Unibap shows the potential of jigless mounting
Within the project “Perfect View”, Unibap in cooperation with Robotdalen and Schunk Intec AB has produced a movie that shows the potential of jigless mounting. The movie shows how Unibap’s Intelligent Vision System 70 (IVS-70) is used to control an industrial robot in a typical workflow. In this example, the robot’s mission is to put two metal plates together for welding.
– IVS-70 can handle the robot control using assembly instructions that we have specified in a CAD design model. This is accomplished without any preprograming of the robot, says Lars Asplund, CSO at Unibap.
The programming part of an automation job is removed by translating the work the designer has done in the CAD model into instructions to the skill module of IVS-70. The information in the CAD software is also used by IVS-70 to automatically identify the relevant parts included in the automation task.
The IVS-70 consists of a stereo camera and a high-performance computer that analyses images in a similar way that the human brain is processing visual impressions – an artificial vision centre.
– Unibap’s technology gives robots the ability to see and make decisions. With this movie, we want to showcase the possibilities, especially for small and medium-sized companies. Using our technology, they can utilize robots in a simpler and more cost-effective way, says Lars Asplund.
