What kind of robots have we programmed?

Kuka Robots

End of Line Test for electronic switches

Electronic switches are tested using a Kuka Robot for pressing the switches while measuring the pressing force and distance. Force is measured using a load cell mounted on the flange of the robot and read by Siemens PLC. Distance is internally measured by Kuka robot.

End Of Line Test for 2D / 3D laser measurement

Here it is an example on how a Keyence LJ-V Head is mounted on flange of Kuka Robot and used as 2D/3D Profiler. For these applications we have developed Robot full installation and robot + PLC program from scratch. In both cases, we teach TCP for each tool, and among each contact points we move using 50 – 100 mm -X Axis Offset (tool direction) in order to avoid collision. 

Palletizer for juice packs

Here it is an example on how to reteach conveyor positions and reference position for pallets for an old big Kuka robot.

ABB Robots

Dispensing 

ABB Robot is used for dispensing a glue/silicone following the 3D contour of component. Silicone has to be perfectly dusted.

End Of Line Test for 2D / 3D laser measurement

Here it is an example on how a Keyence LJ-V Head is mounted on flange of an ABB Robot and used as 2D/3D Profiler.

Fanuc Robots

Pick and place application

Fanuc robot was used in a fully automated crimping line for creating anchors comprised of a twisted cable and a bracket: robot did all pick and place operations among one cable cut machine, a feeder for brackets, 2 assembly and crimping hydraulic machines and 2 punching machines, process was controlled with a Siemens S7 PLC.

Summary
PLC LIN Test using Kuka Robot
Title
PLC LIN Test using Kuka Robot
Description

We use an 1200 Siemens PLC to control a Baby-LIN-MB-Device in order to communicate with the steering wheel, and this time we do not touch it with our hand, we touch it with a Kuka robot in 4 different positions. This robot is used on the same EOL Tester for pressing the buttons of the steering wheel while measuring the force (the other tool with force can be seen) and the distance from touching button until "button pressed" signal is received over LIN Bus.
