Robot station with MPS modules – The equipment level as an introduction to industrial robotics

This equipment level is created based on the basic design of the MPS robot station and the two robot handling and robot assembly modules as a introduction to industrial robotics. The upstream station feeds the bodies of the pneumatic cylinders to be assembled to the robot via a slide. The robot determines the orientation of the bodies and places them in the assembly holder in the correct orientation. It takes the piston from the pallet and assembles it in the body. Controlled magazines feed the piston springs and cylinder end caps to the robot. The fully assembled pneumatic cylinder is then placed on a slide.

Topic: Handling and assembly
In many industrial applications, robots handle and assemble workpieces and modules. Getting to know these areas of application is an essential part of an introduction to robotics.
