advintec 6D laser measurement

Cost savings with BizLink unracking solutions

The challenge:

In modern production plants it is often necessary to extract parts (body side panels, roofs, hoods and similar parts) that are then delivered in bins for further processing in a fully automated fashion. To this end, industrial robots are mostly used. If the part is not exactly located where expected, the robot cannot continue its operating cycle.

The solution: 

  • Guidance of the robot via an electronic part-calibration system
  • 6D calibration of the part position (translation and rotation) by means of laser or infrared sensors integrated within the gripper – direct connection with robot controller via field bus
  • Automated adjustment of pick position – online

Your benefit:

  • Cost saving in comparison to conventional mechanical systems
  • Easy maintenance and ease of use
  • Robot guidance independent of lighting conditions or part variations
  • Minimization of training costs for users and maintenance staff
  • Compact, light, robust and integrated directly into the gripper, the system can be retrofitted to the production line without time-consuming modifications

Correction takes place directly and automatically in the ongoing production process. During setup the correct part position is learned automatically.

Easy to understand – short instruction time and ease of use.

Cost savings with BizLink gripper measurement solutions

Task:

To measure grippers or gripped parts for precision handling, e. g. for power-train applications, such as engine and transmission parts.

Solution:

  • 6D laser measurement of grippers / gripped parts using stationary sensors.
  • Changes in the gripper / part position are detected early and corrected online. This avoids collisions and optimises precision positioning.

Your benefit:

  • High precision 6D laser measurement
    – No calibration tools or reference parts required (high cost savings)
  • Robot program corrections take place directly and automatically within the ongoing production process
    – No failures caused by positioning factors
    – Avoids collisions
  • Eliminates manual program corrections
  • Simple to integrate and use
  • Simple commissioning via supplied robot program
  • High tolerance to ambient light
  • Measurement time < 20 s (dependent on configuration and application)
  • Cost savings compared to conventional mechanical systems
  • Protection class IP67
  • Suitable for harsh environments 
  • Use of different laser sensors – appropriate to application
