Robotic System for Inspection & Assembly of Plastic Parts – Palladium Control Systems



Plastics assembly system: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/assembly-robots.aspx

Based in Houston, Texas, FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Palladium Control Systems developed this robotic system for inspection and assembly of plastic injection molded parts. The system utilizes two different robot models from FANUC. First, FANUC’s high-speed M-1iA/0.5A six-axis Delta-style Robot is used for its precise pick and place capabilities. The system also uses the versatile and compact FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot for assembly of the parts.

The system process starts with an inspection of a plastic injection molded part using FANUC iRVision 2D Error Proofing. After inspection, the tabs move down a parts feeder. The FANUC M-1iA/0.5A robot uses a 2D camera and vision guidance to pick the part off of the parts feeder, and feeds it to the FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot for assembly. The FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot assembles the molded part by inserting each plastic tab into its place in the part.

This system can handle a total of three different plastic injection molded parts. Through excellent engineering and the use of these two high-speed industrial robots from FANUC, Palladium was able to achieve cycle times of approximately 15 seconds.
