Product examples Loading and Unloading, Stacking


BIN PICKING MODEL L

WORKPIECES: Wide range of workpiece geometries, workpiece weight up to 100 kg, continuous placement, random part orientations possible.
CONTAINER SIZE: Max. 1,200 x 1,200 x 800 mm (L x W x H).
GRIPPING TECHNOLOGY: Parallel, centric, suction or magnetic gripper.
RECOGNITION: 3D vision systems aligned with customer and project requirements. High resolution with fast and efficient image processing.
ADDITIONAL: Placement of parts on conveyor or precise, position-oriented stacking on pallets or blisters. Automated handling of layer dividers possible. Collision-free picking, even with complex component geometries or difficult workpiece orientations and container situations.
ADVANTAGES: Compact design – cell size 3,800 x 4,300 mm. Also suitable for large or heavy parts. Particularly suitable for small workpieces. Short cycle times due to container being scanned at same time gripped parts are set down. Precise gripping with exceptionally high degree of emptying. Low-noise parts singulation. Two loading bays enable uninterrupted container change.

BIN PICKING MODEL M

WORKPIECES: Wide range of workpiece geometries, workpiece weight up to 10 kg, continuous part placement, random part orientations possible.
CONTAINER SIZE: 800 x 600 x 600 mm (L x W x H).
GRIPPING TECHNOLOGY: Parallel, suction or magnetic gripper.
RECOGNITION: 3D vision systems tailored to project, product and customer requirements – high resolution with powerful image processing.
ADDITIONAL: Placement of parts on a conveyor. Automated handling of layer dividers possible. Collision-free picking, even with complicated workpiece positions and container situations.
ADVANTAGES: Extremely compact design – cell size 2,000 x 2,000 mm. Exceptionally short cycle times due to parallel image processing during picking step. Parts are precisely gripped, containers are almost completely emptied. Low-noise solution.

LOADING AND UNLOADING PASSENGER CAR LASER WELDING MACHINE

WORKPIECES: Passenger car B-pillar, hot formed.
SPECIFICATION: Load and unload laser welding system with fully-automated part turning station.
CONTAINER: Latch boxes for raw and finished parts, size 1,200 x 2,400 mm, loaded by stacker, exact locating with bayonet pins.
GRIPPING TECHNOLOGY: Parallel gripper with flexible suspension to compensate for inaccuracies in workpiece positioning. Automatic gripper change coupling.
PARTS HANDLING: Robot with 7th axis, length 8,000 mm, walkable linear motion track, automatic tool change.
RECOGNITION: Photoelectric sensor for container presence check.

LOADING AND UNLOADING GRINDING MACHINE

WORKPIECES: Different types of hollow rings, max. weight 1 kg.
SPECIFICATION: Unload rings from load carrier, check orientation, demagnetize, palletize rings on layer dividers, load pallet cage.
GRIPPING TECHNOLOGY: Two pneumatic grippers of different sizes, vacuum grippers for spacers.
PARTS HANDLING: 6-axis robot.
RECOGNITION: Sensor triangulation, parts recognition via 3D vision system.
ADDITIONAL: Multitasking extension set, orientation check, laser marking with DMC code.
ADVANTAGES: Supply and discharge of all parts, high degree of automation, constant processes.

FEEDING GEAR SHAFTS

WORKPIECES: Drive shaft, diameter approx. 60 mm, length approx. 550 mm, weight approx. 2.5 kg
SPECIFICATION: Pick up raw parts from hardening grate, set down in transfer station, place parts in workholding fixture, pick up finished parts and place them in loading rack, eject rack, position and present for next processing step
CONTAINER: Basket weight empty approx. 5 kg, 600 mm x 400 mm x 65 mm, hardening rack empty approx. 124 kg, 1,000 mm x 600 mm x 335 mm, 6 shafts per basket, 16 shafts per hardening rack
GRIPPING TECHNOLOGY: Centric gripper, floating design for adaptation to raw part, parallel gripper for simultaneous handling of raw and finished parts, 6-axis robot
RECOGNITION: Workpiece orientation via vision system, workpiece identification via RFID
ADDITIONAL: Two separate corner stations for ejecting baskets in each cell
ADVANTAGES: All shaft types can be processed in each cell, synergy effects thanks to modular design, simple lot change

STORAGE MODULES

DESCRIPTION: Use of intermediate storage system as buffer, loading and unloading of raw and finished parts, variable number of buffer stations, baskets and plastic pallets can be used as workpiece carriers, simple and cost-effective loading with workpiece carriers stacked on dollies, high system autonomy.

Application examples


iNDAT parts handling solutions include bin picking, loading & unloading, charging and stacking. The parts can be transferred to other processing stations, conveyors and containers. All containers can be loaded and unloaded, as well as all workpiece geometries and materials handled.

Robot cell for loading and unloading CNC machining centers with heavy parts weighing up to 100 kg.

INDAT has designed a robot cell for automating the loading and unloading process. With this handling cell, CNC machining centers can be loaded and unloaded with raw parts (e.g. rotors) that are difficult to grip and can weigh anything up to 100 kg or more. As far as the range of parts is concerned, the robot cell is designed for high flexibility. It is also designed for maximum process reliability so that it can function autonomously for extended periods of time (e.g. an entire night shift)
