Loading and unloading a production cell with different processing machines and grid baskets by a „FANUC“-robot type R 2000 iB 125L
The task definition comprised the design, software, commissioning, construction, and delivery of a plant with the required documentation (including a manufacturer's declaration in line with EC Machine Directive 89/392 EWG.
The loading of the feed belt with the blanks is done by hand. The FANUC R 2000 iB 125L robot picks up the blanks from the belt and places them in the lathe. The parts are then transported to a gear cutting machine, deburring machine and washing machine. In the cell are still 2 storage tables with 6 storage spaces and 3 turning stations. Another component of the system is a test drawer for moving the parts in and out as required by the operator. The gripper is a 3 - finger gripper. After mechanical processing, the parts are placed in the grid baskets. If a box is loaded, it can be removed by the operator from the system and replaced with an empty box. Thereafter, the process begins again.
When selecting a part for the test drawer, the robot removes the finished part from the lathe, puts this on the test drawer and equipped the lathe with a new part of the feed belt. The parts must be reinserted after the test procedure.
The jaws on the gripping system are designed so that the parts are gripped from the outside. The system is encapsulated with a safety fence in accordance with the valid safety regulations and a door with safety interlock.
