V-Guide™ Robot Guidance - Automated Bumper Transfer from Conveyor to Paint Rack

POSTED 02/11/2019

Transferring bumpers from a conveyor to paint racks was proving impossible to automate for an un-guided robot. Even when the robot made a pick, it wasn't precise or repeatable enough to place into the rack correctly. Adding V-Guide™ to the robot made all the difference. A 2-sensor V-Guide™ system calculates the bumper offset for every possible pose. With a known offset, the robot adjusts to make a precise pick every time.
