The objective was to automate feeding of sheets into a UV-Coating machine. The task was previously done by an operator. Due to hundreds of different sheet variants, the system needed to be flexible and adaptive based on changing requirements. VIKASO developed this highly innovative system using principles of Human-Robot collaboration, allowing the operators to adjust every parameter and use the COBOT for sheets upto 3000mm long / 1600mm wide.
A vision system has been integrated to detect sheet position before pick. This increases the positional accuracy during insertion for very large sheets.
The use of a COBOT and meticulous engineering, allows the application to comply with relevant Safety Standards without any external safety devices.
