ActiNav Autonomous Bin Picking for Machine Tending
April 16, 2020
ActiNav setup is intuitive using the Universal Robots teach pendant, teach by demonstration. The intuitive flow-based wizard-guided setup allows in-house resources to do the work in just six steps.
Higher machine uptime with collision-free motion: Autonomous collision-free motion within its environment means fewer operator interventions and system restarts.
Less refilling with deep bins: Autonomous motion enables ActiNav to operate inside deep bins which hold more parts, allowing the systems to run unattended longer and require less filling. When the bin gets low on parts, it notifies workers by an alert light that it’s ready for more parts.
Accurate part placement: Machine tending requires parts to be accurately placed and oriented in the same way each time. The high-resolution sensor and CAD matching enable high accuracy picks and ensures the part is placed in the same way into a fixture each time.
