Collaborative Applications

The term “collaborative applications” refers to using a type of robot which is designed to work in close proximity to humans, possibly even directly controlled by human workers through touch and guidance. This type of robot is different from traditional industrial robotic arms which are faster, heavier and more powerful, and too dangerous for humans to work with directly, and are caged off in factories and wherever else they are used. Basically, the range of typicals applications where Cobots are useful includes Assembly, Machine Tending, Palletizing, Inspection, Arc Welding, Glueing, Bonding, Polishing, Deburring - all of those applications where classical robots are used for. With Cobots, you sacrifice speed for the chance of fenceless installations and satisfying a need for real human-robot interaction. The range of typicals applications where Cobots are useful includes Assembly, Machine Tending, Palletizing, Inspection, Arc Welding, Glueing, Bonding, Polishing, Deburring.

Cow Milking

Robots are used for cow milking in the dairy automation industry. Robotic milking stations perform teat cleaning and milking procedures, following the cow's movements guided by intelligent laser camera and machine vision guided. In combination with the transponder identification of the cow, the milking protocol is cimmunicated to the central management software, this helping to collect accurate data and achieving lower empty rates and better milk yields.

Pick & Pack

Picking and Packing is a variation of Pick & Place for Packaging applications, where the placing motion is modified to fill parts into containers, boxes or crates. Some people say PPP - Pick, Place and Pack. Therefore, it is a core process in Packaging Industry and Logistics. Compared to classical Pick&Place, the Placing motion of a packaging operation requires some more motion versatility to place or stack parts in a certain set-down pattern, this is why 6-axis GP Series robots are used here. When placing parts into Carton boxes, flexible trajectories could be required to prevent side walls or lid of cartons to fold in. Depending on the gripper design, all kind of worklieces like boxes, bottles, bags can be packed.

Pick & Place

Robot Pick and Place, High Speed Picking. A pick-and-place robot is used to automate the process of picking up objects and placing them onto a surface in a set position and orientation. This action is frequently used to sort or stage products in a specific array for a downstream process, such as trays or cases, where fixed machinery or another robot can properly handle the products. Typical pick & place jobs are used for high speed picking, collating, part-transfer, singulation, sorting and inspection. In many cases, parts are coming along a conveyor belt, and the pick & place motion helps to sort or arrange the parts into a certain order at the place location.

Press Tending

For sheet metal press tending or stamping applications with high duty cycles, our press handling robots are ideal. Yaskawa MOTOMAN Integration Partners have developed solutions for part infeed, transfer and pack-out/racking of sheet metal press lines and stand-alone press systems. They offer custom end-of arm tooling, as well as interfaces to various presses and equipment, and support press line control system features diagnostic capabilities for the line and each individual press. We are supporting our Integrators by providing excellent press tending manipulators and controls, as well as technology like encoder/conveyor and communication interfaces, Functional Safety Features to manage safe operating zones and workspaces, simulation and engineering tools, helping to optimize equipment layout and maximize throughput.

Quality Inspection

Quality Inspection is a wide application field for robots. Recently, it has become also a fast growing application field for Collaborative Robots like the HC10 because of their easy-to-teach handguiding and option to be installed without fenceless  Robots can handle workpieces to stationary quality inspection sensors, or present parts directly to a human for visual inspection.  Robots can handle inspection devices (e.g. sensors of all kinds, metrology scanner measuring heads).

Sealing, Dispensing and Glueing

ACCURATE AND CONSISTENT APPLICATION OF MATERIAL. Yaskawa MOTOMAN Robots for sealing, dosing, dispensing and glueing (gluing) applications. This excellent motion capability is important for robotic sealing applications - bead application, flat extrusion, swirl application, sound dampener application, cleaning and activating glueing area, 2K application. Typical sealing applications include automotive car bodies, powertrain and engine parts (pumps, cylinder head), windows, electric switchboards and, PCB boards and many more. A robotic adhesive application process can be dynamic (applying adhesive beads), falling under the dispensing category - cleaning and activating gueing area, 1K/2K application.

Surface Finishing

Robotic Automation of surface finishing applications can be done by bringing parts to a stationary grinder or sander and holding the parts precisely or moving along a specified path. Or the Robot may handle the finishing/polishing tool and follow the part surface, applying a defined force to the workpiece. Mostly a good job for our GP35L or GP50 robot models. Polishing applications for larger parts, like car or aircraft bodies, are using larger and/or longer reach robots from our GP-Series - e.g. reworking a weld seam on a car roof with a GP180-120. Recently, collaborative installations for finishing/polishing with the HC10/HC20 come up, with the advantage to realize fenceless installations and simple programming by hand-guiding.

Surface treatment and Abrasive Blasting

Robotic Abrasive Blasting, Sand Blasting, Dry Ice Blasting, Co2 Blasting with Yaskawa Motoman Robots. Surface Treatment for Paint Parts. Motoman Industrial robots are well suited to automate this procedure, as the have a large workspace, and their programming flexibility allows perfect adjustment of trajectory, distance and blasting direction, either by trial and error, or by (semi-) automatic path generation through CAD/CAM tools. CO2 snow blasting is used for robot-guided pretreatment of plastic parts in paint shops. The surface remains dry. Dry Ice Blasting is barely abrasive or nonabrasive, often used to clean objects or for deburring. The blasting medium does not leave any residues. Sand blasting with Industrial Robots are very competitive in terms of price, programming and flexibility. Motoman robots with IP65/67 classification and standard high quality paint can withstand tough environments, however it is common that blasting robots are wearing a robot protection suit.

Ultrasonic Welding

Robotic Ultrasonic welding is widely used in the Automotive Tier1 industry. Applications range from exterior parts (reont and rear bumpers), interior components (seats, side door trim, center console, insulation cotton) to engine compartment components (water chutes, battery covers, cylinder head cover, engine covers), to lighting, filters and acoustic foams. Welders can be operated immediately without heat-up time. Cycle times are short, and energy consumption is low.
