High speed pick and place robotics are allowing companies in nearly every industry to remain competitive and lower manufacturing costs. Advancements in vision technologies allow for pin point accuracy as products are transferred from one location to another. By taking human hands out of the pick and place process, you’re ensured that your customers get a consistent, quality product each and every time while decreasing your production costs. Robotics can solve ergonomic issues with repetitive operator motions in picking and packaging applications.
How Pick and Place Robots Operate
High speed pick and place robots offer a variety of configurations to offer flexibility in the production line. Robots can be mounted on a stand, mounted overhead and in a variety of other configurations to offer maximum working envelope and reduce the robots footprint in your facility. Once integrated, product will enter the work area after proper orientation has been determined by an upstream vision system. A customized end-of-arm tool will work quickly to move product into another process or pack a carton for shipping. During the pick and place process, other automation systems can be integrated such as labeling or pass/fail inspections.
Benefits of High Speed Pick and Place Robots
- Increased productivity
- Elimination of operator fatigue
- Increase in product quality
- Easily integrated 2D vision systems
- Faster conveyor speeds possible
- Reduced placement errors
- Increased vision recognition of parts
Where are Pick and Place Robots Integrated?
JH Robotics has worked with a variety of companies in a vast amount of industries to help increase production times by integrating pick and place robots into the manufacturing and production processes. Our team of engineers can meet with you in your facility to determine where your production line can benefit from pick and place robots and help you determine future cost savings. Typical applications include:
Inspection and Quality Stations – Robots can use vision systems to visually inspect items before continuing to an upstream process on a fast moving conveyor belt.
Quick Assembly – In a matter of seconds pick and place robots can pick up a piece from one conveyor, perform an assembly operation, and place the part on another conveyor with high precision.
Quick Sorting – parts of various shapes and sizes can be rapidly determined through a vision system and automatically sorted for upstream applications.
Rapid Packaging – Vision systems can identify parts as they move down a high speed conveyor, determine orientation and communicate with a pick and place robot that picks up the part and places it into packaging accurately and consistently.
