Robot-based mechan­i­cal assembly

Auto­mate demand­ing assem­bly appli­ca­tions eco­nom­i­cally and profitably

The soft­ware 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.

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.
