Bin picking comes in many shapes and sizes, from high payload automotive and heavy equipment manufacturing applications, to pick and drop e-commerce order fulfillment and part sortation applications. But one area with unique requirements is bin-picking applications for machine tending where precision pick-path-and-place and rapid deployment is required. Machining operations range from simple drilling, tapping, or trimming up to loading multi-axis CNC machines. These applications are usually in high mix/low volume environments, where the flexibility, operator-friendly safety protocols, and ease of programming of leading collaborative robots are required.
This 60-minute Webinar examines the barriers to automating precision bin-picking applications including cost, floor space, programming time and complexity, and rapid change-over requirements. It also looks at how the latest generation of collaborative robots are meeting those challenges.
Attendees will learn about:
- Challenges of automated bin picking
- Applications for automated bin picking
- New technologies that enable precision part pick-and-present
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
