Han­dling and pack­ag­ing by strong robot arms 

Pro­gram robots robustly for han­dling & pack­ag­ing tasks

Solve all your han­dling and pack­ag­ing appli­ca­tions with a sin­gle soft­ware. Our ver­sa­tile pro­gram­ming tem­plates enable your robot to han­dle flex­i­ble mate­ri­als, such as card­boards, iden­tify and local­ize parts using vision sys­tems or pick up parts from stacks, blis­ters or any kind of work piece carriers.

Opti­mize your goods han­dling with the soft­ware ArtiMinds RPS. Using spe­cial pro­gram mod­ules, your robot can han­dle flex­i­ble mate­ri­als such as card­board or card­board boxes, align itself visu­ally or pick up goods from stacks, blis­ters or any work piece car­ri­ers and boxes (bin picking).

In logis­tics appli­ca­tions in par­tic­u­lar, there are often process vari­a­tions and prod­uct tol­er­ances, which have to be com­pen­sated by the robot (i.e. pal­letiz­ing tasks) With the pre­de­fined tem­plates of ArtiMinds RPS, such force-adap­tive robot move­ments can be robustly pro­grammed with­out hav­ing to write a sin­gle line of robot code your­self. In this way, tasks such as tight pal­letiz­ing can be eas­ily auto­mated with robots. If you would like to inte­grate vision sys­tems to detect objects, the vision tem­plates sim­plify programming.

Appli­ca­tion exam­ple: Pal­letiz­ing of card­board boxes

Pal­letiz­ing is a com­mon task in logis­tics and mate­r­ial sup­ply. In most cases, the parts that have to be pal­letized are unsorted with­out a defined posi­tion, e.g. in lat­tice boxes. This makes it dif­fi­cult to auto­mate such Pick & Place tasks.

With ArtiMinds +Vision the posi­tion of an object can be cap­tured by a cam­era. Thanks to the inte­grated inter­faces, ArtiMinds RPS processes this data auto­mat­i­cally so that the robot can grip the card­board cor­rectly and precisely.

If the card­boards are trans­ported on a con­veyor belt, for exam­ple, the robot must wait for the cor­re­spond­ing PLC sig­nal before the grip­ping process. Since ArtiMinds RPS sup­ports var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols, this appli­ca­tion can also be eas­ily solved with the software.

Why ArtiMinds Robotics?

Even in appli­ca­tions with cobots, which are inher­ently eas­ier to pro­gram, the pro­gram logic can quickly become com­plex as soon as sen­sors are inte­grated. Save time, money and human resources with ArtiMinds RPS by also being able to imple­ment sen­sor-based robot appli­ca­tions inde­pen­dently, e.g. to auto­mate the man­ual load­ing of machines.
