Collaborative Robot precision handles Terminals
Written by: RNA Automation
RNA have been engaged to automate processes of handling and presenting terminals into injection moulding machine. A collaborative robot of UR3 was selected for the project, as it handles small parts with great precision and can be used without fence.
Terminals (25mm x 6mm x 0.8mm)
2 components to be presented every 46 seconds
The system consists of::
Sequence of Operation:
The bowl feeder feeds and orientates terminals, fitted with a non-accumulation station to allow only one component part at a time to transfer to the conveyor out-feed. The UR3 robotic handling unit equipped with a suitable gripper, collects one component part at a time from the conveyor out-feed and places it into a machined nest. The machine nest presents two component parts at a time for collection by the customer’s robotic handling unit into an injection moulding machine.
