When deciding how to move parts and materials from point A to point B, we look to do it in the most productive and safest way possible. Our manufactures and partners provide a vast array of possibilities in dealing with the simple to the most demanding of applications. Our goal is to provide a solution to assist operators in doing their job in a safer, more productive manner, without creating new obstacles. This can sometimes be done with simple “off the shelf” solutions, but when necessary we have the expertise and resources to engineer a solution that can work for you.
ToolMatics and Eckhart partnered for this turnkey application (see video below). The customer was looking to inspect up to 120 inspection points in 60 seconds. This was accomplished by using two collaborative robots with vison cameras mounted on them. The operated, using a lift assist designed and built by Toolmatics/Eckhart, would place the component into the fixture that was also designed and fabricated by ToolMatics/Eckhart, and then initiate the robot inspection.
If an operator should walk into the working area, using a fllor scanner the co-bots would slow down or completely stop given the distance between the operator and the robots. This application used Eckhart’s FlexCheck system that is designed for these types of applications. We are very proud of this application and hope we can help you with similar projects in the future.
