The precise measurement of grippers and the components in their grasp presents a great challenge in process automation - for instance, in powertrain applications or where engine or transmission parts need measuring. Local company LEONI protec cable systems GmbH has succeeded in developing a system that uses a fully automatic inline process to accurately measure grippers and components and ensure objects are gripped correctly – and it’s unveiling this advintec 6D laser measuring system at HANNOVER MESSE 2016.
What makes the advintec 6D laser measuring system so special is the laser sensors' ability to work in up to six dimensions so that changes to either the gripper or the position of the part can be quickly detected and corrected online. This not only avoids collisions but also helps get positioning as accurate as possible. The ultra-precise advintec 6D laser measuring system operates without any aids or reference components, which not only saves costs but also automatically corrects the robot's programming directly and automatically - and without interrupting the production process. There is no need for manual program corrections, the system is easy to integrate and operate, and it’s simple to commission using the supplied robot program. This also makes it a very attractively priced alternative to conventional mechanical systems. Last but not least, the advintec 6D laser measuring system offers increased plant availability, exceptional quality assurance, trouble-free scalability and standardization.
