Robot LR-Mate 200id/14L was implemented into system which collects stacks of incoming components from the specially designed stacking mechanism. The robot then carried these components (positioned vertically or horizontally) and stacked them in pre-opened cartons. In addition, meanwhile, it picked up a carton divider from a special feeder and separated a full layer of components.
The reviewed robot is characterized in particular by good precision of movements, which appeared early at the beginning. The robot's lifting capacity was adequate for our application, allowing us to construct two customized grippers with several pairs of pneumatic actuators attached to them. As a result, the flexibility of the robot's application, as advertised by FANUC manufacturer, was confirmed
In our application, there were rather no problems with the robot itself, more occurred on the side of the design of the special grippers, the divider feeder or the stacking mechanisms. An additional obstacle was the very limited amount of space for this application, but the robot coped with it quite well.
