Strategic Automation's new Robo-Logo™ golf ball orienting machine introduces a revolutionary new method of producing
custom logo golf balls, at 5 times the rate of a manual operator. The challenge in printing custom logos on golf
balls is largely a matter of precision.
Logos need to be precisely positioned in relation to
other graphics or in a particular orientation on the ball.
Traditionally, the industry relies on manual labor to accomplish
this task. Not surprisingly, the process is slow and arduous.
Operators are prone to fatigue and as a result, high reject
rates. They also frequently suffer from repetitive motion
injuries. The cost in labor and benefits to achieve a seemingly
simple task have been surprisingly high.
While many have tried, only one company offers an engineered
solution that precisely positions a ball up to
once every second. That is three times
the throughput of manual operators. Each ball is placed
with an accuracy of thirty-one thousandths of an inch (0.031"). In a finely
tuned machine, reject rates are typically 1 in a 1000.
