MIROLIN BATH TUB TRIM SYSTEM

Mirolin Tub

The Mirolin Bath Tub System was developed to eliminated the cumbersome task of trimming and drilling holes into bath tubs manually. The system uses a Motoman robot with a tool changer which allows the robot to access a round diamond-tip saw to trim the outside of the bath tub as well as a drill to create drain and jacuzzi holes in the tub. The system is capable of process over 1000 types of bath tubs and jacuzzi’s.

The automation also uses a turntable where 2 operators load a tub to one side while the robot processes another tub on the other. A vision system is also used for quality control of the finished product as well as determining the correct location of the drilled drain holes. A bar code reading system identifies the model of the tub in order to change the cutting and drilling programs.
