The system starts with bulk loading and distancing the parts on an orientation belt, operating irrespective of the shape of the part being handled. On the orientation belt a robot guided by a vision system is able to turn the parts over so they are all in the correct position for collection. A second robot can collect them from the correct side, orientate them exactly with a second, high-precision vision system, and load them accurately. The system enables a production change by simply clicking the symbol for the required part on the touchscreen, without having to change any mechanical settings.
