We provided various fully automated handling cells which pick gear shafts from an transport belt and place them into hardening crates. Due to the hardening process these crates get quite a bit deformed. In order to be able to place the gear shafts without touching the crate we implemented a camera, illumination on the robot head. Using the image processing we developed it is possible to determine the right position of the holes and, based on these positions, insert the shaft at the right position and angle.
An force-sensitive robot is used in order to be able to detect any eventual collision with the crate.
The system includes crate supply and of course al necessary safety measures for handling the crates as well as the gear shafts.
