Robot with eye contact
Walking through the leading handling technology fairs or taking a look at market leaders' catalogs clearly shows that without a camera, a modern robot cell is worthless when it comes to future production. The camera is the basic prerequisite for one of the elementary forms of work in the future: collaboration between humans and robots.
In this context, the Robot Vision Cell is an extremely innovative learning environment in contemporary robotics training. It enables the potential of current robot applications and the trends in future applications to be outlined in a clear and practical way.
Priority 1: Safety
Robots operate quickly, powerfully and dynamically. Safety cages are therefore used to protect operating and maintenance personnel.
Safety must be the top priority and is an essential part of any training content. Thus, it is only logical that we have completely enclosed the Robot Vision Cell and fitted it with safety doors.
Welding is a typical example of a robot application that demands precision path control. In the Robot Vision Cell, appropriate tools and suitably shaped parts enable path welding tasks to be simulated.
Palletizing and assembly
Fast and precise assembly of part-finished or end products and removal or loading of pallets are standard tasks for most robotics applications. The workpieces from the modular production system and the appropriate pallets are therefore included.
Industrial design camera
The industrial camera communicates directly with the robot controller via Ethernet and can thus easily be integrated into the process as an additional unit – for position detection, color identification, for checking dimensions or, for example, for monitoring assembly processes.
Calibration and transmitted light unit
The calibration and transmitted light unit supports the camera in its quality assurance tasks. For example, it increases the accuracy of the tool positions and helps to detect the position of workpieces.
Configuration, programming and simulation
No learning system is complete without the necessary supporting software.
Therefore, the cell includes configuration and image processing software that can be used to set up and perform even complicated measuring and testing tasks.
The CIROS® cells simulated in 3D make a major contribution to efficient and varied training. Simulation also provides a high level of safety at the start of robotics training.
