In the ceramic tile sorting automatic packaging production line, the robot, with industrial vision and various types of end effectors, can automatically identify and locate various workpieces on the conveyor belt, so as to realize the robot's high-speed and accurate dynamic continuous sorting operation with the conveyor belt.
According to the different working range, load, number of shafts and types, there are more than ten different types of robots selected to closely meet the actual application requirements and achieve economic, practical and cost-effective. Automatic packaging robot has been widely used in food, electronics, mechanical parts, ceramic tile and other industries.
The width of the production line is about 2.5m, and the surface temperature of the ceramic tile is about 90 ℃. In the follow-up, it was divided into 4 branches in a step-by-step manner. Each branch line is arranged with two robots. Each robot sorts and stacks tiles in turn according to a / B area to ensure continuous work.
Mitsubishi high performance touch screen and PLC controller are used in the upper system of ceramic tile sorting and packaging automatic production line. Four sets of Keba robot control system and robot peripheral packaging auxiliary system are controlled in the middle layer. Two sets of high-speed robot control system are adopted, i.e. one set of high-speed robot control system. The servo network adopts high-speed EtherCAT network.
The control of the packaging assistant system in the periphery of the automatic packaging robot. It can be subdivided into six subsystems: unpacking, entering, stacking, pushing, exporting and sealing.
PLC (Keba) program control system has RC interface to communicate with robot program control system, axis interface is used to communicate with servo axis system, and IO interface is used to communicate with all external IO signals. PLC program is responsible for all logic control and information management except robot action, such as control and information management of visual system.
At present, advanced robot technology, computer technology, automatic control technology, high-speed real-time network communication and other high-tech are applied to the ceramic tile production industry which is relatively backward in automation level, and has mastered many core technologies and practical experience of robot application in this field.
The change of production line automation mode has a significant change for the automatic packaging production line industry, not only in the work efficiency but also in the production efficiency has made a breakthrough.
