Screw gun guidance and monitoring screw-in depth

To guide screw guns at precise angles, the carrying arms for the horizontal projection and the rotation axis are each equipped with an AHM36 absolute encoder. This ensures that components are screwed together in the accurate position. During screw-in depth monitoring, the MPS analog positioning sensor checks whether the screws have been screwed in properly. The MPS monitors the screw-in depth of the screws within an accuracy of plus/minus 0.1 mm. The PLG6 switching automation light grid ensures that the worker takes the right screws for the assembly process out of the tote. A red job LED is integrated into the front of the PLG6 housing. This LED is highly visible for the worker and notifies him/her of any errors or of the proper "pick” position.
