Automation of repetitive applications
In pick-and-place applications, parts are picked up and placed back in a specific position and orientation. For example, for the purpose of sorting products for a downstream process so that subsequent machines can handle the parts better.
Companies in the food, automotive or pharmaceutical industries and many other sectors frequently use pick & place robots for the assembly or packaging of their products. This saves them production time and reduces the error rate to practically zero.
Control and transfer in the cleanroom
Products are checked during transfer between conveyors and sorted into transport packages. RCP2CR and RCP6CR actuators are used for these cleanroom applications.
Loading and unloading machines
A cartesian robot with a long stroke path is used for loading and unloading machine tools.
Transfer and sloping parking
A Cartesian robot is used to transport small glass vials and place them at an angle.
Stacking beer crates
A cartesian robot is used to stack 22 kg beer crates.
Loading & unloading washing machines
Loading and unloading of a pallet washer with an electric multi-slider type actuator.
Mounting of assembly machine
Workpieces are placed on a rotary table with cartesian robots, completed, assembled, pressed and placed on a conveyor belt again.
Pick and assembly line
Chips and other small parts are placed and assembled on a rotary table. Two small fast IXA SCARA robots are used for this.
Load / unload machine tool
Cartesian 4-axis robot with a long fast IFA toothed belt actuator and two Z-axes is used to load a machine tool.
Load / unload grinding machine
IP protected EleCylinder slider and rod type actuators for dusty production environments are used to load and unload the ceramic grinding machine.
Stacking blue rays
The Blue Rays are taken from the conveyor belt with a vacuum gripper and placed in the correct stack in a set number.
Single removal of paper pages
With a vacuum gripper, individual sheets of paper are taken from the stack and placed individually for further processing.
Pick & Place in cleanrooms
Medical bottles are visually inspected and then placed on a conveyor belt by an IXA SCARA robot in cleanroom design (ISO 3).
Loading & unloading with SCARA robot
The heavy-duty SCARA robot with a long stroke grips two boxes at a time and loads them alternately onto two conveyor belts.
The filling of the biscuits is covered with an EleCylinder and special gripper.
Rotation and change of direction
A circuit board is tested with various EleCylinders and then positioned in the opposite direction for further processing.
Cleaning glass bottles
Glass bottles are placed in a washing machine with different EleCylinders and taken out again when the cleaning process is finished.
PET bottle packaging
PET bottles are taken in stacks from the conveyor belt and placed in the transport packaging.
Placement & transfer
EleCylinder actuators are used for transfer, assembly and placement of workpieces.
