Robotics at DV Group

Robotics or cobotics project – from design to integration

Whether a new works project or a reorganisation of the plant, our “project” architecture involves a number of different phases, each of which is subject to a validation milestone:

 

  • Project launch and organisational phase
  • Functional specifications phase
  • Design and programming phase
  • Platform test phase
  • On-site integration phase
  • Commissioning phase

 

At the start of the project, we first define the organisation that is both necessary and sufficient to meet the requirements of the project. After this, a project manager is appointed to act as your preferred contact dealing with both technical and a commercial aspects. He/she shall ensure that the project is carried out in accordance with the technical, time, quality and budgetary objectives. He/she will be responsible for the progress of the project, managing any modifications if necessary and will remain at your disposal for any problems during the course of the project.

Maintenance: Troubleshooting robotics stations

DV GROUP specialises in robot maintenance and repair. In close co-operation with the manufacturers, we offer rapid and efficient diagnosis.

With a large stock of KUKA, ABB and FANUC spare parts as well as other brands, we reduce machine downtime to the absolute minimum. In fact, we return your means of production to operation and repair any defective parts (Teach, screen, electronic cards, power supply, regulation board, power converter, etc.).

 

 

Replacement parts delivered within 24/48 hours

Our highly efficient network of suppliers means that we are able to ensure next-day delivery of spare parts to your premises to replace any defective items.

DV GROUP’s versatile technicians, each specialised in specific areas, are able to carry out repairs on all the different parts of the robot.

 

Preventive maintenance of machine tools

We are also able to provide preventive maintenance on your robots periodically or on an ad hoc basis.

This guarantees maximum uptime for your means of production.

Case study :

FPT

Need / Context

The machining centre is equipped with an obsolete 840C digital control system. - High failure rate, tedious and costly troubleshooting. - No spare parts.

Solutions

- Implementation of a solution based on the 840DSL digital control with conservation of existing drives and motors (611A and 1FT5).

Results

- Sustainability of the machining centre. - Competence of maintenance staff for this machine. - Easy troubleshooting thanks to the specific documentation developed. - Parts available and in stock. - Economic gain in relation to the machine manufacturer. - Optimisation of machining times.

Vallourec

Need / Context

- Ageing components of the analogue controls of a hot rolling mill. - Need to be able to change the power block in less than one hour. - Replacement of the DC rectifiers of the cages.

Solutions

- Production of rackable power blocks. - Integration of these power blocks with a DC Simoreg CM controller with a Profibus DP communication network. - "Customized" assembly with scaling of direct and reverse power bridges depending on the actual application, and of the tables depending on the available space. - Use of standard components that are easily accessible on the power electronics market.

Results

- Obsolescence management. - Components available on the market. - Standard, economical products, which are easy to maintain.
