CUTTING AND PICKING
Spools with skins are moved to the rollout place with the help of mobile robots. Spools with skins are taken from a mobile robot with the pick-and-placer and placed into the cutting and picking cell. With the help of the carriage the film with the skin is rolled out on the surface of cutting and picking cell vacuum table. Upon vacuum pump switch on the filmed skin is pressed against the vacuum table, thus ruling out irregularities and pinches.
Robots with the knife tool conduct cutting along with a program generated in advance, in accordance with tasks coming to the cell’s server from PLM via MES. Upon cutting robots’ clamps pick parts at points defined by MES. Robots form small batches and put them to a mobile robot, equipped with the “platform”, to transport parts to a warehouse or to the next cell.
