About Tesseract Modular Automation

Our modular system is not an "off the shelve" solution. When you purchase a Tesseract assembly line from us, our engineers work with you to customise it to your product and assembly needs. The modularity allow us to give you the best of both worlds:

  • Customisation options as a custom assembly line, excluding the high CAPEX, and
  • Low turn around time as an off the shelf cobot solution.

All testing and configuration is done at our factory when when we create your modules. Our goal is, when you receive your modular assembly line, is ready to go in as little time as possible.

Tesseract can automate up to 80% of the most repetitive tasks in assembly, this includes: glueing, soldering, screwdriving, liquid dispensing of different levels of viscocity and temperature, pick and place, quality inspection with camera vision and laser etching.
The modular design is also the perfect platform for developing custom processes at a fraction of the cost and time.

Each Tesseract module comes in two standard sizes: 1.00mts and 1.6mts. The small footprint of the modules allow for easy deployment in almost all manufacturing spaces, including clean room environments.

Our engineers will work closely with you to understand your product in depth, and then suggest the most efficient, future-proof modular assembly line, that requires the least amount of modules.

Depending on your automation needs an assembly line could range from a single module containing multiple, simple processes, to a full assembly line with a dozen of seamlessly connected automation modules.

A Tesseract module, has all the components required for a robot to perform their tasks without human intervention. Every Tesseract module includes:

  1. A conveyor belt system,
  2. A lift system and
  3. Customised working station.

The automated integration of these 3 elements is what provides seamless integration of multiple modules, giving you flexibility and scalability.

Yes, the modules are multipurpose. We built them with this in mind, as we are confident that modularity and flexibility are the future of sustainable manufacturing as they operate with lower carbon footprint.

Once we have your specific design requirement then our engineers will look at the best way to optimise each modular cell. For example if we did Flex PCB assembly we can analyse if we use 2 x 2-axis robot, or use a 5 axis robot.

Our modular system can handle changes from one product to another. When designing your Tesseract modular assembly line, our engineers will do it, having in mind your different products and SKUs.
Once in your factory, change over could be done as easily as swaping the feeder system from one product to the other.
We also use vision systems that could implement machine learning to identify and change application based on the product being fed into the module

The robots and parts of our modular system where built to be as flexible and cost effective as possible, at the same time, they are easy to repair with provided spare parts.

We also have the capacity to build any fit-for-purpose robot, at a competitive cost, to cover the most complex assembly jobs.

If your company has any preference for any particular brand of cobots, our engineers can work with you to integrate them into the Tesseract modules.

Yes, all our modules are integrated with our proprietary software. Here you will be able to see all productivity metrics, configurations and system alerts.

Our software was built using C+, C-sharp and Python for vision systems.

Data is Captured on the modules internal hard drives and can produce live read out onto external monitor, laptop etc. Data as standard is stored local to machine, but system can be modified upon request to allow cloud or ethernet system. Data that is captured as standard:

  • Machine start/stop time
  • No of units produced between start and stop of machine
  • No of good parts
  • No of rejects
  • Number of down times – UPDT & PDT
  • Cycle time of the machine
  • UPH
  • 1 year warranty
  • Parts to be monitored / serviced / replaced on annual basis
    • Part Carriers
    • Custom design parts/components
    • Upon detail design - low life components will be specified and listed in the service/maintenance schedule
    • Consumables such as; O-rings, Gaskets, Lubricants, Valves etc.
    • Spare Parts list will be provided upon detail design
      • Lead Times, Cost, supplier Names will be listed.
  • Standard Service for Consumable replacement estimated 1 Day downtime on annual basis
  • Replacement / Repairs to critical components (Robots, Leak tester etc) down time dependant on LT for component supply.
  • ITUK Suggest for customer to have stock of critical/spare parts to ensure DT is minimal if there are any unforseen issues.
