High speed pick and place (delta style robots)

Load Injection Molded Components into Crimping Fixtures

Business Situation:

  • Increased demand required an office supplies manufacturing company to expand production
  • Existing assembly machine loading equipment was insufficient to load product at the required rate


Automation Requirements:

  • Rate is 130 placements per minute
  • Plastic injection molded components are fed onto a conveyor
  • Inspect product to determine if each one is within given specifications
  • Pick randomly oriented plastic injection molded components from the conveyor at high speed and load them into a fixture for other downstream processing


Interactive Design Solution:

  • 2 High Speed Delta Style Robots - to acquire components from the conveyor and place them into pucks
  • 1 Six-Axis Robot to pick components from pucks and place them on fixtures
  • Custom end of arm tooling & vacuum generation
  • Machine vision cameras and dedicated lighting to locate and inspect product
  • Conveyor system for pucks and injection molded components
  • 17" touch screen operator interface monitors mounted flush into the face of enclosures
  • Robot Safety Guarding
  • Robot Bases/Component Mounting Structure
