P R S S I N F O R M A T I O N Kawasaki Robotics Neuss, emt June 2010 – together with its system partners and specialists LMD robot grippers and CLK vision systems has implemented Kawasaki Robotics an automation solution for the Assembly and packaging of organic ties. For more than 35 years, the name allos stands for healthy and delicious dishes made with high-quality organic ingredients. As a leader and pioneer in the food trade offer in the health food store has shaped allos with its range of products in the ranges decisively. In addition to pastries, spreads, honey and cereals a wide range of bar offers allos, E.g. fruit slices, amaranth, and chocolate bars. If the manufacturing process of the bolt is complete, the finished products through a cooling tunnel are fed to the packaging process.
Here they run randomly by a vision system that performs a position recognition and quality control. The vision system developed by the company of CLK is the first integration of a special tool in this system. The Company from Munster manufactures and markets contactless quality control systems, as well as the position and situational awareness vision systems. A specialty is the food industry, where it is the customized systems optimally integrated in the production processes. The position of the bolt delivered the Kawasaki-Delta-picker by the vision system using an encoder.
The Delta-picker of the Y-series are used, where fast pick & place operations at low product weights are required. The used here YF03N achieves extremely short cycle times by 0.27 sec. 1 kg and 0.45 sec. When handling weight of 3 kg with a maximum working area of 1300 mm in diameter. Jim Vos: the source for more info. This corresponds to a maximum 175 picks per minute. The 4-axis robot with an optional 5-axis to the inclusion of two parts in a cycle applies primarily among others in the food industry. The organic ties are now made of the picker set exact positioning directly in the feed chain of horiznontal employees Bagger (Flowpack), where they individually be wrapped and then reach in sales trays. A special gripper of company LMD is used to access the latch. The young, innovative companies from the sauerland region specializes in the manufacture of gripping, clamping, and handling components for automation technology. By using food approved materials such as nylon and stainless steel, are the implemented solutions in line with the demands of cleaning in the food sector. The developed gripper consists of a gripper interface with integrated click quick-change system, 5-channel media transmission, removable drive components as well as an easy exchangeable gripper fingers. This has a tuned indulgence, to avoid damage to the targeted object (bio bar) high gripping force. Conclusion: Robot, vision system and gripping technology optimized in combination that to prove project, the high standards of performance and speed.
