Robot Control for the flexible handling of aluminium parts
The here realized application is a processing centre for aluminium parts.These parts are to
be equipped with chamfers and nutes. Further on, some of the parts are to be milled plainly
At first, the part to be processed will be placed on a turning-table, then automatically
levelled in both horizontal directions. After this, it will be fixed vertically via a cylinder with
The various procedures will be carried out with up to 6 tools which will be obtained via an
integrated tool-changer. To enable flexible processing at a high number of various work
pieces - the biggest size has the outside measurements 1.500 x 1.500 x 400 mm -, a
FANUC-bend-arm-robotwith2.50m processing radius is installed/used.
Operating is to be carried out via a Siemens-Operator-Panel (OP27) which is coupled via a
PLC (SiemensS7-300) with the robot.
Aparamenter set will be filed for each working piece in a data base which may be opened
via the article number. This enables very short set-uptimes.
