Duration: 1 hour
In this joint webinar, engineers from Carr Lane Manufacturing and ROEMHELD North America will take an in-depth look at designing fixtures for automation and the requirements needed to do so effectively.
- Pre-Clamping Techniques
- Part Sensing
- Clamping and Position Monitoring
When designing a fixture for automation, the first step is to locate your part. This is a critical step as you need to know where your part is in 3D space in order to accurately perform desired operations. If a workpiece is not properly loaded several issues can result. This may also cause your automated production line to go down, which could have a significant financial impact. Automating fixture loading requires not only feedback of the part position but also feedback of the clamp position. Increase throughput and decrease costs knowing the position of the clamp prevents your robot from crashing into the clamp during change-over.
