Automotive Parts Manufacturer Increases Production Efficiency with 3D Robot Vision Solution
A leading Automotive Parts Manufacturer in Europe, specializing in the machining of car drive-train components, faced a challenge in its production process. It still had to rely on tedious manual loading of the conveyor belt towards the CNC machine.
The manufacturer turned to a cutting-edge Pickit 3D solution: a 3D robot vision-guided bin picking system. This system is specifically designed for picking tulips/CV joints for car drive-trains. It uses a Fanuc R-30iB Plus robot equipped with a Pickit L-SD robot-mounted system. The robot smoothly picks components out of a random bin and places them onto a station. This station precisely orients and places each component in a calibration jig with a SCARA robot, all in an average cycle time of 17 seconds.
The benefits of the 3D Vision Solution were immediate and impactful. Tedious manual labor was entirely eliminated, and production now runs fully automatic 24/7. Moreover, the system offered the potential to scale production even further.
