Safe human-robot collaboration in the production of electric motors

When assembling electric motors, human-robot collaboration is used to boost productivity. A robot takes the electric motors from the conveyor belt and gives them to the worker for further processing. This person places a wiring harness in the designated place in the electric motor. The robot then places the workpiece back on the conveyor belt. In this way, the robot functions as a flexible production assistant that can help the worker with unergonomic, manual tasks. The safety solution at the workstation is implemented by means of a microScan3 safety laser scanner and the Flexi Soft safety controller. A particular highlight is the innovative safeHDDM™ scan technology which is extremely resistant to ambient light and dust.
