Elec­tron­ics assembly

Robustly auto­mate the pre­cise han­dling of sen­si­tive components

With the soft­ware ArtiMinds RPS, nearly all elec­tron­ics assem­bly processes can be auto­mated. Sen­sor-based robot pro­grams using vision sys­tems or force sen­sors address the per­va­sive process vari­ances preva­lent in elec­tron­ics assem­bly which are caused by flex­i­ble mate­ri­als like soft plas­tics and rub­ber as well as by tol­er­ances result­ing from processes like sol­der­ing or adhe­sion. The process vari­ances can be ana­lyzed using ArtiMinds LAR to pin­point part-spe­cific prob­lems and opti­mize the production.

The auto­mated man­u­fac­tur­ing of elec­tronic com­po­nents has so far been asso­ci­ated with con­sid­er­able dif­fi­cul­ties. This was par­tic­u­larly evi­dent in the pre­cise han­dling of flex­i­ble, often sen­si­tive com­po­nents. Also man­ag­ing a high vari­abil­ity at low vol­umes was not that easy. Most of these processes can now be imple­mented eas­ily with the ArtiMinds RPS and the use of visual and tac­tile sensing.

Appli­ca­tion exam­ple: THT assembly

If you, for exam­ple, want to assem­ble cir­cuit boards with wired com­po­nents such as capac­i­tors, coils, con­nec­tors or switches, this is usu­ally done using the man­ual THT method. Here, the sen­si­tive, flex­i­ble com­po­nents are inserted through con­tact holes into the cir­cuit board and then sol­dered. Due to the resilience of metal parts and plas­tics, as well as the tol­er­ances of the com­po­nent hous­ings and the high umber of vari­ants of elec­tronic com­po­nents, the use of auto­mated solu­tions has mostly been unprofitable.

ArtiMinds RPS sup­ports you in automat­ing THT assem­bly with the help of robots. By means of force-con­trolled move­ments such as the con­trolled inser­tion or scan­ning of sur­faces, the indus­trial robot can also be used for such fil­i­gree tasks. In par­tic­u­lar, sen­sor-adap­tive appli­ca­tions and the inte­gra­tion of grip­pers, cam­era sys­tems and force-torque sen­sors can be imple­mented quickly and robustly with ArtiMinds RPS.
