  • GARotics – Green asparagus harvesting robotic system

    Due to lower harvesting costs, there is an increasing trend towards the production of green asparagus. Today harvesting is done by seasonal workers, however, the increasing labour costs and the lack of available labour supply forces farmers to optimize the harvesting process and to introduce harvesting aids. With automated harvesting the availability of labour force would play a less important role and make the harvesting much more flexible and cost efficient. While for the cultivation of green asparagus the degree of automation is quite high, automation of harvesting is still an unsolved challenge. Several approaches for automated machines have been made, but none of the known automated harvesters can guarantee a picking rate and quality like manual labour. This is mainly because of the d...

It produces six electrical harness assemblies per minute. Some portions of the process are considered sensitive intellectual property and are not shown in this video. An LR Mate 200iD robot picks new wire from the decoiler, clamps it into place in a winding head, and the machine winds the wire to the appropriate length as selected by the operator through the HMI. Once the appropriate length is coiled, the wire cutters snip the wire, and the LR Mate handles the end of the wire back into a clamp within the winding head so that the coil doesn’t unravel. One LR Mate is responsible for two turntables that include six coil winding heads. After the coils are wrapped in plastic, they are moved to the FANUC M-10iA robot. The FANUC M-10iA robot picks a coil and presents it to a heater. As previously mentioned, the system handles six different lengths of wire assemblies. Therefore each pallet needs to be automatically adjusted to fit the proper coil size. To do this, a height sensor relays information to a servo, which sets the appropriate pallet height for each individual coil. The pallets of coil move down a conveyor to two LR Mate 200iDs, designated for deploying inner and outer wire ends. The wire ends will eventually be cut to length, stripped of insulation, straightened, and inserted into connectors. The coils then move to an inspection station. The vision system checks the wires for length, straightness, and shape. The coil is also checked for continuity before being placed on the finished conveyor. Finished windings travel down the conveyor to the end of the system process where an LR Mate picks finished windings and places them on a conveyor out of the system. Rejected windings are place on a separate reject chute; Coils could be rejected if they lack continuity.

The platform is comparable in height to a human, but weighs much less because of its lightweight architecture and novel leg configuration. The inclusion of the compliant element showed immense improvements in the stability and robustness of walking gaits on the prototype, allowing the robot to remain stable during locomotion without any inertial feedback control. The platform was also able to traverse shallow ramps and steps and portray a certain level of emotion through the dynamic motions it performs. NABiRoS was able to achieve walking speeds of up to 0.75km/h (0.21m/s) using a simple pre-processed ZMP based gait and a positioning accuracy of +/- 0.04m with a preprocessed quasi-static algorithm. Strategies for changing the walking direction and traversing uneven terrain are currently being investigated.

Using a total of six robots from FANUC’s diverse robotics product range, combined with over 20 years of experience and expertise, RND was able to accomplish producing approximately 15 parts every 30 seconds. The overall system consists of two phases: In the first phase – the assembly process – 11 total stations and 4 FANUC robots are used. First, two FANUC M-1iA Delta-style robots use FANUC iRVision to locate and pick parts from feeders. FANUC iRVision allows for future product changes via a flex feeder as opposed to a hard tooled bowl feeder. The parts are inspected using a laser to check their length, then transported through the process in boats. Parts are then mechanically coupled using a hydraulic forming head. Dual machine vision cameras inspect the ends of the parts after forming. A FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot then moves the boats to deposition stations, where paste is deposited on rotating parts, and then checked by vision. The parts are then heated in order to set the paste. A FANUC M-10iA robot picks the boat of parts from the conveyor, deposits the boat itself onto a return conveyor, and then delivers the parts to a rack. Using vision, the robot determines the location of the racks, and then builds a new layer. Phase two of the process – the inspection and packaging phase – consists of one FANUC LR Mate and one FANUC M-10iA robot. Parts are picked from the racks by the FANUC M-10iA robot and delivered to boats. 2D matrix readers identify each boat uniquely. The parts are then thermally tested. After thermal testing the parts enter the laser marking station. Finally, once the parts are marked, they emerge and are bulk packed into boxes on a conveyor by a FANUC LR Mate 200iD/7L long arm robot. Through the use of custom automation from RND Automation & Engineering, this system delivers maximum part quality and repeatability with minimum scrap and rejected parts.

