Customer: Specialist in the field of measurement technology from Switzerland.
Challenge:     Development of a robot handling system for efficient loading and unloading of a grinding machine.

A robot cell consisting of a safety range, a magazine, a rinsing or washing area and the robot was planned as an addition to the grinding machine.

The magazine is filled manually by an operator, after which the machine can operate autonomously for up to 24 hours and be monitored by remote control.

For quality control, a small airlock for test parts was included, through which randomly processed workpieces can be removed during operation for manual inspection.


Procedure used: High-resolution machine vision
Benefit of the concept: The automated handling system not only increases efficiency and precision, but also saves material costs. Operation of the machine by remote control for up to 24 hours without the intervention of an operator requires the magazine to be loaded once.
