Robotic control islands for automatic hardness control on pins and mechanical parts

Hardness detection of pressed, sheared, drawn or welded sheet metal parts with extraction of geometric or dimensional information

Measure of forces, distances, openings, positions to verify the correct execution of the workings or as preparation for welding and assembly operations

Comparison with the mathematical model for the determination of controlling shares

Applications on robotic islands, on Cartesian axes or on automatic assembly islands

Verification island that allows the non-destructive control of mechanical parts
directly on the production line. It is characterized by an autonomous platform which
integrates an automatic manipulator capable of picking up the piece directly from the line
of production (both on oriented pallets and on sliding belt with recognition
automatic orientation of the piece). The manipulator carries the part to be checked
in the control area where there are one or more measuring instruments (durometers,
profilometers, roughness meters, eddy-current probes, multi-level instruments, roundness meters or any other
other automatic measuring instrument). After checking the manipulator
provides to bring the detail directly into the production flow of the line if the result is
positive. In case of non-compliance, the system takes the part off line for the
subsequent analysis and, if necessary, adjust the parameters
production or the controlled stop of the production process.
