Motion Precision Tool Suite top features
Quick and Predictable
Accurate robots are easier to integrate and deploy which speeds up the installation and makes the process more predictable.
Accuracy is important when creating paths or sharing position information with other systems
Robot utilization in manufacturing processes
In order to meet the needs of future production, it is essential to have manufacturing equipment that is both cost-effective and flexible.
The answer lies in utilizing highly accurate robots as multi-process machines.
Increase Operational Reliability in complex robotlines and applications
Operational reliability is essential in complex automated production, it minimizes downtime and enables continuous production.
While industrial robots are renowned for their reliability, it is important to recognize that they are not immune to wear and incidents.
Increase productivity by minimizing downtime after repair or robot exchange by automatically adapting calibration parameters to the updated robot mechanics, instead of manual modification of the robot programs
System Accuracy as foundation
The affordability of robots, in contrast to specialized machines, presents a strong motivation for processes that require a flexible and extensive workspace. However, the overall accuracy of the robot system, which includes positioners and linear tracks, is commonly impeded by the mechanical structure and its lack of stiffness, thus acting as a significant constraint.
To utilize robots for cost-effective and flexible production, even for small batch sizes, it is critical to attain the required level of accuracy.
Identifying and compensating for mechanical imperfections in the system, and elasticities throughout the robot structure is crucial.
A true digital twin
Robot accuracy closes the bridge between the real and the digital world. Modern tools give great possibilities to design and test robot cells digitally, typically using a digital representation of a nominal robot.
For commissioning on the real setup to work smoothly, the real robot should behave like its twin, which is only the case if the robot is accurate.
With accurate robots, process programming results in generally applicable programs, which can be used on various robot individuals and cells without major touch up.
Inline Robot recovery
Despite regular robot maintenance, it is hard to detect problems before they occur and cause more costly production failures. By integrating robot diagnostics in the production cell, robot component issues can be detected before they affect the process performance.
Issues requiring service or repair risk modifying the robot motion, leading to time-consuming program adaptations. With Cognibotics robot recovery tool Flexclamp, the deviations are identified and automatically mitigated. Built-in reliability for consistent high-quality production.
modeling as core
Articulated robots are typically inaccurate due to mechanical imperfections combined with a structure where small errors add up, and a control system using a very simplified model of a robot as default.
The unique competence of Cognibotics lies in the ability to create superior mathematical models to describe the imperfections and deflections in robot mechanics.
Those models are a much better representation of the real robot and are usable within the real-time cycles of a robot controller.
Robot Calibration as Enabler
To initiate and maintain the connection between digital representation and the physical world, the robot, and additional servo-controlled axes must be calibrated. Cognibotics calibration package includes equipment and software to efficiently measure and identify robot parameters to capture characteristics of physical robot individuals.
- Cost efficient manufacturing
- Process path accuracy
- Faster commissioning
- Quick adaptation to new products
- Increased OEE
- Improved predictability
Accuracy improvements up to 10x compared to nominal.
