  • GARotics – Green asparagus harvesting robotic system

    Due to lower harvesting costs, there is an increasing trend towards the production of green asparagus. Today harvesting is done by seasonal workers, however, the increasing labour costs and the lack of available labour supply forces farmers to optimize the harvesting process and to introduce harvesting aids. With automated harvesting the availability of labour force would play a less important role and make the harvesting much more flexible and cost efficient. While for the cultivation of green asparagus the degree of automation is quite high, automation of harvesting is still an unsolved challenge. Several approaches for automated machines have been made, but none of the known automated harvesters can guarantee a picking rate and quality like manual labour. This is mainly because of the d...

It produces six electrical harness assemblies per minute. Some portions of the process are considered sensitive intellectual property and are not shown in this video. An LR Mate 200iD robot picks new wire from the decoiler, clamps it into place in a winding head, and the machine winds the wire to the appropriate length as selected by the operator through the HMI. Once the appropriate length is coiled, the wire cutters snip the wire, and the LR Mate handles the end of the wire back into a clamp within the winding head so that the coil doesn’t unravel. One LR Mate is responsible for two turntables that include six coil winding heads. After the coils are wrapped in plastic, they are moved to the FANUC M-10iA robot. The FANUC M-10iA robot picks a coil and presents it to a heater. As previously mentioned, the system handles six different lengths of wire assemblies. Therefore each pallet needs to be automatically adjusted to fit the proper coil size. To do this, a height sensor relays information to a servo, which sets the appropriate pallet height for each individual coil. The pallets of coil move down a conveyor to two LR Mate 200iDs, designated for deploying inner and outer wire ends. The wire ends will eventually be cut to length, stripped of insulation, straightened, and inserted into connectors. The coils then move to an inspection station. The vision system checks the wires for length, straightness, and shape. The coil is also checked for continuity before being placed on the finished conveyor. Finished windings travel down the conveyor to the end of the system process where an LR Mate picks finished windings and places them on a conveyor out of the system. Rejected windings are place on a separate reject chute; Coils could be rejected if they lack continuity.

This video presents an experimental feasibility study on a novel bipedal robot concept and prototype that takes inspiration from humanoids but features fundamental differences that drastically improve its agility and stability while reducing its complexity and cost. This Non-Anthropomorphic Bipedal Robotic System (NABiRoS) modifies the traditional bipedal form by aligning the legs in the sagittal plane and adding compliance to the feet, reducing the total number of actuated degrees of freedom to four. The platform is comparable in height to a human, but weighs much less because of its lightweight architecture and novel leg configuration. The inclusion of the compliant element showed immense improvements in the stability and robustness of walking gaits on the prototype, allowing the robot to remain stable during locomotion without any inertial feedback control. The platform was also able to traverse shallow ramps and steps and portray a certain level of emotion through the dynamic motions it performs. NABiRoS was able to achieve walking speeds of up to 0.75km/h (0.21m/s) using a simple pre-processed ZMP based gait and a positioning accuracy of +/- 0.04m with a preprocessed quasi-static algorithm. Strategies for changing the walking direction and traversing uneven terrain are currently being investigated.

FANUC America is proud to present the 2017 System of the Year Award to RND Automation & Engineering for their custom robotic workcell developed for assembly, testing and packaging of thermal insulators. Using a total of six robots from FANUC’s diverse robotics product range, combined with over 20 years of experience and expertise, RND was able to accomplish producing approximately 15 parts every 30 seconds. The overall system consists of two phases: In the first phase – the assembly process – 11 total stations and 4 FANUC robots are used. First, two FANUC M-1iA Delta-style robots use FANUC iRVision to locate and pick parts from feeders. FANUC iRVision allows for future product changes via a flex feeder as opposed to a hard tooled bowl feeder. The parts are inspected using a laser to check their length, then transported through the process in boats. Parts are then mechanically coupled using a hydraulic forming head. Dual machine vision cameras inspect the ends of the parts after forming. A FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot then moves the boats to deposition stations, where paste is deposited on rotating parts, and then checked by vision. The parts are then heated in order to set the paste. A FANUC M-10iA robot picks the boat of parts from the conveyor, deposits the boat itself onto a return conveyor, and then delivers the parts to a rack. Using vision, the robot determines the location of the racks, and then builds a new layer. Phase two of the process – the inspection and packaging phase – consists of one FANUC LR Mate and one FANUC M-10iA robot. Parts are picked from the racks by the FANUC M-10iA robot and delivered to boats. 2D matrix readers identify each boat uniquely. The parts are then thermally tested. After thermal testing the parts enter the laser marking station. Finally, once the parts are marked, they emerge and are bulk packed into boxes on a conveyor by a FANUC LR Mate 200iD/7L long arm robot. Through the use of custom automation from RND Automation & Engineering, this system delivers maximum part quality and repeatability with minimum scrap and rejected parts.

Due to lower harvesting costs, there is an increasing trend towards the production of green asparagus. Today harvesting is done by seasonal workers, however, the increasing labour costs and the lack of available labour supply forces farmers to optimize the harvesting process and to introduce harvesting aids. With automated harvesting the availability of labour force would play a less important role and make the harvesting much more flexible and cost efficient. While for the cultivation of green asparagus the degree of automation is quite high, automation of harvesting is still an unsolved challenge. Several approaches for automated machines have been made, but none of the known automated harvesters can guarantee a picking rate and quality like manual labour. This is mainly because of the difficulty and the complexity of the asparagus detection. GARotics improves the automatic harvesting systems for green asparagus by enhancing the quality of the asparagus detection and by increasing the detection rate as well as the harvesting rate. Furthermore, GARotics presents a new gripping mechanism with three robotic arms. In addition, data are collected to support the yield forecast and planning of the next harvest run. The video describes the concept of the experiment, the technology used and shows the prototype harvesting green asparagus on a test field. GARotics is a joint project of Strauss Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH, Universität Bremen and C.Write & Son Ltd.

