Force-guided robotic operations
Laser-guided robotic operations
FRS also feeds adaptive robot control with laser-based distance measurements. One application covers the automated pickup of spools without the support of a camera. By mounting laser sensors on the robot end effector, ‘on-the-fly’ sensing continuously adapts the robot motion to ensure very precise manipulation of the object. FRS laser-guided technology services allow fast and robust robot control with dynamic accuracy within a tenth of a millimeter.
The robotic manipulation of spools is just one example. There are numerous operations out there that could benefit from laser-guided robotic automation solutions from FRS. A key advantage of FRS solutions is that these are robot vendor independent.
Studies & Consultancy
Involve FRS when looking into developing the automation of a specific application. Have FRS robot specialists execute engineering studies or provide consultancy services in support of your project. One project covered the automated removal of the thin coating of rectangular cheese blocks using a planing tool. With laser sensors mounted on the robot end effector, ‘on-the-fly’ sensing and cheese coating removal occur simultaneously during continuously adapted robot motion. FRS technology services have led to increased productivity and reduced cheese waste, thanks to fast and robust robot control with a dynamic accuracy within a tenth of a millimeter.
