Developed solutions

At TechTribe, we offer a range of solutions that we have developed together with our customers over the years. Those can easily be adapted to Your special needs and application. 

Modular production cells with IDA system

At TechTribe, we are proud of our developed machine control, IDA – Intelligent Distributed Automation.

IDA enables flexible production using simple setups and rapid conversion. We achieve this by means of distributed control of the different parts of the equipment using local PLCs. Each PLC interacts and is synchronised via a central coordinator whose function, as the name indicates, is to coordinate and transfer the required information between different parts of the machine. Our developed solution – modular production cells – allows you to change and adjust each device when and how you want.

This results in shorter setup times, more cost effective production and streamlined communication throughout the supply chain – saving energy and resources, and increasing competitiveness.

Vision feeders

The industry are looking for solutions that offer maximum flexibility, where a single piece of equipment can handle multiple components. For this, vision is often a suitable solution. Flexibility and customer adaptation are our watchwords, so in order to meet our customers’ demand for customised solutions, we have developed a vision feeder.

Our vision feeder uses two of our developed step feeders, conveyors to distribute the parts, and two vision cameras to control the robot and work in each conveyor. 

  • Integrated vision
  • Fixture with quick-release coupling
  • Electrical cabinet
  • PLC
  • Robot grippers

Step feeders

It is essential that we offer our customers quality and cost effectiveness. That’s why we have developed our own step feeder, which handles and sorts parts to pick-up position.

Our step feeder comes in four different designs and can handle different sizes of parts and different cycle times. We offer two different step lengths – 120 or 200 mm – as well as two different step depths – 12 or 20 mm.

Low noice, safe and cost effective – our step feeder offers many benefits. Each feeder is adapted for its specific task and designed to the application. The feeder can be delivered as a separate unit or integrated with existing equipment.

Multi-track vision conveyors

The industry are looking for solutions that offer maximum flexibility, where a single piece of equipment can handle multiple components. Our multi-track vision conveyor handles parts of different sizes at two heights. Each conveyor has a camera that guides the robot in pick up position. You can set-up the conveyors to handle the same part, or have different parts on each conveyor. 

As with all our equipment, we adapt interfaces to suit our customers’ wishes.

  • Integrated vision
  • Electrical cabinet
  • PLC
  • Camera and lighting

Tray changers

To place parts directly into a tray and to run a production cell for longer time without requiring an operator, and using as little area as possible, we have developed a tray changer. 

Our tray changer is designed to suit two types of trays: Trays with handles or trays without handles.

  • Electrical cabinet
  • PLC

Robot grippers

We have extensive experience in designing robot grippers to handle various parts and components. 

We have a standardised way of working when it comes to robot grippers. As a general rule, we start with a quick-release coupling and use a solution where the plate is cut from a complete base plate. This helps us reduce setup times and makes the grippers more stable.
