Infeed conveyor bucket loading system - http://www.fanucrobotics.com/ppp

In this application engineered by Remtec Corporation, a FANUC 4-axis M-3iA Robot picks randomized pouches of candy and placing them into buckets on a continuous cartoner infeed conveyor.  

The design rate for the application is 90 pouches/minute.
The system is designed to operate in three modes:

• Picks semi-random pouches straight from the pouching operation.

• Picks pouches from a hopper-fed buffer conveyor with a pouch flattener

• Combined mode -- either direct or hopper-fed


The application uses Fanuc Robotics's iRVision with visual line tracking to locate the pouches to be picked. In addition, the cartoner conveyor is being tracked by a separate encoder and fed to the robot controller, making this a dual-tracking application.




iRvision is also used to reject crushed and overlapping pouches, which are simply recirculated to the hopper and later flattened and reintroduced via a buffer conveyor.




The black belt on the pick conveyor allows iRVision to be configured so that white, silver metallic, and even clear pouches can be picked with one Vision Process.
