Faude’s Bin Picking System Utilizes Lightweight Robot

Faude Group in Gärtringen, near Stuttgart utilizes advanced technological knowledge to build an innovative ‘bin picking’ system, which uses a lightweight six-axis robot manufactured by Universal Robots and a two-dimensional vision sensor from Leuze electronic.

Bin Picking System

The 18kg robot can place components of weight up to 5kg in the correct orientation within a working radius of 850mm and a repeatability of ± 0.1 mm. The robot system called ‘FIPS’ from Faude with stands for excellence in Flexibility, Intuitiveness, Price and Safety. The company claims that it can be set up and run within a few hours.

The robot present in Faude’s bin picking system is capable of automatically detecting the components. The bin picking system has their "Flexvision" image processing system incorporated with Leuze electronic’s LPS 36 (Line Profile Sensor), which provides two-dimensional slices of the tray that is converted to three-dimension by the vision system.

The system, equipped with the lightweight robot and sensor, requires only simple installation and configuration. The key competitive advantage is that the robot is cost- effective.
