Combine a robotic arm with a turning center or machining center and you have a manufacturing system that almost any machine tool builder can provide. 

Now add to it a simple-to-use, touch-screen cell controller and diagnostic system, and a space saving configuration that allows the robot access to all parts in the cell without cumbersome, maintenance-intensive drawers or trays. The result is DooCell, Doosan’s newest entry in automated cell design with convenience features unmatched by other commercially available systems.

The DooCell manufacturing cell will be demonstrated for the first time in North America at IMTS, where it will interface with both the Lynx 220A turning centre and DNM 500 machining centre.

DooCell features a robot cell control and diagnostic system.  Its simple design and operating features eliminate the day-to-day need for complex robot pendants, allowing the operator to assess performance, and diagnose problems, such as grippers not closing on a part, a bad switch in the system, the chuck failing to open, and other conditions that might arise.  And it’s simple to use.  Teach the robot three pick points and it’s ready to go.  Even the least skilled personnel can operate the DooCell at high levels of efficiency and productivity.

The status and diagnostic system has been designed for maximum convenience.  Its configuration enables personnel to monitor a cell from a single screen, and its touch-screen design eliminates keyboards.

DooCell’s layout allows the robot arm to reach stock and parts in even the most remote sections of the pallet, and it does so without the need for cumbersome, maintenance-intensive drawers and trays.  The result is a compact design that, when encased in a cage, measures 77 in. (2 m) x 77 in. ( 2 m) excluding the machine tool. Equipped with either a Fanuc M10 or M20, the robot can lift parts up to 7 lb (3.2 kg) or 12 lb. (5.4 kg)
