  • 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.

US marines from 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment test the awesome futuristic new MAARS, MUUT, PD-100, Instant Eye & PGI Phantom military combat robots developed by the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory. The Modular Advanced Armed Robotic System (MAARS) is a robot that is being developed by Qinetiq. A member of the TALON family, it will be the successor to the armed SWORDS robot. It has a different, larger chassis than the SWORDS robot, so has little physically in common with the SWORDS and TALON robots. The Multipurpose Unmanned Tactical Transport (MUTT) robot is a a tethered unmanned vehicle designed to follow human movement, carry supplies and perform a wide range of possible missions for forces on-the-move. General Dynamics Land Systems has developed the Multi-Utility Tactical Transport, or MUTT – a 54-inch wide, five-foot long, 750-pound four-wheeled amphibious unmanned vehicle engineered to help dismounted infantry units. The PD-100 Black Hornet Nano is a military micro unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developed by Prox Dynamics AS of Norway, and in use by the Norwegian and British Army. The unit measures around 10 × 2.5 cm (4 × 1 in) and provides troops on the ground with local situational awareness. They are small enough to fit in one hand and weigh just over half an ounce (16 g, including batteries). The UAV is equipped with a camera, which gives the operator full-motion video and still images. They were developed as part of a £20 million contract for 160 units with Marlborough Communications Ltd. An operator can be trained to operate the Black Hornet in as little as 20 minutes. The air vehicle has three cameras; one looking forward, one looking straight down, and one pointing downward at 45 degrees. A Black Hornet package contains two helicopters, and since a 90-percent charge is reached in 20-25 minutes, the same as its hovering time, when one needs to be recharged the other is ready to fly. Top speed is 11 mph (18 km/h). In October 2014, Prox Dynamics unveiled a version of its PD-100 Black Hornet with night vision capabilities, fitted with both long-wave infrared and day video sensors that can transmit video streams or high-resolution still images via a digital data-link with a 1 mi (1.6 km) range. Over 3,000 Black Hornets had been delivered to date. The other equipment they are testing ranges from unmanned ground and aerial vehicles, new technology in expeditionary medicine, reusable energy and water purifying systems. The Warfighting Labs identifies possible challenges of the future and develops new warfighting concepts and tests new ideas to help develop equipment that meets the challenges of the future operating environment.

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.

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.

Collaborative conveyor system: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/picking-and-packing-robots.aspx For more than 50 years, FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Shuttleworth has been providing customers with innovative automated conveyor systems and integrated product handling solutions. Shuttleworth developed this new, innovative collaborative conveyor system to incorporate a FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot integrated with Rockwell Automation’s SafeZone Mini Safety Area Scanner for high-speed material handling in packaging lines. In developing the system to operate with fenceless technology, the FANUC LR Mate six-axis articulated robot is able to run at 100% speed in normal operating zone. If human intervention is required, the robot will reduce speed and go to zero speed to allow for any correction or inspection needed. A human operator can safely enter the robot’s work zone, inspect and even remove a product from the robot’s gripper if necessary. Once the operator exits the work area, the robot again safely starts back up and continues its operation - No access buttons or reset are required. Shuttleworth’s collaborative systems meet Safety Category 3 PLd as well as all other major requirements necessary for safety performance. In addition to fenceless technology, Shuttleworth equipped the FANUC LR Mate robot in this system with a unique end-of-arm tool developed by Soft Robotics. This Soft Robotics end of arm tooling is able to pick a variety of products in nearly any shape or size firmly and gently without damaging the product, making it an ideal solution for picking packaged products such as primary and secondary food handling. FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Shuttleworth delivers integrated solutions, outstanding service and complete satisfaction to their customers.

FANUC America is proud to present the 2017 System of the Year Award to RND Automation & Engineering for their custom robotic workcell developed for assembly, testing and packaging of thermal insulators. 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.

Palletizing and layer forming dairy products: http://robot.fanucamerica.com/Products/Robots/palletizing-robots.aspx FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Motion Controls Robotics designed and integrated this fully automated layer building, palletizing, and pallet removal system for a dairy product manufacturer. The system features two FANUC M-410iB robots specifically designed for palletizing. The FANUC palletizing robots’ acceleration and high speed keeps the system running smoothly at the desired rate. Additionally, the system features six FANUC M-10iA material handling robots for orienting and moving cases into the build area. Cases coming down an infeed conveyor are scanned sorting them by flavor and assigning them to a preset layer-building robot in the correct build area. Each case is placed based on a programmed orientation to build a complete product layer. There are six layer build areas with two palletizing robots picking finished layers. The FANUC M-410iB palletizing robot’s high speed and flexibility allows for just two robots to place full layers on three pallet locations each. Strategically placed HMIs track the infeed, build, and exit conveyor areas counting the progression of the layers in each of the 6 building stations and informing the manufacturer of system status. When a layer is complete, the product is moved through to the palletizing robot pick area. The manufacturer has a variety of product types and sizes. Different case sizes are directed and sorted into the proper build areas. The material handling robots are equipped with an End of arm tool designed for efficient handling of the case. Once a pallet is complete, it is transferred from the palletizing position on a conveyor to one of the two stretch wrapper stations. The pallet is tightly wrapped to keep contents neatly contained. Upon completion of a pallet, a new pallet request is triggered and the automated pallet dispenser sends a new pallet that is waiting for the next layer- with no delay in the palletizing rate or pattern. The stretch wrapped pallet continues on the journey to cold storage or the shipping area where it is placed for delivery. This robotic application is designed to be a hands-off, end of line solution – fully automated from beginning to end. The dairy product manufacturer has seen a marked reduction in labor issues related to their cold work environment and has plans to add the same system in other locations. FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Motion Controls Robotics is keeping manufacturers competitive with quality robotic solutions.
