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.

US marines from 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment test the awesome futuristic new MAARS, MUUT, PD-100, Instant Eye & PGI Phantom military combat robots developed by the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory. The Modular Advanced Armed Robotic System (MAARS) is a robot that is being developed by Qinetiq. A member of the TALON family, it will be the successor to the armed SWORDS robot. It has a different, larger chassis than the SWORDS robot, so has little physically in common with the SWORDS and TALON robots. The Multipurpose Unmanned Tactical Transport (MUTT) robot is a a tethered unmanned vehicle designed to follow human movement, carry supplies and perform a wide range of possible missions for forces on-the-move. General Dynamics Land Systems has developed the Multi-Utility Tactical Transport, or MUTT – a 54-inch wide, five-foot long, 750-pound four-wheeled amphibious unmanned vehicle engineered to help dismounted infantry units. The PD-100 Black Hornet Nano is a military micro unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developed by Prox Dynamics AS of Norway, and in use by the Norwegian and British Army. The unit measures around 10 × 2.5 cm (4 × 1 in) and provides troops on the ground with local situational awareness. They are small enough to fit in one hand and weigh just over half an ounce (16 g, including batteries). The UAV is equipped with a camera, which gives the operator full-motion video and still images. They were developed as part of a £20 million contract for 160 units with Marlborough Communications Ltd. An operator can be trained to operate the Black Hornet in as little as 20 minutes. The air vehicle has three cameras; one looking forward, one looking straight down, and one pointing downward at 45 degrees. A Black Hornet package contains two helicopters, and since a 90-percent charge is reached in 20-25 minutes, the same as its hovering time, when one needs to be recharged the other is ready to fly. Top speed is 11 mph (18 km/h). In October 2014, Prox Dynamics unveiled a version of its PD-100 Black Hornet with night vision capabilities, fitted with both long-wave infrared and day video sensors that can transmit video streams or high-resolution still images via a digital data-link with a 1 mi (1.6 km) range. Over 3,000 Black Hornets had been delivered to date. The other equipment they are testing ranges from unmanned ground and aerial vehicles, new technology in expeditionary medicine, reusable energy and water purifying systems. The Warfighting Labs identifies possible challenges of the future and develops new warfighting concepts and tests new ideas to help develop equipment that meets the challenges of the future operating environment.

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.

Each of the six FANUC robots in the system is synchronized to grab a single case at a time and move all cases onto the mainline at the same time. Six different-flavored cases enter the system one after the other as the FANUC robots unload them. The purpose for this lies in a downstream system that takes bottles from the cases and makes mixed packs. A FANUC iRVision-equipped camera is mounted to the head of each of the six FANUC robots, allowing the robots to see the case pattern before starting. Once each FANUC robot knows the pattern, they begin to depalletize using the correct pattern. Three lasers are also mounted on each robot in order to triangulate a rotation position of the case so that the robot head rotates correctly to pick each case. Additionally, each robot head contains pneumatic plates to grip the case as well as vacuum cups to grip the tray for a two-by-twelve format. Once empty, the pallets are transferred to a pallet stacker to be stacked and taken away by a forklift. This fully automated system was previously a manual process that was very labor intensive, involving repetitive, heavy lifting. Now this robotic system can handle 24 packs as well as two-by-twelve packs in a tray. Each FANUC robot can handle approximately five cases per minute, for a total throughput of 30 cases per minute and over 10,000 cases in one shift between the six FANUC robots.

Food handling robots: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/food-grade-robots.aspx FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Smart Motion Robotics developed this automated system to utilize a series of FANUC robots for fast and efficient cutting and tray packing of small cakes. With the help of these reliable FANUC M-10iA/10S short arm robots, 8,000 cakes can be cut and tray packed per hour by two systems. Cakes enter the system hot out of the oven, traveling down a conveyor and passing through FANUC’s iRVision system, seen here as a red light. FANUC robots locate each cake using iRVision, then pick the cakes and place them onto a platform where the robot performs three cuts with a serrated knife to cut the cake into six slices. The cake is then picked and placed onto a second platform holding a plastic tray. Once in its tray, the cake is ejected to a reverse-direction conveyor, which feeds into a Flow Pack machine. Smart Motion Robotics developed a custom de-nester that readies the next tray. There are two systems of eight robots in each system, which are operationally self-contained with a built-in 20% system failsafe. FANUC iRVision tracks the cakes and allocates them to each FANUC robot equally. Both systems combined are capable of processing over 8,000 cakes per hour. All of the tooling and system hardware was designed and built by Smart Motion Robotics. The robots even clean their own knives. The system is easy to maintain, and trays are fed into the de-nester from outside the cell.

Plastics assembly system: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/assembly-robots.aspx Based in Houston, Texas, FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Palladium Control Systems developed this robotic system for inspection and assembly of plastic injection molded parts. The system utilizes two different robot models from FANUC. First, FANUC’s high-speed M-1iA/0.5A six-axis Delta-style Robot is used for its precise pick and place capabilities. The system also uses the versatile and compact FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot for assembly of the parts. The system process starts with an inspection of a plastic injection molded part using FANUC iRVision 2D Error Proofing. After inspection, the tabs move down a parts feeder. The FANUC M-1iA/0.5A robot uses a 2D camera and vision guidance to pick the part off of the parts feeder, and feeds it to the FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot for assembly. The FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot assembles the molded part by inserting each plastic tab into its place in the part. This system can handle a total of three different plastic injection molded parts. Through excellent engineering and the use of these two high-speed industrial robots from FANUC, Palladium was able to achieve cycle times of approximately 15 seconds.

Cosmetics bottle handling: http://www.fanucamerica.com/home/industrial-solutions/industries-we-serve/plastics-manufacturing-automation FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Farason Corporation developed this robotic system to utilize the reliable and compact FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot for cosmetics bottle handling. The system starts as cosmetics bottles are fed into the machine in pucks from the upstream equipment. A feedscrew indexes four pucks at a time to the Pick and Place area, where a long-arm FANUC LR Mate 200iD/7L Robot picks the bottles 4-up out of the pucks. Then, in one continuous motion, the FANUC LR Mate Robot presents the bottles to an inkjet printer, then an inspection camera to verify that the codes are printed in the correct location. The FANUC LR Mate Robot then places the bottles into flights on the cartoner conveyor to be transported to the downstream cartoning machine. Through the use of robotic handling, this system is able to handle 50 bottles per minute. To learn more about FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Farason, please visit http://www.farason.com.

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.