Multi-line palletizing robots: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/palletizing-robots.aspx FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Sen-Pack developed this case palletizing system, using three FANUC palletizing robots to service nine production lines. Each FANUC M-410iC/185 palletizing robot and its associated conveyors comprise mini-cells, operating independently within the larger overall cell. Each robot has a tool attached that utilizes the latest in vacuum and servo-pneumatic technology picking one, two, or three cases at a time. The infeed conveyors determine how many cases to meter into the pick area. Once in the pick area, a compression bar moves the cases over to justify them against a fixed guide rail where they are measured. If the cases are within acceptable limits they are placed next in the que with coordinates for the robot pick location. As the FANUC M-410iC/185 robot moves to this position, its end-of-arm tool articulates into place. The robot places cases on the pallet load in one, two, or three place movements. If any cases are dropped during transfer, that infeed is disabled, the remaining cases are placed on top of the load, and automatic palletizing of the other two conveyor sections resumes. A similar process occurs to pick and place slip sheets. Completed loads are taken away and pallets replenished by a transfer car system. Like a symphony, each piece plays its part in concert with the others. Separating the mini-cells from each other was crucial in maximizing uptime for the system, and a tough obstacle to overcome. The completed system encompasses safety fencing that wraps the entire perimeter of the machine as well as fencing and light curtains that separate the mini-cells. However, fencing and light curtains alone would not have satisfied the level of safety required to allow an operator to access a mini-cell of an adjacent operating mini-cell. Therefore a key component in the safety aspect of this custom product offering is FANUC’s Dual-Check Safety feature. FANUC DCS allows each robot to operate at full speed so long as it remains within its programmed limits. Minimizing the system’s footprint was also critical during system development. Sen-Pack's ingenuity yielded the needed operator access and efficiency without wasting precious floor space. The slip sheet trolley delivery system was conceptualized to keep it out of the way of operator travel aisles. Conventional pallet delivery and take away systems wouldn't allow access, so a transfer car system is utilized. From its rugged conveyor framework to its stout robot base construction, from its transfer cars to its durable end-of-arm tooling; this system is built to last. Through superior robotic safety, technology, and reliability married to robust and proven automation, Sen-Pack’s robotic palletizing systems are truly one of a kind.

Beverage decasing: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/food-grade-robots.aspx FANUC America Authorized System Integrator StrongPoint Automation developed this automated beverage decasing system to utilize six FANUC M-710iC/50H robots to remove cases of beverage bottles from a pallet and place them onto a conveyor. The system process starts as each of the six lines is loaded by a forklift with six pallets of different-flavored beverage bottles – this particular industry called for glass bottles with beer and wine cooler products. Each of the six FANUC robots in the system is synchronized to grab a single case at a time and move all cases onto the mainline at the same time. Six different-flavored cases enter the system one after the other as the FANUC robots unload them. The purpose for this lies in a downstream system that takes bottles from the cases and makes mixed packs. A FANUC iRVision-equipped camera is mounted to the head of each of the six FANUC robots, allowing the robots to see the case pattern before starting. Once each FANUC robot knows the pattern, they begin to depalletize using the correct pattern. Three lasers are also mounted on each robot in order to triangulate a rotation position of the case so that the robot head rotates correctly to pick each case. Additionally, each robot head contains pneumatic plates to grip the case as well as vacuum cups to grip the tray for a two-by-twelve format. Once empty, the pallets are transferred to a pallet stacker to be stacked and taken away by a forklift. This fully automated system was previously a manual process that was very labor intensive, involving repetitive, heavy lifting. Now this robotic system can handle 24 packs as well as two-by-twelve packs in a tray. Each FANUC robot can handle approximately five cases per minute, for a total throughput of 30 cases per minute and over 10,000 cases in one shift between the six FANUC robots.

Due to lower harvesting costs, there is an increasing trend towards the production of green asparagus. Today harvesting is done by seasonal workers, however, the increasing labour costs and the lack of available labour supply forces farmers to optimize the harvesting process and to introduce harvesting aids. With automated harvesting the availability of labour force would play a less important role and make the harvesting much more flexible and cost efficient. While for the cultivation of green asparagus the degree of automation is quite high, automation of harvesting is still an unsolved challenge. Several approaches for automated machines have been made, but none of the known automated harvesters can guarantee a picking rate and quality like manual labour. This is mainly because of the difficulty and the complexity of the asparagus detection. GARotics improves the automatic harvesting systems for green asparagus by enhancing the quality of the asparagus detection and by increasing the detection rate as well as the harvesting rate. Furthermore, GARotics presents a new gripping mechanism with three robotic arms. In addition, data are collected to support the yield forecast and planning of the next harvest run. The video describes the concept of the experiment, the technology used and shows the prototype harvesting green asparagus on a test field. GARotics is a joint project of Strauss Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH, Universität Bremen and C.Write & Son Ltd.
