Add-ons and fixtures can be a great way to expand the capabilities of your dispensing robot system. Fisnar offers a variety of robotic accessories to improve efficiency with things like material or tip changes.
The height sensor automatically adjusts the dispense tip height in the event of any variation of the height of workpiece being dispensed upon. Setup and programming of the height sensor is carried out by following a user friendly step-by-step procedure preinstalled onto the robot software.
By comparing the actual workpiece height against the original stored datum value in the robot program, any deviation found in the workpiece height results in the Z-axis coordinate data being automatically offset accordingly. Multiple height checks can be made within one robot program in the event of multiple workpieces being processed or a single workpiece with differing heights.
The Auxiliary rotation module allows an additional axis to be quickly and easily mounted onto a F4000 ADVANCE 3-Axis robot. The device can be mounted in two different ways:
Horizontal Mounting: When 4-Axis (R) rotation is required, but is not possible due to the size or weight of the dispense equipment that is normally attached to the robot Z-Axis that would typically rotate on a conventional 4-Axis robot. This configuration set-up results in the workpiece rotating instead, achieving the same end dispense result. Horizontal mounting also allows the CCD vision system to be used in application processes requiring 4-axis motion.
Vertical Mounting: In applications that require dispensing onto multiple planes on a single workpiece.
Dispensing onto cylindrical components can be made easy with the device mounted in either a horizontal or vertical position depending on the specific application process
The I/O Expansion module increases the number of inputs and outputs while simplifying connection of external devices (e.g. sensors) to the robot.
The I/O expansion module increases the number of robot inputs to 16 channels and outputs to 20 channels. Two different models (NPN or PNP) are available depending on the I/O signal type of the
external devices. The use of this device also prevents any damage caused to the PCB’s inside the robot due to incorrect wiring or failure of the external device.
The remote operation box allows users to operate the robot from a safe distance or in instances when the robot is housed within a safety enclosure.
A version is also available with a safety relay (Category 3, PL d) incorporated directly inside allowing a light curtain or safety switch to be easily connected to the control box. This eliminates the need for additional cost for an unnecessary electrical control panel to be fitted.
