robotics in the workplace and dispels some of the myths and fears of
Here we are using two Fanuc
M-900's with R-30iB controllers to load panels to a paint conveyor
line. As always, cycle-time was critical so we utilized Fanuc's
iRVision 2D Vision Application with a robot-mounted camera to locate
panels to minimize downtime due to variation in panel location. This
system can accommodate over 500 different panel styles.
features a collection of projects featuring Fronius welding equipment.
United Robotics is an authorized Fronius Service Partner.
Here we are
using two Yaskawa Motoman MH250's to unload a paint conveyor line.
Cycle-time was critical in this application. The overhead gantries lay
paper between each panel to ensure the finish is not marred. This
system accommodates over 500 different panel styles.
This is a
compilation of the various ABB projects we've done over the years. We
have samplings of welding, material handling, plasma cutting, machine
tending, and virtual robot simulations. We have also shown some robot
simulations taken from the design phase to the real-world
implementation of the project.
project, we have integrated an ABB IRB 1600ID robot with Fronius power
supply, an ABB IRBP 300R positioner, and an ABB IRB 4600 20kg material
handling robot. The IRB 4600 transfers the weldment to a Kitamura VMC,
then to a Mecco Laser Marker, and finally to a collection station on
the IRBP 300R. We have also added an ABB BullsEye and Binzel torch
tending station for the IRB 1600ID.
job requires robotics, sometimes effective solutions can be had by
implementing simple automation controls. On this project we were
welding thick to thin aluminum utilizing a Fronius TransPuls Synergic
2700 CMT power source.
This is the
installation of an ABB FlexArc 750B. It's equipped with an IRB 2600ID
robot, IRBP 750B positioner, and an ABB BullsEye. The power source is a
Fronius TPS 5000 with a Binzel WH 500 welding torch. The torch tending
station is a Binzel TCS-6PP.
This is an ABB IRB 1410 Robotic
Arm utilizing an off-the-shelf manual style plasma cutter with ohmic
sensing. Programming was accomplished by means of touch sensing and
mathematical offsets for hole locations and angles.
This is a
sampling of some of the various virtual robot simulations we have done
for customers. We utilize ABB's RobotStudio and Motoman's MotoSim
software in this clip. Robot simulations provide excellent visual aids
and can help with cost justification, cycle time and reach analysis.
This is a project utilizing two
Yaskawa Motoman arc welding robots with Fronius power supplies. We use
a Yaskawa Motoman material handling robot for part removal, inspection,
storage, and paint-line delivery.
