Tactile sensor - igm gas nozzle searching

This tactile sensor is used to determine the workpiece position or its components and individual parts by gauging the surface of the workpiece. In each case, the successional part of the program is shifted according to determined deviations.

The control cabinet for igm robots

The RCE control system is based on a standard PC with current processor technology. The complete control system for the six robot axes and up to ten external NC axes is included in a compact control cabinet connected to the robot, the teach pendant, the operating cassette, the external axes, and the power source by cables, pluggable on both sides. The RCE system includes fully digital servos controlled through EtherCAT.

The igm laser sensor (iLS) is programmed via teach pendant directly - without an additional PC.

The igm laser sensor is programmed directly from the robot teach pendant, without the need of an additional computer or external interface.
Integrating the user interface into the teach pendant creates a more stream line workflow. All functionality of iLS are supported by the igm offline programming system IOPS.

Work piece periphery

The work piece manipulator holds, positions and moves the work pieces. These manipulators are external axes to the robot and are fully integrated, coordinated and synchronised in the RCE control system.

These external axes are frequently included in the welding steps as a synchronised movement combining with the robot arm to establish a continuous weld path. Using the teach pendant, they are programmed together with the robot axes.
