Assembly & handling

Every part in the right place

There’s no-one in sight, everything is moving as if by magic: conveyor systems are rumbling, robot arms are gyrating, workpieces are being separated, picked up and put down, and then transported on conveyor belts and finally assembled. SensoPart sensors ensure that all these procedures are carried out seamlessly and without any human intervention. 

 

We have the right sensor for every task in our portfolio: our fork sensors in a robust plastic housing are suited for detecting small parts on vibrating conveyors; for applications in confined spaces, our F 10 series of sub-miniature laser sensors are the solution – these tiny sensors can even be fitted on a robot gripper arm. Our VISOR® Object vision sensors are ideal for complex inspections of the position and completeness of components, while our VISOR® Robotic is the best choice for seamless cooperation and communication with handling robots.
 

Typical applications

 

Colour sensors and vision sensors for the correct feeding of components
Correct sorting of the feeder

When feeding parts from a vibratory bowl, it must be ensured that the wrong components are not installed - this control function is performed by the FT 25-C color sensor with its precise color recognition. If the parts also have to be checked for the correct position, the VISOR® Object is used.

Checking manual work steps with the vision sensor
Assembly control at the manual workstation

Every handle of the worker must be in place - so that the right part is removed from the containers and assembled in the right order.
The VISOR® Object with its detectors can carry out various tests simultaneously - thus it supports the worker and checks the individual work steps before something important is forgotten or something wrong is installed. And this also from difficult angles to give the worker the greatest possible freedom of movement.

Description
Application
Description
Automated bolting of the upper housing part

The upper part of the housing must be screwed to the lower part of the housing. To do this, the sensor must detect the position of the screw holes in the housing top.

Application
Positioning
Description
Check of the correct feeding of screws in the right position

The quantity of screws required for battery pack assembly is stored in a bunker feed system  and fed from there to the screwing systems accordingly. For smooth production, it is important that misaligned screws are detected by the sensor and only those in the correct position are fed to the screwing system.

Application
Detecting & checking
Description
Detection of the screws in the feeder

The quantity of screws required for battery pack assembly is stored in a bunker feed system and fed from there to the screwing systems individually. For subsequent control of the correct position of the screws , they must be detected at a specific position in the feed system in order to provide a trigger signal.

Application
Detecting & checking
Description
Filling quantity monitoring of the screw supply

A large number of screws are processed during the assembly of a battery pack. Bunker feed systems are used to stock these screws. In order to avoid an interruption in production, it is important to be informed in good time that screws need to be replenished.

Application
Measurement
Description
Position detection for automated bolting

The battery modules must be screwed into the lower part of the housing. The screw holes are usually located under mechanical devices, which in turn have an opening. The sensor is to be used to detect the position of the screw holes underneath.

Application
