Robotic stations

Operation of an automated storage rack

Intralogistics is seeing an increasing popularity of robots. However, the high variability of products, release times, and the extremely considerable impact of the human factor mean that these are far from being simple implementations. Automation system manufacturers are therefore offering increasingly powerful features to make process automation in this industry more accessible and cost-effective. In this workstation, we reproduce an example of the use of a robot-operated rotomat.

Operation of a Robodrill milling centre

Many metal component manufacturers are faced today with high production variability, machine loads and, above all, little space in their production facilities. During the competition, we will present an example of a solution consisting in a simple robotic workstation capable of self-calibrating with the machine position and starting work without any additional activities involved. In practice, it offers the possibility of rotating the workstation between machines depending on current production needs.

Bending brake operation

The operation of various types of presses is a common issue in the industry. In this workstation, we present solutions that aim to facilitate the implementation and generation of bending programmes for a robot working at a bending brake. The use of a robot in such a process, first and foremost, stabilises the production process, avoiding downtime due to interruptions or irregular work.

Material bonding with the MAG method

Being a ubiquitous process, welding needs no special introduction. Nonetheless, developments in the industry never cease to progress and are developing in a direction where it is easier for users to use and program their machines. As a result, focused competencies are no longer needed as far as operating the robot itself is concerned – process specialists can perform welding with FANUC’s collaborative robots in an increasingly accessible way.

Grinding of welds

Achieving the right product quality is crucial for sales in many companies. It can be achieved today in a variety of ways – from manual machining to advanced robotic systems that generate the machining trajectory using AI.  At the workstation, we present an intermediate solution that demonstrates the idea of trajectory design based on the Roboguide software.

Handling Belgian chocolate products

Handling, sorting, and packaging in the food industry are very monotonous processes, which is ideal for accurate robots that excel at repetitive tasks. What if the robotisation of such processes can bring additional benefits? After all, nothing stands in the way of achieving highly accurate production statistics from the system, equipping it with quality control (weighing, visual inspection, etc.) or making a selection of defective products. The workstation shows an example process consisting in sorting and boxing chocolate products with the use of extremely fast delta and SCARA robots.

Precision milling and drilling

A process invariably associated with CNC machines. Fortunately, FANUC robots are developed precisely on the basis of CNC technology. If it were to be combined with the high rigidity of the arm, additional feedback from the position of the joints, and state-of-the-art CAM software, for many processes we would obtain quality levels similar to those of CNC machines but with incomparably greater flexibility and versatility. During the competition, Solid Expert, in cooperation with FANUC, will present a robotic alternative to classic CNC milling machines.

A mobile robot with an anthropomorphic robot

Transport is an extremely important part of manufacturing. Manufacturers are racing to design increasingly innovative and versatile methods of transporting products. So why not transport an entire robotic workstation? This solution makes it possible to optimise the cost of new implementation projects by reducing the number of new robots and rotating those already available between workstations. Unlike manual transport solutions, AMR will drive on its own to the desired location and provide power to other pieces of equipment mounted directly on it.

A universal palletising station

The dynamics of changes in packaging sizes and palletisation patterns or mixes are often very difficult to predict. If it is combined with very limited space, the classic approach to robotic palletisation often makes the use of a robot impossible. Having said that, thanks to collaborative robots and modern features, manufacturers are gaining completely new opportunities. We will present an example of the use of the largest collaborative robot in the CRX series in combination with built-in palletising and depalletising features in an application that is almost ready to be employed in the food industry or cosmetics production.

A simulation of robotised painting

It is fairly hard to show the painting process at public events and conferences. The absence of such devices at mass events does not mean that such applications are not available. On the contrary, robotised painting is widely available in the automotive industry, the furniture industry, and in the production of joinery. However, it is worth being aware of solutions dedicated to this process, ranging from specialised robots used in environments posing explosion hazards to offline software capable of checking layer thickness. We present a painting simulation. Instead of paint, we use UV light so that you don’t have to worry about all the infrastructure and security of the workstation

A welding process with a vision-based joint tracking system

The process of robotised welding has until now been associated mainly with the high-volume production of precisely replicated pieces. Current solutions allow very flexible adaptation of machinery to the requirements of the pieces being welded, even in the case of small series and problems with positioning accuracy or edge preparation. The use of a vision-based system for real-time detection and tracking of the welded joint during welding effectively addresses such problems. Combined with the latest welding process methodology and fume extraction, it provides a very compact and flexible solution ready for a variety of challenging applications.

Advanced axis synchronisation – cams

Synchronisation of two or more axes is required In many applications. In the more advanced ones, complex movement functions that are difficult to describe in simple terms often need to be applied. One solution to tackle this challenge is to use a so-called software cam, which is a table of points describing the relationship between two axes, where the course between the points is described by mathematical functions. The task will consist in creating a cam and ensuring the travel of the axes in a master-slave relationship.

Robot and gripper coordination in Beckhoff PLC

The ubiquity of palletising applications in industry means a wide variety of products, which significantly affects the process. Robotic systems equipped with industrial robots and advanced grippers are used to meet the challenges. The combination of these systems provides a flexible solution that allows them to be tailored to a specific application, in many cases requiring the handling of products with different dimensions or properties, and therefore also quick and easy parameterisation of the operating algorithm.

Most often, as far as such processes are concerned, the semi-finished products to be handled are stored in containers or on pallets. Before a part is picked by the robot, it must be located precisely. This is where the 3D vision system SICK PLB comes to the rescue, consisting of a 5Mpx stereoscopic camera and the PLB Studio Software.

Using a 3D scanner for automatic quality control of welded products

It is increasingly required that the result of a quality control process measurement is already known on the production line to save time and costs connected with possible process improvements. Nevertheless, it is worth exploring solutions that allow product quality control to be implemented directly on the production line. The task will consist in programming the quality control process of a measurement system capable of working directly on the production line. This will use an ATV frame manufactured by Polaris and a Creaform laser measurement system equipped with custom software.

Limitation of force and pressure in robot-human contact

People and robots are supposed to work in the same space and at the same time, which means that human-robot contact is likely to occur. For this reason, a cobot – i.e. a special collaborative robot with a streamlined shape and a force and torque monitoring capability – is used. Importantly, the ISO 15066 force and pressure values must not be exceeded during possible human contact. To verify it, appropriate measurements need to be ensured. These will be taken using special equipment, available at the stand, and procedures supervised by SICK experts.
