Robot guidance for installation of windshields

The robot takes the windshield from the turntable. Four W12 small photoelectric sensors ensure that the gripper is positioned precisely and that the windshield is picked up without tension. The robot then travels to the approximate position over the windshield cutout in the body. It moves its gripper over the installation point until the OD short range distance sensors (displacement) register the exact distance. The windshield is then inserted precisely.
