Screwing

Bolting in one of the most commonly used joining techniques between different plastic and/or metal parts in all industries. Robots must have a special screwdriving tool and screw feeder to reliably pick up screws. The ability to control the screwdriving speed and the required press force during the process makes it one of the most demanding assembly tasks with robots. Due to the flexibility drag&bot is already used in several industrial applications for screwing. In the video on the right, you can see an example screwdriving application with UR 10 robot, Basler ACE camera, Schunk gripper and Atlas Copco screwdriver.

Clip mounting

Clips are often used as a more flexible and easier connection technique between different parts. Similar to bolting, robots often need to be force sensitive to ensure a fast and reliable clipping process. drag&bot has already been used in various applications for clipping parts. The video shows a force-controlled assembly process with a KUKA robot and a Schunk gripper.

Force controlled assembly

Assembling and joining parts using only pressure and force between parts is a common technique in the automotive or white goods industry. For robots, this means variations in the position of the parts, using cameras to locate the various parts and check the result after the parts are assembled. drag&bot is used for various assembly tasks in different robot applications. In the video the automated positioning and joining of flexurally limp components with a UR 10 robot is illustrated.

Graphical user interface for every robot – drag&bot OS

  • SCENARIO DESIGNER – 3D models of the robot cell and the workpieces can be added here to the visualization.

  • BUILDER – Applications can be created from predefined function blocks using drag and drop.

  • WIZARDS – Graphical operating and input aids: Users can adapt function blocks to the specific requirements of their application without expert knowledge.

  • OPERATOR COCKPIT – This is where the created applications are executed. One click takes you back to the builder and you can extend and optimize the application.
