HANDS UP IF YOU KNOW ONE ROBOT ARM FROM ANOTHER By Andrew Armstrong, UK Sales & Marketing Manager at FANUC UK What determines the choice of palletising robot to handle product X at point Y on the line? With a choice of 20+ FANUC robots arms all capable of performing palletising tasks, Andrew Armstrong, UK Sales and Marketing Manager at FANUC UK picks out some of the main criteria that factories should consider in order to specify the best robot arm for the job.
a.) Cycle time versus speed Most robots can be programmed to move extremely quickly - up to around 4000mm/second, but they will need to ramp up to this top speed, and then slow down from it. By using FANUC Roboguide robot simulation package the system integrator can check to see if the cycle-time is achievable and in turn this can aid robot selection. FANUC Roboguide will aid the programmer in developing a robot path program which can reduce unnecessary overheating and wear and tear on the robot whilst achieving required cycle-time.
b.) Payload A key element in productivity calculations will be the payload of the chosen robot arm, and how closely the integrator feels it is wise to approach the rated weight. For example, in a palletising pick-and-place application, a magnetic end effector may be able to lift, say, 20 cans at a time. But choosing a smaller number may make
more sense. In fact, it can form a substantial proportion of that payload. A 4-axis palletising robot may be able to lift 180kg, but the gripper on a palletising robot may contribute around 50kg of that load. In selecting a payload range, the customer will also be estimating future needs and how much of a margin to leave in order to accommodate any likely change in the robot’s role.
c.) Cost and returnon investment When a robot supplier or integrator visits a prospective customer, the first task is to determine whether the proposed process is viable at all. The next step is to determine what measurables the customer will use to calculate their ROI, whether it be resource, health and safety, production volumes or quality etc. It is because the working life of the robot is at the core of any ROI calculation that decisions about cycle time, payload and overall utilisation are of such importance. In Germany, for example, it is quite common to buy an additional robot cell rather than running a single cell at maximum utilisation, it also provides a level of redundancy to protect production.
d.) Reach If you are fortunate enough to be designing a new packaging line, then there should be few challenges in maximising efficiency and performance in the palletising robot. But if the line already exists, you are going to have to conform to it. You may have to perform some ‘surgery’ on the line, but you would normally try to minimise this.
One important element in the calculations around a palletising installation will be the reach of the robot. Making changes to the line to reduce the robot envelope may improve productivity and therefore make sense in terms of total cost. It may also mean that a lower-specification robot is needed.
e.) Number of axes Along with issues such as hygiene ratings (which are not normally significant at endof-line – unless of course it’s a cleanroom manufacturing environment), the number of axes of movement may be more important in pick-and-place applications. But there are reasons why the choice between a 4-axis and 6-axis robot may come up more often in palletising. In FANUC’s experience, a 6-axis robot may be needed in applications which would otherwise suit four axes because of unavoidable obstacles in the factory which the arm has to clear or negotiate. Finally, customers should push their robot suppliers to ensure that what is on offer is the best solution for that particular application. In this situation, even if you do not know all the answers, knowing which questions to ask your supplier can be very helpful.
