Motoman Robot Handling, Assembling, and Packing

Motoman UP50-35 robot unloads a set of LH and RH parts from a four-station positioner, manipulates parts for bolt insertion, places parts into separate dunnage baskets, and adds slip sheets, as required.Automotive Brake Assemblies

System achieves required 30-second cycle time (excluding tier sheet handling). Robot solution improves safety and part quality, while maximizing system throughput by eliminating downtime.

Fixtures/Tooling Details

Motoman Robotics provided custom end-of-arm tooling and part locating fixtures. Dual-station mechanical gripper assembly grasps individual LH and RH parts using two three-jaw grippers. Gripper grasps parts using inside diameter. Two vacuum gripper cups handle individual slip sheets. Motoman Robotics provided four part locating fixtures. Each fixture accommodates one LH and one RH part in dedicated positions. An elevated rest pad with notched base allows the robot arm and gripper access below part level. Three rest pads and one locating pin per part locate parts accurately for the bolt insertion operation.
