High-Speed Robot Applications in Packaging, Manufacturing and Assembly

The industrial robot Quattro s650H Adept Technology is a high performance robot with a parallel structure, mainly used in high speed applications in packaging, manufacturing and assembly - the device obtains the speed up to 10m/s and the acceleration up to 150m/s2. 

The Adept Quattro robot features a patented four-arm design, advanced control algorithms and large work envelope, that makes the Adept Quattro an ideal overhead-mount robot for smooth motion and high-throughput applications. 

The main use of robotic applications are packaging, manufacturing, assembly and material handling, especially using vision systems. Some assistive devices and the servo drive controller are integrated into the basic version of the Quattro robot S650. In this way, complex cable connections are reduced. This solution allows a very easy and quick way of integrating the work of the production line. The robot is designed for ceiling mounting - over the workspace. A work envelope is a cylinder with a diameter of 1300 mm and of Z stroke 215/500 mm. Max payload is rated 6.0kg and 2.0kg.

The unique four-arm design is available with a smart controller CX, an image processing system, Adept-Sight (also with the colour-sensing), an Ethernet interface and the digital inputs and outputs. Software Adept Desktop is a part of the standard version of the system. Using this programme, the robot and image processing system can be programmed at the same display.
Temperature sensors are integrated to prevent damages of servo motors. Diagnostic display on a robot enables faster troubleshooting.

    What is Mechatronics?

    Mechatronics definition Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanic systems. It is the science, that exists at the interface among the other five disciplines: mechanics, electronics, informatics, automation, robotics. It is one of the most dynamically developing fields of technology and science. The word 'mechatronics' appeared for the first time in Japan in 1969. mechatronics = mecha nics + elec tronics + computing

    DIY Low Cost 6-Axis Desktop Robot

    Learning how to build a robot is a long way. It is the way by mechanics, electronics and programming. Such a mechatronics project is associated with problems such as stiffness (mechanics), overvoltage (electronics) or bug (software). Of course, if something is wrong, we always say 'it's not a bug, it's a feature', but finally a robot has to start working properly.

    Ascento - The Two-Wheeled Jumping Robot

    All-terrain capabilities are required to extend beyond flat surfaces the application range of wheeled robots. First think is four or six-legged robots which have been well known for years. Nowadays, thanks to more and more perfect gait algorithms, the two-legged (bipedal) robots appears more and more often. ETH Zürich students combine the advantages of wheeled robot and two-legged robot.

    How 6-Axis Industrial Robots Work

    6-axis industrial robots are commonly used in the manufacturing industry due to their flexibility, powerful programming software, payload capacities ranging from 5kg up to 1000kg and accuracy to 0.1mm or better. Here is a basic breakdown of how a standard 6-axis robot works. The way it rotates, how it is programmed, and the different types of tooling and grippers.

    How Automated Parking System Works

    An automated car parking system is a mechatronic system designed to transport and park cars automatically. The first semi-automated parking system was used in Paris, France in 1905 at the Garage Rue de Ponthieu (the car was transported to selected level using an internal elevator and the vehicle was parked by attendants). An automated storage and retrieval system for cars is a solution to cities' parking problems, such as the space wasting in a multi-story parking.

    Smart Home Makes Your Life Easier

    Smart homes are also called intelligent, automated or autonomous houses. Nowadays, you can also automate the flats. Dynamic development of automation technology gives you opportunities that were only seen in sci-fi movies in the past. Soon, probably only your imagination will be the limit. What gives us the smart home system?

    Automatic Sorting of Skittles or M&Ms by Colour

    Do you sort M&Ms or Skittles by colour before eating them?  For example, eat all the yellow ones first, then the red ones, then the blue and so on. Brian Egenriether, an electrical engineer, decided to make a small machine that looked like an appliance, which could perform these tasks automatically. This mechatronics project took him about 5 weekends to make. The use of the machine is very simple: pour Skittles or M&Ms into it, push a button and have candies sorted. Let us look at the construction.
