The ARAMIS (Automatic Roller Assembly Machine Intelligent System) is Luff’s newest addition to its manufacturing plant, offering increased speed and precision in the manufacturing of conveyor rollers. ARAMIS is designed to cut production time for roller assembly from approximately two minutes to under 30 seconds per roller, producing 120+ rollers per hour. With increased demand for Luff rollers, ARAMIS is a timely and welcome addition to the production line. The robotic assembler is not only fast, but versatile too. ARAMIS can manufacture rollers ranging from 4″ CEMA B to 6″ CEMA D, accommodating belts from 18″ to 60″ in size. Proprietary software was developed specifically for the machine, allowing for minimal interaction and errors in the manufacturing process. Developed in conjunction with NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology), ARAMIS offered Alberta students a unique opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in a hands-on approach, while bringing the robotic assembler to life. “We jumped on the opportunity to improve Luff’s manufacturing ability, while offering students and employees of tomorrow a chance to enhance their learning process,” said Robert Fasoli, Luff Plant Manager. “We plan on continued investment in these areas and future technologies.” Plans are already underway for additional robotic developments in Luff’s continued effort to provide state-of-the-art, cost effective solutions to it’s business model. Fasoli pointed out that the ARAMIS assembler didn’t eliminate any employee positions, but actually created two new ones within the company. “We had six roller operating lines, and ARAMIS became our seventh,” he explained. “Continued growth created a need for additional capacity and we couldn’t be happier with the result.
