The rapid development of industrial automation has accelerated the process of modern automation. Manufacturing enterprises have higher and higher requirements for production, packaging, transportation and other links. Manual operation has been far from meeting the needs of industrial automation production capacity. At this time, industrial automation robot man came into being.
Among them, the stacking robot is the extension and expansion of the functions of the hands, feet and brain of workers. It can replace people to work in dangerous, toxic, low temperature, high heat and other harsh environments; Help people complete heavy, monotonous and repetitive work, improve labor productivity and ensure product quality.
1、 Application advantages of palletizing robot
The palletizing ability of palletizing robot is much higher than that of traditional palletizing machine and manual palletizing;
The structure is very simple, the failure rate is low, and it is easy to maintain and repair;
There are few components and parts, and the maintenance cost is very low;
Low power consumption, which is about one-fifth of that of mechanical palletizer.
The stacking manipulator can be set in a narrow space, with high site efficiency and flexible application.
All operations can be completed by hand on the screen of the control cabinet, and the operation is very simple.
The application of palletizing manipulator is very flexible. One manipulator can handle different products of up to 6 production lines at the same time. When the product is updated, you only need to input new data and recalculate it before it can run, without the modification and setting of hardware and equipment.
The stacking type and the number of stacking layers can be set arbitrarily. The stacking type is neat and convenient for storage and transportation.
In short: its advantages in many aspects, such as strong working ability, large scope of application, small floor space, high flexibility, low cost and convenient maintenance, make its application more and more extensive and become a development trend.
Industrial robot palletizing production line is a highly integrated project, which also has many equipment, including: conveying unit, folding unit, sealing unit, detection unit, inkjet printing unit, palletizing unit, etc. The key components of the palletizing industrial robot production line include the following key parts:
Mechanical gripper of palletizing industrial robot
As an important part of the palletizing robot, the working performance of the palletizing manipulator (also known as gripper or gripper), including high reliability, simple and novel structure, small mass and other parameters, is of great significance to the overall working performance of the palletizing robot.
Different types of mechanical grippers can be designed according to different products, so that the stacking robot has the advantages of high efficiency, good quality, wide application range, low cost, and can complete the stacking work well.
Commonly used palletizing robot hand grabs mainly include:
Gripper type mechanical gripper
It is mainly used for high-speed bag stacking. The gripper of this kind of manipulator is mainly used for stacking bags, such as flour, feed, cement, chemical fertilizer, etc.
Splint type mechanical gripper
It is mainly applicable to the stacking of boxes. This kind of gripper is mainly used for the stacking of whole boxes or regular boxes of packaged goods, and can be used in various industries. You can code one box (box) or multiple boxes (boxes) at a time.
Vacuum suction mechanical gripper
It is mainly applicable to the stacking objects that can be absorbed. This kind of claw is mainly used for the stacking objects that are suitable for suction by suction cups, such as film covered packaging boxes, tinned beer boxes, plastic boxes, cartons, etc.
Combined mechanical gripper
It is applicable to the cooperative grasp and release of several stations. It is a flexible combination of the first three claws, and can meet the stacking of multiple stations at the same time.
It is used to detect metal foreign matters mixed in the production process of food, medicine, cosmetics, textiles, etc.
Weight rechecking machine
Through weight detection, we can also judge the quantity, missing and wrong loading of finished products, and make statistics on qualified products, underweight products and overweight products respectively, so as to achieve the purpose of product quality control.
Automatic culling machine
It is used to complete the process that the packaging bag is removed in the conveying sequence when there are metal containing abnormalities in the packaging bag and the weighing recheck of the packaging bag exceeds the weight error. The automatic eliminator can also be integrated into the metal detector or weight rechecker.
Bag pouring machine
It is to transport, reverse and transpose the material bags sent by the conveyor according to the predetermined marshalling procedure, and then transfer them to the next process.
After passing through the conveying line, the packaging bag must be compacted and shaped by the roller, and the possible accumulation in the packaging bag can be sent to the waiting roller conveyor after being evenly dispersed.
It is matched with the mechanical gripper, which is convenient to grasp.
Other conveyor belts
It is convenient for turning in the process of material transportation and docking with the next process.
With the more and more extensive application of palletizing robots, enterprises will no longer worry about being unable to recruit people, nor will they worry about being affected by epidemic and other factors. Palletizing robots can be set up according to the production efficiency needs of enterprises, so as to meet the production needs.
