We can implement a robot, which will be able to work with an operator (or work independently) on repetitive processes. This solution has great flexibility, because programming the robot is very simple and allows to quickly change its workplace.
The customer needed a robotic pickup directly from the carousel injection molding machine.
The reception of components by the operator were very onerous due to its high temperature. Hot plastic parts also could not be dropped into containers due to the risk of deformation. In addition, it was necessary to ensure even temperature reception on a flat surface after putting away the element.
The limitation was a tact of 15 seconds - taking and putting the component from the machine to the storage place.
We designed a robotic station based on the YASKAWA 6 axis robot. The robot carried out the process of collecting the molding using suction cups and deposited it on a flat surface of the cooling device.
The project also included a safety box based on SICK controllers
