Pick and Place Robots

Goods to Person Robotics

Increase productivity with pick and place robots

High-speed pick and place robots take product from one location to another with pinpoint accuracy. Human pick and place applications can require repetitive motion over a long duration resulting in possible ergonomic issues. High-speed pick and place robots can provide increased efficiency as well as decreased production costs and ergonomic issues.

How Pick and Place Robots work:

High-speed pick and place robots can be mounted on a stand to allow the robots to access their entire working envelope. Product will enter the robotic work envelope after its orientation has been identified by an upstream vision system. Using a custom end of arm tool, the product will be picked and placed by the robot at the desired location. Product can pass/fail inspection based on customer defined specifications for length, straightness, shape, etc.

Benefits of Pick and Place Robots:

  • Automates to processes that involve fast-moving conveyor
  • Provides extremely high-speed output
  • Eliminates fixtures therefore reducing cost
  • 2D vision is flexible and easy to adapt
  • Improved productivity and product quality

Applications for Pick and Place Robots:

Bastian Solutions utilizes a creative concept and design process to ensure we implement the most appropriate tool for your application. Common applications include:

  • Fast Assembly – robots can pick parts from incoming conveyor and assemble them onto work pieces carried by an outgoing conveyor with high precision.
  • Inspection and Quality Control – robot visually inspects and picks out defective products moving on a fast conveyor.
  • Fast Packaging – vision spots products spread out on moving conveyor and then the robot transfers them into packaging containers at high speed.
  • Fast Sortation - robot instantaneously picks and separates different types of parts passing through its vision domain.
