Initially the optical parts recognition by the ACSYS OPR was carried out. The workpieces were detected with regard to their position and rotational angle. Then they were automatically processed with the laser. After the entire tray has been marked, it is automatically moved to the unloading lift station, and the system continues with the processing of the next tray.
Automation with OPR – Optical Parts Recognition
In this case, the OPR in connection with a fully automated mechanical system solution is complemented with a company in-house database connection. When a new job order for the machine is received, the parameters and marking data for the machine are read and fed into the machine via barcode scanner.
The universal trays do not have to be changed for different workpieces. The workpieces are loosely placed in the trays and automatically recognized by the OPR.
The PIRANHA® Multishift with Automatic Pallet Handling
The high-strength, heat-stable and vibration-free granite table of the PIRANHA Multishift provides the necessary precision of the laser system and meets the highest standards of repeatability in the micromachining.
The laser system is equipped with a reinforced base frame that compensates the burden of the lateral lift stations.
OPR – Pallet handling
The optical parts recognition enables the fully automated processing of non-palletized loose parts. The software recognizes the position and rotational angle of the workpieces and processes them in the previously trained location.
Top image: The prepositioned watch parts in the tray are detected by the camera. The software recognizes the position and rotational angle of the parts. The software marks / engraves the workpieces in the previously trained location.
LAS – Live Adjust System
The workpiece in the machine is shown as a “live” image on the laser system’s monitor using a high-resolution camera. The operator can place layouts right at the workpiece that is to be machined.
The camera is part of the OPR system.
