Facial Tissue Paper machine automation from human operator to collaborative robots and grippers
/ Most recent by ricardodeazambuja
This is my first post. I am a Mechatronics (Industrial Automation and Robotics) engineer from Pakistan. For almost all of my career I have been working in the Industrial automation (PLC/ DCS/ SCADA/ HMI/ Historian/ SIS/ F&G/ Instrumentation) Design, Management, Commissioning and maintenance based roles. Now I am getting a chance to work on robotics related Projects too, and I am very impressed with the Universal Robotics and Robotiq products.
here is my question
We have a customer requirement regarding the robot.
The maximum pay load for the robot is 4 kg (excluding the gripper assembly) and maximum reach is 90 cm.
The robot has to
1. identify a certain width of a tissue log with a specific number of tissue sheets
2. pick up the tissue log
3. rotate the log through 90 Degrees
4. then put the log on to a conveyor belt near by
The Height of the tissue log is 10 cm.
The Length of the tissue log is 150 cm.
The Width of the tissue log is 2 cm to 10 cm.
The maximum weight of the tissue log is 3 kg.
But the width and weight may vary job to job depending upon the number of sheets in the job.
The width of tissue log and number of sheets may vary job to job.
The pictures and video clip of the machine when a human is doing the same job as the robot would have to, is attached.
We have selected UR family robot of Universal Robots for our current application.
Now we are required an end effect-or that is connected to UR family robots and do the job as shown in the video (picking up the log, rotating the log through 90o and then place the log on to a conveyor belt)
Please suggest an end effect-or and also confirm its compatibility with UR robots.
Also please suggest that our current application can be handled with single robot and single end effect or or we have to move to two robots with two end effect-or.
We are selecting two UR5 Universal Robots and 2 Robotiq 2-FINGER 140 grippers for this application, and we need the advice and comment of the experts at DOF community to finalize our selection. Will Vision or camera be required.
