Differentiation of components during the gripping process

Three different variant widths of component A are processed in a pneumatic assembly system. In each one, component A is picked up using a gripper and placed on a workpiece carrier on the conveyor belt. The MPS-G position sensor measures the exact width of gripped component A and forwards the measured value to the control via IO-Link using the process data. This is how the additional process steps can be adjusted to the respective component variant.
