Robot-based mechan­ical assembly

Auto­mate demanding assembly appli­ca­tions eco­nom­i­cally and profitably

ArtiMinds RPS enables the automa­tion of com­plex assembly appli­ca­tions in a wide range of indus­tries. Parts made of rigid as well as flex­ible mate­rials can be inserted, joined, clipped, riv­eted, glued or screwed together using using force-sen­si­tive robot motions. Even chal­lenging appli­ca­tions become eco­nom­i­cally fea­sible due to the easy inte­gra­tion of force sen­sors and auto­matic robot code gen­er­a­tion allowing to quickly test dif­ferent assembly strategies.

Dif­ferent product vari­ants, small batch sizes and short product life cycles often make the robot-based automa­tion of assembly tasks unprof­itable for com­pa­nies. In addi­tion, these are usu­ally very com­plex and error-prone processes that can be solved more safely and quickly with human fine motor skills.

ArtiMinds Robotics - Robot applications for mechanical assembly

Appli­ca­tion example: Pre­cise assembly of var­ious components

.

For assembly processes it is often nec­es­sary to handle sev­eral com­po­nents with one robot. To assemble a cylinder head for example, the fit­ting sleeves and the seal must first be inserted before the cylinder head is mounted. This shows that in most cases, the com­po­nents also differ in mate­rial and geom­etry. There­fore com­plex gripper geome­tries are required. In the ArtiMinds RPS an automa­tion with a mul­tiple-TCP gripper solu­tion is easy to implement.
The com­po­nents have a high fit­ting accu­racy and require a lot of sen­si­tivity during assembly. Using the search algo­rithms of ArtiMinds RPS, the exact fit­ting posi­tion can be found first and after­wards the com­po­nents can be inserted while com­pen­sating the lat­eral forces and moments.

ArtiMinds RPS is there­fore the first choice when it comes to solving the most demanding assembly processes using indus­trial robots. With the help of sensor-adap­tive tem­plates, the robot soft­ware is able to exe­cute force-sen­si­tive processes such as clip­ping, screwing, riv­eting and plug­ging time-opti­mized and robustly or, for example, to even adapt the screwing speed. In the case of unsorted parts, a camera system can be easily inte­grated to localize and reli­ably grip the pieces. As the inter­faces are already imple­mented in ArtiMinds a simple and effort­less hard­ware inte­gra­tion is ensured.
