In the first stages of assembly, individual components such as the casing of a cordless screwdriver, are fed into the production process. This can be challenging when you have differing orientations and several variations of each part, some of which could have delicate surfaces that must not be damaged by grippers so accurate location is a must.
The position of the components can be safely & reliably determined with the VISOR® Robotic vision sensor mounted directly on the robotic arm. This transmits the result simply and effortlessly directly to the robot controller. The FT 10 BlueLight sensor, installed on the gripper, checks that a component is present. Therefore the entire process is constantly monitored preventing errors.
