Project Main Details

2009_02_13 Oil Coupling Video_English 
This will be voice over for a video presentation that demonstrates the capability of an automated manufacturing cell for the oil industry. The equipment is very expensive and highly specialized.

The audience would likely be decision makers from large manufacturing companies (i.e. senior engineers, purchasing agents, CEO's, CFO's, etc.). The average audience will be middle-aged men, and that is why we are requesting voice talent of that same age & gender.

The voice should be confident, straight-forward, believable, and clear. Think of narration for a TV show such as "American Castles". The subject is boring, so a little change in tone, etc. can be helpful as long as it isn't exaggerated to the point of being distracting.

Script Details


Okuma: oh-koo-mah (rhymes with puma)
LOC650: L-O-C six fifty
THINC: think 
Automated oil industry machining is the primary goal of the ***********************.

The cell addresses one of the most troubling, time-consuming and even dangerous aspects of coupling manufacturing – the need for human intervention. This video shows how a complete coupling piece can be machined without a human touching a work piece.

In this case, a robot automatically loads and unloads the work piece throughout the process.

A piece of raw stock has been placed in the 4-axis LOC650 horizontal machining center. Blanking is completed in this machine and entails facing and boring.

After facing and turning, the tool automatically indexes so the boring operation can begin.

The robot then automatically unloads the piece, places it on the stand, regrips, turns and reloads so the opposite end can be machined. At this point, the only human intervention has been to turn the machine on. A robot averages 98% uptime, thus minimizing the time required to load and unload the machine and maximizing the machine output. Additionally, robots are consistent, can lift extremely heavy work pieces and they don’t fatigue or take breaks.

The view you see here is from the inside of the machine. A view the operator doesn’t get. However, the operator can view a graphical representation of the cutting process on the monitor of the THINC Control. The superimposed image is what the operator sees on the control screen. The 2 cylinders represent the tool holders and the dark green represents the edge being cut.

At this point, the horizontal machining is complete and the robot will remove the piece from the LOC650 and place it on a conveyor to move to the next operation.

In this cell, the robot is mounted on an overhead rail and moves between machines.
