This robot cell was designed for the grinding and cutting of cast iron and finished castings. The cell can be used by changing the tooling for various applications.
For example, for deburring, polishing or brushing workpieces of different materials.
The design of the gripper and the type of the robot are adjusted for every workpiece.
Incorporation and spreading of blanks:
The operator sets the blanks (two or more parts, depending on type) ina turn table. After the blanks were inserted and being finished editing in the cell, the turntable rotates
The blanks are being introduced into the cell, and the finished parts can be removed. The device on the turntable is coded, allowing the system to detect which type of part to be machined.
Processing of blanks:
The robot, which is equipped with the appropriate gripper (grippercoded monitoring incl. automatic docking system), collects workpiece and transports it to the first grinding station. The gripper change is done automatically and when changing the command the robotextracts the gripper from its store. Electric and pneumaticconnections are automatically docked. Depending on the work step, thegrinding stations, which are equipped with different abrasives, are approached and the processing is realized. Within the cell, 2 grinding stations are mounted. The abrasives are manually upgradable.Pneumatic grinding waves palletizing the disc changes indication is also provided. As soon as the workpiece is finished processing, it is againplaced by the robot on the turntable and a new workpiece is added .
After a certain number (experience value) of processed workpieces the wear condition of the grinding means is measured by the built-up on the robot measuring system. It corrects the trajectory for processingaccordingly. In the grinding station, the disc must be adjusted after a certian number of cycles being irregularly worn. For this purpose, ahead with a puller is mounted on the robot. After dressing ameasurement run is done with the robot. If the workpiece type has changed, the robot stores the no longer required grabs and adopts thenew type needed gripper from the gripper station. When deburring the feed is automatically controlled.
