FFC/FPCs can be tricky to assemble. Too much force can damage the connectors. Flexiv's robot arms use vision and force guidance to assemble FFC/FPC connectors with precision. Various connectors can be identified, localized and tracked using Flexiv’s NOEMA vision system. Upon grasping the connector, Flexiv’s proprietary force-guided insertion can be used to ensure safe and secure assembly of the header. With force sensing resolution as low as 0.03N, Flexiv’s robot can adapt to even the most subtle changes, ensuring that cables are assembled consistently within the required cycle times.

Flexiv’s adaptive robots uses force control arms to achieve human-like insertion motion, which provides compliance and stiffness in different directions. Using these capabilities, Flexiv’s robot is actively working with Tier 1 automotive suppliers to automate dashboard assembly processes. Multiple robot arms in the assembly station work seamlessly together to locate various injection molded components, pick them up and collaboratively them. NOEMA vision system from Flexiv locates parts with pinpoint accuracy, enabling robots to pick parts up preciously and accurately from a bin, conveyor, or moving AMR. Executing a force-guided insertion during assembly, Flexiv's adaptive robots achieve assembly accuracy of +/- 0.01 mm with force sensing seamlessly integrated into the control architecture. When assembling large parts prone to deflection, multiple robots can collaboratively work together using force control to effectively compensate for any deflection.

Adapt to position errors

Overcome inherent limited position accuracy from AMR

Machine tending is one of the most popular application for robots. Frequently, the need arises to tend to multiple machines simultaneously. However, due to machines not operating in sync, robots are often installed on AMRs, allowing them to navigate and tend to machines once their tasks are finished. For successful loading and unloading, accurate docking capabilities in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are crucial. Achieving high accuracy, however, presents challenges in practice due to stack up of position errors from both the AMR and the machine. To solve this challenge for a PCB manufacturer, Flexiv integrated its robot arm onto an AMR and employed real-time force guidance to adapt to errors. This innovation empowered the robot fleet to achieve dependable and secure loading and unloading operations.
