What’s better than pick-and-place with cobots?
How about pick-MEASURE-RECORD-and-place?
The NSR-PG precision gripper/caliper lets you use a collaborative robot to PICK small parts, MEASURE them, RECORD the data to a PC, and decide where to PLACE each part based on the data.
For inspection: automate pass/fail sorting or arrange parts by size of a feature.
For machine tending: monitor data trends and trigger an operator alert should a process drift.
Using a cobot to pick-measure-record-and-place frees human workers from tedious, repetitive manual measurements and data entry tasks. It increases repeatability, and reduces errors.
