Loading parts with Motoman Robots

Jan 6, 2014

Motoman robotics is a leader in the robotics industry, as seen with their loading robots. Motoman's loading robots help increase the productivity of manufacturing lines as they can load parts from one conveyor to another. Loading robots take over all of the back breaking work, they also don't need to take breaks or vacations!


Load­ing parts from one area to anoth­er is an impor­tant dur­ing pro­duc­tion, whether that means load­ing the parts from one con­vey­or to anoth­er for fur­ther pro­duc­tion pur­pos­es, mov­ing parts into pack­ag­ing areas, or load­ing a part into a work cell. Motoman Robot­ics, a leader in the robot­ics indus­try, has devel­oped many dif­fer­ent robot mod­els capa­ble of effi­cient­ly load­ing parts for their customers.

Motoman robots load a pletho­ra of dif­fer­ent parts in fac­to­ries world­wide. One Motoman solu­tion for robot­ic part load­ing was devel­oped because a cus­tomer need­ed glass light­ing parts loaded onto racks. The cus­tomer want­ed the Motoman part load­ing robot to achieve a 21 sec­ond cycle time, accord­ing to the Motoman web­site. The sys­tem had to be able to han­dle a vari­ety of glass tubes, includ­ing batch processed runs with two dif­fer­ent part lengths. The robot­ic part loader from Motoman was then expect­ed to pick up 50 tubes at a time and load them into rack sta­tions or onto con­vey­ors, depend­ing on the stage of production.

Of course, being one of the top robot­ics com­pa­nies in the mar­ket­place, Motoman was able to deliv­er a part load­ing robot sys­tem to meet and exceed the customer’s expec­ta­tions. The solu­tion uses a Motoman UP series robot and Motoman con­troller, paired with a vac­u­um grip­per and a three rack sta­tion to accom­mo­date the parts that are being loaded. The sys­tem actu­al­ly achieved a 14 sec­ond cycle time, which was 33 per­cent faster than the cus­tomer required. Over­all the part load­ing robot sys­tem was Motoman was a flex­i­ble han­dling sys­tem that improved the customer’s productivity.
