Robotic Conveyor Loading Automation Systems
Robotic conveyor loading robots exceed the human limitations of speed, reliability, & strength. For those reasons robotic loading is primarily employed to improve workplace safety, ergonomics, & throughput capability. By design, robotic conveyor loading applications are part to tool based.
Robotic loading applications are performed by a variety of industrial robots including 6 axis articulated arms, scara robots, cartesian coordinate robots (a.k.a. gantry robots), & parallel robots (a.k.a. delta or “picker” robots). Specialized pick and place robots are available that sacrifice accuracy for greater speed to increase throughput. Typical end of arm tooling mechanisms include vacuum cups or pneumatic grippers, and is largely dependent on part size, weight, & surface conditions.
