Robot-assisted picking of individual parts in an assembly plant
To manufacture a torque transducer, components are transported on a pallet to a work station. The PLOC2D robot guidance system distinguishes between these parts by means of its 2D object localization capability and feeds them to the assembly facility in the correct sequence. There they are assembled into a complete torque transducer. The image processing unit of the system locates the exact position of the parts and guides the robot to the correct location. This eliminates the need for part-specific compartments on the pallet as the parts can be located in different positions on the pallet, which reduces the costs for material handling processes.
Working together as equals
Thanks to sensors from SICK, robots perceive more precisely. For all challenges in the field of robotics: Robot Vision, Safe Robotics, End-of-Arm Tooling, and Position Feedback.
