With ArtiMinds RPS, nearly all electronics assembly processes excluding SMD-placing 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.

Application examples:

  • assembly of plugs and wires

  • automated screw fastening

  • placing of THT components

  • mounting of PCBs and casings

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 joined robustly 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.

Application examples:

  • joining parts with tight tolerances

  • placement of plastic clips, seals, plugs or rivets

  • gearbox and engine block mounting

  • placing and fastening of screws

ArtiMinds RPS combines offline and online programming in a unique way to solve applications requiring precise tool paths. Easily create tool paths based on the CAD geometry of your parts or import a tool path directly from your CAD file. Quickly check for collisions and reachability to figure out the best layout of your robot cell. Connect to the real robot to calibrate the robot program and optimize parameters.

Application examples:

  • polishing and buffing of surfaces

  • grinding and deburring of edges and corners

  • glue bead dispensing

  • painting
