Formatted abstract
Robotic Automation in Bed Foundation Spring Package is a project founded under the CEED program and is undertaken in Sealy of Australia. Sealy of Australia produces a wide range of bedding products includes a diversified line of mattress and foundation products. The major aim of this project is to reduce the production cost in the manufacturing of bed foundation springs by attempting to replace most of its labour work. This is done by utilising automated robotic assembly and manufacturing. It is anticipated that the project's successful implementation will reduce work-related injuries. This project is focused towards recommend existing industrial robotic system capable of automating a number of tasks involved in the manufacturing of bed foundation springs. However, if existing robotic system does not meet these requirements, a completely new robotic system will be designed to accomplish this. This robotic system is aimed to replace some of the labour tasks that involve the handling of the bed foundation springs manufactured from ten automated machines. This includes stacking two packs of five springs into one pack of ten and transferring the pack of ten springs into a crate. The robotic system will be controlled by a computerised system utilising sensors that will allow the robots to perform the required work.t
