With SHAFTS, we demonstrate to shaft and axle manufacturers that bin picking cells are today reliable and that the installation time is limited (< one week). We do this by organizing local events for interested customers where we demonstrate 24/7 running bin-picking cells.
Pickit novel robotic gripper initially developed for forge billets (steel cylinders) was expanded and successfully validated for random bin picking of shafts. Using a passive joint in combination with compliance, this gripper can reach shafts deep in a bin regardless of their orientation. This smart mechanical design is very robust since the passive compliance self-adapts to the pose of the parts. Additionally, this extra passive degree of freedom is leveraged to optimise the robot motion improving the robot reach and cycle time. A set of different magnets and suction cup modules allows it to cover a wide range of shafts and axles.
