Application example

Inserting battery modules into the housing bottom part


The task

In the next step, the robot gripper inserts the components into the housing bottom part. This requires non-contact position detection of the housing bottom part.

The challenge

When inserting the battery modules into the housing bottom part, high precision is required due to the confined installation space. The smallest mismeasurements lead to major damage to the battery, up to and including a dangerous cell short-circuit.

Our solution

With the VISOR® Robotic, the exact position of the housing bottom part is determined and transferred to the controller in robot coordinates. Due to its compact and robust design,  the vision sensor can be easily integrated directly into the robot gripper. With the help of standardized calibration plates, the image coordinates can be converted into world coordinates.

Your advantages

  • Thanks to the fully automatable hand-eye calibration, the VISOR® always provides real X/Y and angle information, without time-consuming back-calculation on the robot controller
  • With its high computing performance in a compact design, the VISOR® hardware is predestined for use directly on the robot gripper
  • Reduced cabling effort due to e.g. AIDA-compliant, robot-compatible push-pull cables
  • The VISOR® software offers various functions for determining the position of components
  • Easy connection to robotics systems of leading manufacturers with functions such as:
    • Automated calibration to the robot coordinate system
    • Automated validation of position data
    • Standardized coordinate transmission
