Discover Adhesives for Industrial Robots

Automated robotic systems are critical components of modern production lines, helping brand owners and manufacturers maximize quality, production and profits. They also facilitate flexibility and scalability while relieving employees of monotonous or unhealthy tasks. But careful assembly and regular maintenance of robotic equipment are essential to ensure reliability, minimise downtime and ensure safe operation. Bostik’s Born2Bond range of engineering adhesives encompasses multiple solutions for assembly, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) applications, making them ideal for the construction, installation and ongoing maintenance of robotic systems.

The Challenge 

A leading robotics provider provides design, assembly and maintenance of robotic systems, “grippers” and programming solutions to manufacturers in a wide range of industry sectors, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical and automotive, covering a multitude of applications. Its offer ranges from conception and construction to integration and assembly, with more than 100 robot models available from leading global partners. With many moving parts and complex components, these robots are often used in highly demanding end-use environments involving vibration, heat, and humidity, where failure is not an option. Two recurring challenges included the reliable assembly of industrial robots within the automotive and assembly segments, involving heavy, fast-moving arms with pneumatic attachments, and fixing stainless and zinc-plated bolts inside fast-moving conveyor belts. and subject to strong vibrations. Having tested various mechanical fastening solutions, including wedge lock washers, the client wanted to establish a more reliable, convenient and cost-effective solution. 

The Solution

After a visit from a member of the Bostik technical team where multiple solutions from the Born2Bond range of anaerobic adhesives were tested, the client found that the pipe and thread sealing adhesives and service products were the ideal solutions for these applications. Filling and sealing all voids, these single-component adhesives provide 100% surface-to-surface contact, achieving a cohesive, durable connection that won’t fail even when subjected to vibration, extreme temperatures or chemicals. Suitable for new installations as well as post-assembly preventative maintenance, the solutions eliminate the cost and inconvenience of keeping an extensive inventory of mechanical fasteners, such as spring washers, and sealing alternatives, such as PTFE tapes.
