Fast setup of automated grinding applications through close integration of process monitoring and optimization using ArtiMinds RPS and LAR

CHALLENGE

For a customer project, SHL, an expert in the development of flexible robotic cells in the field of surface finishing, was asked to carry out trials for the automated grinding of medical disinfectors. One of the challenges is to compensate the product and process tolerances so that the exact desired amount of material is removed at any time. Therefore, solving the application requires a dynamically adapting regulation of the robot motion depending on the occurring process forces.

APPLICATION

In addition to the development of mechanical and pneumatic compliance systems and corresponding tests, SHL decided to carry out a project with ArtiMinds to test the suitability of force/torque sensors for the required adaption of the system. In this context, the ArtiMinds RPS software simplified the commissioning of the hardware components used and the programming of force-adaptive movements of the robot.

Another challenge was to find and set the optimum process parameters for an optimal grinding result. Continuous monitoring and evaluation of the achieved surface quality is usually assessed by visual inspections and manually feeling the surface after the grinding processes. This requires great experience and special process expertise. The iterative adjustment of individual process parameters in the robot program moreover demands a high level of knowledge in robotics.

WHY ARTIMINDS?

This grinding application required the removal of the exact desired amount of material at any time. Therefore a dynamically adapting regulation of the robot motion depending on the occurring process was necessary to compensate product and process tolerances. ArtiMinds RPS simplified the commissioning of the hardware components used and the programming of force-adaptive movements of the robot.

SOLUTION

For this reason, the software ArtiMinds Learning & Analytics for Robots (LAR) was deployed to optimize the process quality in a streamlined and target-oriented manner. The software automatically monitors and visualizes data such as robot movements, sensor data from the force/torque sensor and error codes from the robot system. This provides detailed insights specialized to the actual process and simplifies the interpretation of the data to derive optimizations.
The close integration of process monitoring and optimization made possible by ArtiMinds’ software solutions enabled:

  • the realization of the required process compliance by means of sensor technology
  • a much more efficient way of adjusting and finding the optimal settings of the process parameters of the robot program
  • an increase of process quality

so that the flexible grinding system could be set up within a very short time.
