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.

Design and Characterization of Stormram 4: An MRI-Compatible Robotic System for Breast Biopsy Presented at the 2017 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) By Vincent Groenhuis, Francoise J. Siepel, Jeroen Veltman, and Stefano Stramigioli Abstract: Targeting of small lesions with high precision is essential in an early phase of breast cancer for diagnosis and accurate follow up, and subsequently determines prognosis. Current techniques to diagnose breast cancer are suboptimal, and there is a need for a small, MRI-compatible robotic system able to target lesions with high precision and direct feedback of MRI. Therefore, the design and working mechanism of the new Stormram 4, an MRI-compatible needle manipulator with four degrees of freedom, will be presented to take biopsies of small lesions in the MRI scanner. Its dimensions (excluding racks and needle) are 72x51x40 mm, and the system is driven by two linear and two curved pneumatic stepper motors. The T-26 linear motor measures 26x21x16 mm, has a nominal step size of 0.25 mm and the measured maximum force is 63 N at 0.65 MPa. The workspace has a total volume of 2.2 L. Accuracy measurements have shown that the mean positioning error is 0.7 mm, with a reproducibility of 0.1 mm. Velocity measurements with 5 m long tubes show a maximum stepping frequency of 8 Hz (maximum force) to 30 Hz (unloaded). These results show that the robot might be able to target lesions with sub-millimeter accuracy within reasonable time for the MRI-guided breast biopsy procedure.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Batch and individual robotic dispensing. Suitable for hospital, mail-order and community pharmacies. Consis robots store medicine packages at a high storage density and dispense them fully automatically. Their main benefits are the very fast stocking and dispensing speed and their modular construction. Depending on configuration, within one hour more than 2,000 packages can be stocked and more than 1,000 packages dispensed independently at the same time. Packages are dispensed either on demand or by batch dispensing. The orders are collected in the CONSIS NAVIGATOR software and then dispensed one after the other. Before dispensing, the optional CONSIS LABELMASTER labels the packages individually for each patient. This saves time and increases safety. With Consis robots, community pharmacies can process their repeat prescriptions in the dispensary while at the same time other packages are dispensed to the sales counters. In hospitals, inpatient and outpatient pharmacies can be served simultaneously with one Consis system. For hospital wards, medicines are dispensed individually per patient or as a batch order. Consis robotic solutions also take care of rapid and fully automatic order processing for mail-order pharmacies with fast-moving stock.

Motorcycle wheel milling & deburring: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/material-removal-robots.aspx This FANUC Innovative System of the Year Award Finalist from Acme Manufacturing uses robotic processes for milling and deburring of nine different styles of aluminum motorcycle wheels. A major challenge in developing the system was to be able to identify the nine different wheel types being loaded into the system from the nine separate die cast machines. The original process was extremely repetitive, labor intensive and exhausting. 15 total manual finishers were used for the process. Acme was able to successfully automate the process through the use of two FANUC R-2000iB/210F robots for gate removal, and four FANUC M-710iC robots for milling and deburring. Additionally, six FANUC iRVision cameras are used in the system of part identification and process alignment. The system starts as the aluminum motorcycle wheels are randomly presented into the system. FANUC iRVision identifies the parts and key process variables are carried out for all operations. A FANUC R-2000iB/210F picks a wheel and manipulates it through an Acme designed cut-off saw for gate and sprue removal. This includes carbide saw performance monitoring. Upon completion, the robot feeds the wheel to the two FANUC M-710iC milling and deburring robots. These robots grab the wheels and present them to an iRvision system used for unique tool frames since each part has a different casting variation. The robot moves the wheel to a fixed mill, which removes flash and qualifies the surface finish for compliant deburring operation. Laser tool monitoring is used for quality control. Finally, the finished wheels are conveyed out of the system. This robotic system from Acme Manufacturing produces one finished wheel every 34 seconds.
