FANUC America Authorized system integrator, Esys Automation, develops, implements and supports complex robotic solutions. Esys is recognized in the automation industry for its outstanding quality and innovation.
The process shown uses a FANUC M-900 series robot for Front of Line destack of blank sheets. Utilizing a Double Sheet Detector, the destacking application is capable of detecting multiple parts, searching and identifying the top of a part stack, as well as rejecting unwanted, damaged parts. The end of arm tool utilized is a FANUC Linear Press Transfer unit, allowing for quicker, smoother part transfer with less strain on the robot.
Then a FANUC R-2000 series robot equipped with Fanuc iRVision software is utilized for the End of Line Unload of the formed parts. Both robots are equipped with an automatic tool changer interface for easy End of Arm Tooling interchange allowing the same cell to be used for different jobs with minimal setup time. The cycle time was significantly improved with the implementation of the FANUC Linear Press Transfer unit on the Front of Line FANUC M900 series industrial robot.
