Mechatronic – Intelligent

Two Powerball lightweight arms with sensitive mechatronic 2-finger parallel grippers PG-plus with an integrated camera module are mounted on a flat, highly dynamic linear module from SCHUNK. They logistically connect the four assembly stations and the test and packing station. The seeing gripper determines the position of the workpiece holder, grips it sensitively and places it in the exact position. The optical detection enables fully automated handling of bulk parts without a programmed position and orientation. The software determines the position and rotation of the workpieces, sends this data to the gripping system, therefore making bin picking possible.
