RoboSkid™ is a complete packaged robotic work cell.

These cells come in many configurations and are customized to client needs. Typically only requiring electrical and compressed air utility connections, these cells consist of a base with fork truck pockets, integral safety fencing, robot, tooling and electrical controls cabinet. This layout insures the quickest installation and debugging time on your plant floor!

If it can fit within a semi-trailer, it can be shipped as a RoboSkid!

  • Designed to fit inside most semi-trailers requiring only minimal dismantle if any at all
  • Complete from FAT (Factory Acceptance Testing) at DRM
  • Minimal installation time on the factory floor
  • Easy move within the manufacturing facility

Project Profiles/Application Experience Examples:

  • Spray Cell
    An automotive seat supplier requested DRM to design and build a cell to automate their adhesion spraying process. Based on timing requirements, DRM offered a self-contained cell utilizing a turntable to move seats between a load/unload operator and a spraying robot.

    An operator would load the turntable with a new part then vision camera would inspect for proper loading and determine part type. The table would rotate 180 degrees where the new part is facing the robot and the last completed part is facing the operator. While the operator is unloading and re-loading the table, the robot is spraying adhesive based on the part type as detected by the camera. Once the robot and operator are complete and clear, the table will rotate readying for the next cycle.

  • Small Part Assembly
    An automotive hose supplier needed to automate for increased demand and carpal tunnel concerns. The plan was for several RoboSkid cells to be strategically placed within the facility so one managing operator could supply four or more work cells. Each cell performed different operations as to keep with existing product flow procedures.

    It was found additional work could be scheduled during off-shift times if the cells were properly pre-loaded before shifts end, allowing the cells to operate in a “lights out” condition.
