Integrated robotic systems
In the highly innovative and rapidly expanding field of robotics, in an ever-increasing numbers of industrial sectors, it is essential to apply the latest technologies, designed and refined to meet the requirements of the specific application.
Listed below are some of the most commonly used robotic applications:
Thanks to the wide variety of applications we have encountered, we have experience in developing solutions based on technologies from leading brands.
This means we are able to offer our customers what we believe to be the best technology for the specific application, rather than seeking to satisfy a range of customers with specific requirements.
We are seeing an increase in the frequency of requests for systems which include intralogistics automation. Through our network we are able to offer solutions including the integration of AGV/AMR systems to deliver flexible automation of goods handling.
This term refers to the gripping organ which the robot uses to manipulate the workpiece or tool for performing processing operations. It is also generally referred to as a ‘tool’.
- Parallel grippers
- Jaw grippers
- Suction cups
- Magnetic grippers
- Custom grippers
- Soft hand
- Tools (e.g. welding torches, chucks, milling cutters)
- Tool change (automatic or manual)
- Tool magazine
There is currently a steady increase in robotic applications that require the use of vision systems. Depending on the application, they may require:
- 2D systems
- 3D systems
Both of these technologies are increasingly being used in synergy with machine learning algorithms that extend and enhance their possible range of applications.
- Measurement sensors (e.g. scanners, profilometers)
- Jointing systems
- Rotary tables
- Positioners (single or multi-axial)
These are special types of feeders that deposit a given quantity of objects in a random manner, which, thanks to the special spiral structure and a series of vibrations generated by the associated motors, individually return the objects to a predefined position and orientation.
- TIG con apporto di filo
GRIPPINGn CHANGE STATIONS
- Objects, mainly used in bending, that provide a resting point for the robot which can use them to perform the ‘grip change’, which involves temporarily putting down the workpiece (e.g. sheet metal) and then immediately picking it back up but from the opposite side.
Automatic centring devices are crucial mechanisms for achieving a precise and rapid alignment of a workpiece, usually prior to machine tending operations.
