Robotic Machining Cell with Vision Inspection

 
 

A FANUC M-710iC/50 robot with iRVision 3DL picks unfinished parts from a wheeled cart, takes them to a vision inspection station for error checking and places them on a transfer stand. The M-710iC/70T Toploader robot, also with iRVision 3DL, picks a part from the stand and loads the part into the first of two FANUC Alpha T-14iF ROBODRILL machines. The Toploader then unloads the semi-finished part from the first ROBODRILL and loads it into the second one. Upon completion, the M-710iC/70T transfers the finished part to a part drying stand, from which a second M-710iC/50 robot with iRVision 3DL picks and then manipulates it against a compliant deburring tool. Finally, the second M-710iC/50 robot places the completed part onto a second transfer stand. All three robots use FANUC Dual Check Safety Speed and Position Check software.

The M-710iC robot series offers payloads ranging from 20 kg to 70 kg, and a reach of 1360 mm to 3110 mm. Multiple mounting methods including floor, ceiling, angle and wall, make it possible for users to have better access to unusual work pieces. The M-710iC/70T robot has a 70 kg payload, a 1900 mm reach, and is available in either an under-slung or side-slung configuration. The under-slung configuration suspends the robot arm underneath the rail structure and offers a symmetrical work envelope on both sides of the rail while the side-slung configuration suspends the robot arm off the side of the rail structure and allows for maximum vertical reach and maximum stroke. With a wide selection of rail lengths, a payload range of 10 to 200 kg, and reach of 1.5 to 2.2 meters, the Toploader series meets virtually any application need.

FANUC Robotics offers the most versatile line of robots in this class. The FANUC iRVision system is a ready-to-use robotic vision package, available on all FANUC robots, requiring only a camera and cable – no additional processing hardware.

Key Technology Demonstrated

 
 
  • An M-710iC/50 uses iRVision 3DL to locate and inspect parts
  • The FANUC Alpha T-14 iF ROBODRILL is one of many machining cells offered by Fanuc Robotics
  • An M-710iC/50 with iRVision 3DL picks raw parts from a wheeled cart, and inspects them using an iRVision error proofing function.
  • The M-710iC/70T Toploader robot, also with iRVision 3DL, loads a part into the first of two FANUC Alpha T-14iF ROBODRILL machines.
  • M-710iC is also available as a Toploader robot, and can be mounted in an under-slung or side-slung configuration
  • The Toploader then unloads the semi-finished part from the first ROBODRILL and loads it into the second one.
  • The M-710iC/70T transfers the finished part to a part drying stand, then an M-710 iC/50 robot picks and deburrs the part.
  • A second M-710iC/50 robot places the completed part onto a second transfer stand.
  • All three robots use FANUC Dual Check Safety Speed and Position Check software.
