Alicona Cobot for disk measurement
Avoid sharp edges on turbine disks
In the age of Industry 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing, flexible production strategies require intelligent interaction between humans and robots. Learn in the following how “Cobots”(collaborative robots) combining robots with optical metrology help to facilitate manufacturing processes. Based on the technology of Focus-Variation we present flexible quality assurance for your production.
This cobot allows the quality assurance of round, heavy components with a weight up to 120kg, like turbine disks, saw blades or grinding wheels. The handling of the new robot measuring system is especially easy and user friendly. The operator conveniently manipulates the robot arm with attached measuring sensor to the desired surface position. Two handles with integrated joystick are mounted on the sensor, so the robot is easy to move. By means of an app, a smartphone displays the live view for manual, precise positioning and measurement. The control and measurement is fully automated. At the end the user receives a measurement report with OK and NOT OK statements