Palletizing and layer forming dairy products: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/palletizing-robots.aspx FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Motion Controls Robotics designed and integrated this fully automated layer building, palletizing, and pallet removal system for a dairy product manufacturer. The system features two FANUC M-410iB robots specifically designed for palletizing. The FANUC palletizing robots’ acceleration and high speed keeps the system running smoothly at the desired rate. Additionally, the system features six FANUC M-10iA material handling robots for orienting and moving cases into the build area. Cases coming down an infeed conveyor are scanned sorting them by flavor and assigning them to a preset layer-building robot in the correct build area. Each case is placed based on a programmed orientation to build a complete product layer. There are six layer build areas with two palletizing robots picking finished layers. The FANUC M-410iB palletizing robot’s high speed and flexibility allows for just two robots to place full layers on three pallet locations each. Strategically placed HMIs track the infeed, build, and exit conveyor areas counting the progression of the layers in each of the 6 building stations and informing the manufacturer of system status. When a layer is complete, the product is moved through to the palletizing robot pick area. The manufacturer has a variety of product types and sizes. Different case sizes are directed and sorted into the proper build areas. The material handling robots are equipped with an End of arm tool designed for efficient handling of the case. Once a pallet is complete, it is transferred from the palletizing position on a conveyor to one of the two stretch wrapper stations. The pallet is tightly wrapped to keep contents neatly contained. Upon completion of a pallet, a new pallet request is triggered and the automated pallet dispenser sends a new pallet that is waiting for the next layer- with no delay in the palletizing rate or pattern. The stretch wrapped pallet continues on the journey to cold storage or the shipping area where it is placed for delivery. This robotic application is designed to be a hands-off, end of line solution – fully automated from beginning to end. The dairy product manufacturer has seen a marked reduction in labor issues related to their cold work environment and has plans to add the same system in other locations. FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Motion Controls Robotics is keeping manufacturers competitive with quality robotic solutions.

Robotic shelf picking: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/picking-and-packing-robots.aspx FANUC America Authorized System Integrator IAM Robotics develops mobile autonomous robots that retrieve products from distribution centers. These FANUC LR Mate robots are designed to pick products for e-commerce and small-quantity order fulfillment. Industry trends have strained the capabilities of manual labor and increased the need for warehouse automation. These robotic retrieval units allow warehouse customers to support rapidly growing sales and new demands for faster delivery. IAM Robotics engineered these mobile units to significantly reduce automation cost and deployment time by providing industrial robots that work with existing warehouse infrastructure. The FANUC robots navigate and locate products through the use of 3D Vision. IAM Robotics' Rapid Vision technology enables the robots to see the warehouse environment in real-time, so they can meet growing demands for faster order fulfillment. It also allows the robots to automatically find and pick products on shelving without any precise setup. IAM Robotics’ Rapid Vision technology, combined with FANUC’s compact and highly reliable LR Mate robot, has demonstrated picking speeds up to 1100 items per hour – that’s almost 200% faster than sustainable manual rates. Founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by robotics experts from Carnegie Mellon University, IAM Robotics has developed the core technology for mobile picking robots. A first prototype system was demonstrated at Rochester Drug Cooperative in November 2014. During this proof-of-concept test, the robot was set up in under 24 hours and was able to see and pick products that had never been touched by an autonomous robot. Today, IAM Robotics is developing production robots to be deployed in live distribution centers in 2016. These novel robots will create new opportunities for applications ranging throughout the global supply chain and beyond.

Spool packaging and palletizing: http://fanucamerica.com/home/industrial-solutions/manufacturing-applications/picking-and-packing-robots FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Pearson Packaging Systems developed this fully automated system for erecting, packing, sealing and palletizing wire spools. These coils can weigh over 100lbs, so automating the process via this efficient robotic system has significant ergonomic benefits over hand packing. The process starts at the CE-25-G Case Erector, which erects and glue seals each bottom as cases move down the conveyor. The system takes advantage of the versatility and reliability of FANUC robots in several application areas. First, a long-arm FANUC M-710iC/20L six-axis depalletizing robot unloads top and bottom spool caps from a pallet. The robot’s custom end of arm tool precisely grips the caps, and presents it to an end cap inspection station to ensure proper orientation. The robot places top caps directly onto the end cap conveyer, and bottom caps are placed onto a cap inverting mechanism for proper orientation onto the conveyor. Meanwhile, a multi-function FANUC R-1000iA/80F robotic top-loader picks and places a bottom cap, wire spool, and top cap into each case. A FANUC 3D Area Sensor is used for the cap depalletizing robot, and scans each layer of empty caps, identifying each cap position for the M-710iC/20L. One cap per layer is checked on the inspection station to check the cap orientation. Packed cases exit down a conveyor and are moved to the CS25-G Case Sealer, where the full cases are glue sealed shut. Finally, a palletizing station uses the FANUC M-410iC/185 robot with a multi-function end-of-arm-tool to palletize the finished product. This FANUC palletizing robot is also responsible for picking new pallets and slip sheets, in addition to the finished cases. Included with this system is a user-centric designed graphical HMI, a standard feature on all robotic solutions from Pearson Packaging Systems.
