Quality and completeness of assembly are immediately inspected in the Robotec cell. The inspection is performed according to principle: as easy and safe as possible. Depending upon the task, an iRVision, an optical Keyence sensor or a basic probe is used.
There are currently three different assembly variants being produced on the system.
A change occurs in a flash, as Daniel Hartmann confirms: "The program can be changed over in a few minutes. The workpiece carriers were also equipped with a quick-change system, enabling the switchover to another type to proceed efficiently." The program can be enhanced at any time, in case another type is added.
Helpful detail: all workpiece carriers are stored in a space-saving and, above all, handy area underneath the rotary table. In order to prevent them from being mixed up, they have a distinctive anodised colour.
The company takes no chances during a format change. A barcode is printed on the "operation plans", the accompany documents of an order. All the necessary information is stored here. If the system is empty, the new order can be initiated.
