Requirements and design specifications
The machine must ensure a high productivity: buffer input to the machine of 150 pcs.
The pieces must move between the various operating stations: the first station performs the measurements on the workpiece; the second station prints the serial and the third one picks up the component and takes it out of the line.
Each station is equipped with a vision system to orient the component in the correct manner according to the operation to be performed (measuring, printing or unloading).
Need to carry out checks on 100% of the pieces: the handling system picks up the component and discards it in case it is non-compliant.
Traceability of all products via serial and correlation with the measurements detected.
High dynamics handling system picking up the piece and putting it on the output conveyor belt in case of conforming product or discarding it in the event of defective product.
Product traceability: ensured by an RFID read inside each station; each complying product is encoded with a serial and uniquely associated with the measurements of resistance detected; all information is saved in a database.
According to Industry 4.0 and IoT, the information in the database can be accessed remotely for production analysis. Also the line operating status is viewable remotely.
Database query within the corporate network for production analysis.
HMI: interface developed ad hoc for application with explanatory synoptic chart of the line.
