Nordbo Robotics re-used the basis of the advanced polishing software and added a new “Teach Method” called Point to Point (P2P), enabling Amphenol Pheonix to create robot paths by teaching waypoint with the teach pendant of the robot and generate a new program within minutes. This provided the needed flexibility and enabled them to use the same systems on other projects, given them a great advantage on competitiveness.
The robot precision and repeatability together with Nordbo Robotics polishing software and precise force control ensured consistent polishing quality and gave Amphenol the following results:
Fully automated polishing cell at Amphenol
Automatic robot polishing using P2P teach method
Amphenol was founded in 2001 and is one of the largest manufacturers of interconnect products in the world with several Forbes500 customers such as Google, Apple, and Microsoft.
