Creating an optimal high-speed robotic picking solution
Since high speed robotic picking systems are now a proven packaging technology, companies are eager to gain instant productivity improvement from this solution. To optimize system throughput, high speed picking generally occurs “on the fly,” allowing the robot to seamlessly move from one pick sequence to another without wasting precious time. Find out more in this White Paper from ABB.
While advancements in robotic technology have allowed the pick and place operation to be performed in 0.5 seconds or less, the true success lies in the selection and interaction of all system components. Early evaluation of the following critical elements will promote project success.
• Formulating an accurate system specification
• Optimizing all elements of the pick-and-place cycle
• Product handling
• Robot selection
System considerations (vision, conveyor tracking, etc.)
