Caption: Early "canned" programming was suited to simple pick-and-place robot applications but became cumbersome and expensive when custom functions were required.
"A pick-and-place robot may only need up to five pounds [2.3 kg] of payload, including parts and end-of-arm tooling"--but tooling for insert installation or other operations may require much more capacity if they are to be options.
A third pick-and-place robot removes the cooked pouches from the trays, and places them in pre-determined positions on the conveyor belt which will transport them to the cartoning operation.
Designed for automation applications in which a sprue picker could normally do the job, but in which greater flexibility of part-release position is required, the new BE-950 pick-and-place robot from Conair satisfies all requirements, says the company.
If you are at the point where you have justified the purchase of a pneumatic pick-and-place robot based on a consistent cycle, part quality, and, in some cases, cycle reduction, then justifying a servo robot will not be difficult if it will eliminate downstream automation equipment and/or manual operations.
The TLM packaging system Schubert developed for the customer consists of four sub-machines, or modules, outfitted with three TLM-F4 four-axis pick-and-place robots with vision, two TLM-F2 two-axis robots, and Schubert's proprietary Transmodul single-axis, rail-based transport robots.
The LSP top-load robotic case packer can handle pouches or bags up to 10 lb at speeds to 100/min with dual pick heads using Fanuc's M-10iA/10MS six-axis pick-and-place robots. During operation, by way of vision, each robot picks one bag at a time from an infeed conveyor and places it directly into a case.
Sepro Robotique has recently introduced two of its newest models to the market, the S5-15, the smallest unit in the advanced S5 Line of Cartesian beam robots and the Success 22, the first in a new line of faster, stronger pick-and-place robots for mid-size injection-moulding machines.
After the wash coating, two pick-and-place robots pick one mold from the conveyor and place it on another conveyor, which carries the molds into a drying oven.
The bags initially pass through optical detection devices that verify the quality of the bags and supply the information to guide the pick-and-place robots. Robots equipped with special grippers swiftly pick-and-place either 6 or 12 packs onto the in-feed chain carriers for transportation to the horizontal form fill and seal machines.
Omni line designed for under-machine or low, pass-along installations; HR line recommended for use with pick-and-place robots. All standard models (many with casters) include V-groove belt tracking adjustment without tools and powered by single-phase, motor/gear-box drives.
