Forte designed & built a pair of custom Door Handling Systems for manipulating entry doors through a custom ink jet printing process.
Doors are brought into each cell vis an overhead power & free conveyor system and removed with a 125kg payload robot with custom EOAT.
Doors are pre-positioned by the robot just above the printing bed, a Forte designed linear slide with LED lighting & camera is positioned over the millwork features and used to fine position the doors on the bed for printing.
A Forte custom designed door flip mechanism along with the robot allows both sides of the door to be printed.
Finished printed doors are returned to the conveyor line with the robot.
Cell is designed to handle door sizes from 18” to 36” in width and 78” to 96” on length weighing up to 165 lbs.
