How Robots can perform complex operations quickly and safely
Discover The Power of Industrial Mitsubishi Electric Factory Automation Robots
The force sensor available for vertical robots of the Melfa FR series solves this problem. The robot can be managed in every direction by dynamically modifying its movements.
The most complex assembly operations are performed thanks to the answers that the robot can give to the stresses detected by the force sensor.
The force sensor provides all the information related to force and position.
The applications for the force sensor are different:
TESTING AND MEASUREMENT: Recording of data relating to efforts made by the robot during product or prototype testing operations. The wide range of real-time data collected makes it possible to improve significantly the quality of the final object design.
ASSEMBLING: Extremely complex assembly operations, with extremely small and delicate parts. Examples can be found in the fields of precision mechanics or microelectronics.
POLISHING, SANDING OR CUTTING 3D: In these operations, the control of the robot is extremely important. The precision of movements and efforts guaranteed by the force sensors allows for obtaining top‐level quality results.
MATERIAL HANDLING: Handling of small parts or extremely delicate objects. The efforts exerted on the objects should be managed perfectly and the work areas are often very limited. Two or more robots can collaborate in moving an object, harmonizing their movements without exerting any effort on it.
- Able to perform complex operations
- Handling of delicate objects
- The robot can work in force control mode or follow the shape of an object without having to define the trajectory to follow
- The robot learns faster thanks to the display of the reaction forces detected by the sensor
Mitsubishi Electric’s proposal includes:
- Force sensor
- Control unit
- Adapter for the connection between the sensor and the robot’s wrist
- 24V DC power supply
- Adapter cable for internal wiring
- The serial cable between the control unit and the sensor
- SSCNET III cable
