Bin picking comes in many shapes and sizes, from high payload automotive and heavy equipment manufacturing applications, to pick and drop e-commerce order fulfillment and part sortation applications. But one area with unique requirements is bin picking applications for machine tending where precision pick-path-and-place and rapid deployment is required. Machining operations range from simple drilling, tapping or trimming up to loading multi-axis CNC machines. These applications are usually in high mix/low volume environments, where the flexibility, operator-friendly safety protocols and ease of programming of leading collaborative robots are required.
This webinar will examine barriers to automating precision bin picking applications including cost, floor space, programming time and complexity, and rapid change over requirements, and how the latest generation of collaborative robots are meeting those challenges.
Attendees of this webinar will learn:
- Challenges of automated bin picking
- Applications for automated bin picking
- New technologies that enable precision part pick-and-present
