Case Studies / Assembly / Automated Screwdriving with Cobot


Application

Screwdriving tool on collaborative robot safely feeds and drives screws

Challenge

Safely employ an automated screwdriving application in a collaborative environment.

Solution

1) Operator places workpiece. Initiates robot cycle.

2) Robot equipped with special tool feeds and drives screws.

3) Operator unloads finished part. Reloads screws as needed.
 

Benefits

Automating the screwdriving part of the process ensures fast and consistent application, reduces operator time at station, and overall cycle times. Additional robot may be employed to place and remove workpieces for total automation. 

The power-force limiting features of the HC10DT robot and CSX tool from Stoger Automation enable humans to safely work in close proximity.
