ROBOT FOR DELICATE ASSEMBLY

24 September 2012

Carclo Technical Plastics has successfully achieved production validation for the delicate assembly of a new diagnostic life-sciences product.

An impossible task to perform manually, a small six axis  FANUC Robotics robot is used to assemble and in-process check each component in the main body of a multi-compartment cuvette.

Engineered by plastics automation specialist, Hi-Tech Automation, a delta configuration robot, the FANUC Robotics M-1ia robot, was selected for the application. Required to handle a weight of less than 5gm, the 1kg payload M-1ia presented the most suitable solution.

Control of the entire cell is through the FANUC Robotics intelligent R-30iA controller with integrated functions including iRVision, Robot Link and Collision protection.
