Rampf: Cutting lead times by more than 50 %

The new, speed-dependent FlexSpeed dispensing technology from Rampf Production Systems is said to cut lead times in series production by more than 50 %. The dispensing robots take corners with high precision and cover straights fast, making it possible to cut lead times for sealing, foaming, and bonding processes in series production by more than half. The technology is based on forced volumetric dispensing and the direct linking of dispensing performance and axis feed rate, making the dispensing system extremely flexible and responsive.

Whereas dispensing robots previously applied systems at constant speeds, the new FlexSpeed technology now enables them to reach up to 40 m/min. in a straight line, while braking in a controlled way just before corners and curves down to 20 m/min., ensuring consistent seal cross-sections and minimal corner radii.

The key benefit for sealing, foaming, and bonding systems is optimum machine utilisation while still preserving the mechanical parts. Only running at full speed for short periods means hardly any wear, so speed-dependent dispensing preserves the mechanical parts and machine utilization can be boosted considerably.

“The aim of series production is to manufacture the maximum number of units with maximum machine utilization, while maintaining the highest level of quality. For our customers in the automotive, electrical/electronics, household appliances, filter, and medical technology industries, these kinds of fast process chains are a must in production so as to compete in the global arena. With FlexSpeed, we are making a vital contribution to this,” says Alexander Huttenlocher, Director of Sales and Marketing at Rampf Production Systems.
