Overview

The Picking & Sorting Conveyor System was developed for picking products from the main assembly line and to sort them through the various conveyors that form different assembly lines using robots for this purpose.
The main assembly line holds an integrated base adapted to the product which allows the distinction of the model and its distribution to the corresponding conveyor.
This automatic station may be equipped with a vision system for quality control and automatic labeling system.

Architecture

This equipment consists of one or more robotic cells and several connecting conveyors.
The robots pick the products from the main assembly line conveyor and place them in the corresponding assembly line of the product being manufactured.

The station control is performed through a console. The available options are:
– the selection of the model outlet conveyor depending on the type of product being produced,
– the output of the product through the general conveyor to perform quality inspection,
– placing the station in manual mode and checking for quality control.

In order to guarantee high levels of protection, the robots are isolated in an acrylic station with access through a security door.

Main Applications

The Picking & Sorting Conveyor System was developed to meet the high standards of the automotive industry, which makes it also suitable for other industries as well. It can be customized for various types of products that require sorting, distribution and automatic inspection of products and/or packaging.
