high volume, high diversity, lowe cycle time
Modern assembly lines must be able to adapt to new products within a very short time. The range of parts is so wide that standard solutions are often not sufficient. Gripping modules must be capable of handling a wide variety of workpieces reliably and quickly. Because time is money! With the servo-electric gripping modules by WEISS ROBOTICS you can master any challenge from simple palletizing tasks to joining processes. The grippers impress with high-precision position measurement, which enables good-bad part detection already during the process. The controlled and configurable gripping force ensures that even sensitive workpieces are gripped reliably.
Solutions by WEISS ROBOTICS
Thanks to preset-based configuration, gripping modules can be parameterized dynamically to cope with high part diversity.
Fast and powerful
The servo-electric drive with proven belt kinematics ensures rapid movement over the whole stroke.
Force-controlled, sensitive gripping to prevent damage to the components.
Integrated gripper part detection detects feeding and depositing errors, ensuring high reliability of the test process.
High precision in component pick-up and placement, robust in the event of placement errors.
Minimum quantity lubrication and sealed guides prevent operating fluids from escaping, protecting the assembly.
In end-of-line testing, the previously equipped assemblies are electrically tested and any necessary programming is carried out. For this purpose, depending on the application, the assemblies are placed in simple test adapters or undergo a burn-in test in an oven to ensure 100% reliability. Gripping the assemblies is particularly suitable where a high packing density makes suction difficult. Gripping is also recommended with nail bed testers, where a high positioning accuracy is required.
Especially in the high-mix low-volume segment, a short setup time represents the decisive advantage. WEISS ROBOTICS offers smart servo grippers with a large stroke for robot-assisted end-of-line testing, with which even sensitive assemblies can be gripped force-controlled and safely. With its finger kit, WEISS ROBOTICS also offers the possibility to quickly and easily adapt the gripper fingers to different board sizes.
When handling workpieces after the manufacturing process, it is common to perform quality assurance checks. Here, complex camera-based systems are often used to automatically record relevant dimensions. With high-precision position sensor technology, the servo-electric gripping modules from WEISS ROBOTICS combine workpiece handling and inspection. With resolutions of up to 1/100 millimeter, quality features can be detected in advance and defectively manufactured parts can be sorted out. Thus, on the one hand, sporadic manufacturing defects but also, for example, wear can be detected in the system without the need for human intervention. This saves time and money and avoids process errors that go undetected for a long time.
Especially important for automation with robots: use the GRIPLINK technology for smart integration of the gripper module into the robot controller. Also integrate additional sensor technology into your process via this tech and make your process more flexible, e.g. with laser sensors for position and distance measurement.
It is often small workpieces or assemblies that have to be transferred in groups from a production line to a workpiece carrier for further processing at a high cycle rate. When filling the workpiece carrier, care must be taken to ensure that it is filled without gaps in order to ensure optimum utilization of the system. All this places various demands on the gripping system.
The gripping systems from WEISS ROBOTICS come with integrated gripper part recognition as standard, so that batches can be filled reliably and without errors. They trump with high gripping speed and force-controlled gripping at the same time. This ensures that components are not damaged. With GRIPLINK technology, multiple gripping heads can be implemented to enable synchronous gripping with several gripping systems.
