Machine Tending with the C-BOT
The C-BOT platform is designed to tend any machine. The “C” shaped part presentation shelves can be accessed while the robot is in operation. Castings, pre-cut blanks and pallet mounted workpieces are easily handled. The C-BOT is portable and can be quickly set up where you need it.
How Does it Work?
Raw stock is placed onto the multi-tiered shelf system either in fixed pallets or against locator’s. The CNC machine and the C-BOT Collaborative Robot Cell are started.
Next, C-BOT’s collaborative robot goes to the first shelf position, grips a raw part, moves to the CNC machine (machine door is open) and loads the raw part. The robot exits the machine (the machine door then closes) and the machining process starts.
The CNC machine completes its cycle and then sends a “service request” signal to C-BOT. C-BOT’s collaborative robot moves to the CNC machine (machine door opens), unloads the completed part and places it back on the shelf, where the raw part was originally picked. A new part is reloaded to the CNC machine and the machining process started.
As the operator removes completed parts and replaces them with new raw parts, he/she acknowledges new parts have been loaded on specific shelf positions on the teach pendant HMI touch screen.
