In view of the productivity rise, Sick company releases news about the safe and “pacific” cohabitation of people and robots during the assembly of electric motors.
The process is as simple as the underlying technology is sophisticated: a robot picks up the electric motors on the conveyor belt and makes them available for the operator for further machining. Therefore, the operator positions a wire structure on the electric motor and the robot repositions the piece in its own place on the conveyor belt. Thus, the robot acts as flexible production assistant that facilitates the operator’s work during ergonomically unfavourable sequences of manual activities. The tools that enable this sequence include microScan3 safety scanner lasers Flexi Softn safety control unit. Particularly outstanding is the innovative safeHDDM™ scanning technology that features high immunity concerning the environment light and dust.
