The GP600 Gen 2 is a patent-pending 6-axis automated greasing system we've developed specifically for pumping and purging grease into industrial robots. The system utilizes industry standard Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC system, analog and digital I/O, and a 9" Panelview HMI. It's designed to safely administer grease, as well as purge worn grease to a 6-axis robot with programs developed for a wide range of popular robots. Users can also add their own programs. Many variables such as pump extend and retract times, as well as grease cavity volumes can be edited to suit. This system pumps from a 55 gallon drum, and utilizes open-air drains (into buckets) that are later cleaned out with an air vac. We leave the drains / vents unplugged and open to offer the least amount of pressure restriction at the gearbox exit point.
The system is designed to not allow more than 22.5 PSI of pressure enter the gearbox. If that pressure is reached, the pump is fully retracted and is paused until pressure equalizes. Pump travel speed is mechanically adjustable to ultimately tweak the pressures at the gearbox.
Many industrial robots are greased incorrectly. Maintenance personnel will a lot of times use a manual grease gun which over pressurizes the grease cavity resulting in blown seals and damaged motors. This causes tens of thousands of dollars in damage, and long robot downtime.
This system will grease an entire 6-axis robot like a Fanuc S-430i or R2000i in approx 30 to 35 minutes. With hookup and taredown, a robot could be greased in 40-45 minutes. This is versus 4 to 6 hours using traditional methods.
These greasing systems offer extremely fast ROI and enormous savings in labor, downtime, and parts costs.
For smaller shops, we offer 2-axis, 3-axis, and 4-axis pumping systems as well.
