Glue dryer special purpose machine
Designing a special purpose machine for the automotive industry requires the highest level of technological methods and machine build; the machine must fit into the complete production line in order to ensure a computed and controlled production.
As part of the assembly of an electric unit in a passenger car our team was assigned to heated-chamber cure a metal part glued into a heat cure plastic housing, and then to recool the workpiece to touchable temperature.
The machine had to receive the pieces from a neighbouring special purpose machine, then pieces had to be kept heated at 80 C° temperature, and then cooled back in an air-conditioned space and finally collected in a container. Pieces were moved between the hot and cool space by a robotic arm, which alternately fed the pieces to be cooled to two conveyor lines.
We had to properly insulate hot parts in order to protect people working next to the machine, and also to separate cooled and heated chambers by air-lock to save energy.
To engineer a high capacity special purpose machine fitting into the production line, into a limited size and specified shape place.

We have been using the pneumatically controlled foaming jig designed by CAD-CAM 3000 Ltd. for more than one and a half years for the manufacture of our 70 l and 90 l absorption chillers.
Since then, we have not had any scraps, shutdowns or accidents. What else can I say? This tells everything.Kiss Zoltán Head of Technology - DOMETIC Zrt.
We coopreate with CAD-CAM 3000 since 2014. The technical know-how, skills and willpower of the team has enabled them to get acquainted with this concrete field of the industry as fast as possible. Their software knowledge is excellent and it is extremely easy to plan the projects with their help. The communication between our participating colleagues and the team of CAD-CAM 3000 is as efficient as possible at all times. Due to the weekly meetings, project planning is a walk in the park.Kubicsek Károly Project leader - Knaus Tabbert Kft.
We cooperated in various projects with the team. Although the construction industry is not the main area of CAD-CAM 3000, they were brilliant at understanding our difficulties and challenges, and they had excellent ideas during their contribution.Dr. Toldy Gábor Chief Operating and Production Officer - Baumetall Design Kft.
Together with CAD-CAM 3000, we worked on the prototype of such a device which was a modified version of an already existing product. As the first step, we shared our broad ideas with CAD-CAM 3000, with regard to the desired functionalities and performance. As the second step, we specified those components which required modification. CAD-CAM 3000 arranged for the modifications of the already existing drawings on the basis of the instructions and they also optimized the new shapes for the best aesthetic outcome. They perfectionized this re-design with regard to the fabrication of the new components, displaying considerable knowledge.Corrado Cecchini Thermal Insulation Manager - Global Technology Food Preservation, Electrolux
It was easy to get in touch with them, in order to discuss and check up on their suggestions, and we also managed to complete the task in time. They travelled personally to Italy, in order to discuss the most challenging items and to assemble the prototype. We were satisfied with their assistance and we will count on them in our future projects, too.
After daring to dream big about a glass barrel-spiral composition floating around a one-meter big steel sphere, curved in every millimetre – I found the CAD CAM 3000 team.
They immediately undertook the adventure with me…
Implementing a form based on refined geometry in material – without attractive and sensitive static design collaboration – would have remained a mere illusion for me.
However, along the conscientious engineering work of Róbert and Árpád, I felt safe throughout.
They had a sharp sense of my ideas, which stretched the physical possibilities in countless cases, and always kept the project with clever, sober arguments — keeping in mind the importance of the sight — in the sure bed of feasibility.
In collaboration with CAD CAM 3000, my glass-metal space sculpture called “COHESION” came to life in Örkény, which was presented on the anniversary of National Unity and the Treaty of Trianon.
In a unique collaboration of artistic concept and thoughtful, thorough, precise, engineering work…
