  13. 13. Adept’s Focus for Flexible Feeding<br />Feeder - Vision - Robot Coordination<br />“The vision-guided robot is the key element in this type of system. It’s principal function is the acquisition, orientation, and placement of parts to a target matrix or assembly fixture.”<br />- Bud Ross, RPM Flex Feeders<br />
  14. 14. Why Adept for Part Feeding Applications?<br />High-throughput: Seamless integration of AnyFeeder, Robots, and ACE software for Vision-guided flexible feeding solution<br />Flexibility: Feed bulk parts of various shapes, colors, textures, and materials with fast product changeovers<br />Repeatability: Part feeding jobs demand high consistency and Adept offers portfolio of robots with high repeatability<br />Precision: Cost of poor quality is high and robots need to work with high accuracy; Adept portfolio is designed for high precision jobs<br />Foot print efficiency: Adept system provides a high foot print efficiency maximizing the work envelope<br />Safety: Part feeding jobs can be hazardous. Adept adheres to all the safety regulations to ensure the safety of operators<br />
  15. 15. Flexible Feeding Components<br />
  16. 16. Expectation vs. Reality<br />“Flexible parts feeding is a lot like education spending. Most folks want only the best schools and the best teachers for their children. But, when it comes time to pay the piper, the enthusiasm quickly evaporates.”<br />- John Sprovieri, <br />Senior Editor, Assembly Magazine<br />
  17. 17. Major Components<br />Method of presenting parts (AnyFeeder)<br />Method to locate and recognize parts (Vision)<br />Method of picking and placing parts (Robot)<br />Method of programming the feeding solution (Software)<br />+<br />+<br />+<br />ACE AdeptSight<br />Adept AnyFeed<br />Adept Robot<br />Application Software<br />

  20. 20. Benefits of Adept AnyFeeder<br />Adept ACE™ software to deploy your applications through a user-friendly interface<br />High flexibility for production runs with high mix of parts and short productions cycles<br />Brushless servo-drives and conveyor-less design feed parts without part jams<br />Integrated backlight option for advanced vision guidance capabilities<br />The feed surface option enables feeding parts with different sizes, colors, or shapes<br />Feeds a variety of parts with no fixturingrequirement<br />
  21. 21. Vision-Guidance Integration<br />AdeptSight™ is intelligent software designed to perform vision guidance and inspection applications through a single interface<br />Single point of control for vision-guidance applications<br />Wizard-based user-friendly interface to calibrate and teach the robots<br />Supports “vision-on-the-fly” <br />High-speed and high-quality inspection of parts with tight tolerances<br />
  22. 22. Robot Integration<br />The Adept SmartController and ACE software is capable of integrating any of the robots with Adept AnyFeeder:<br />SCARA<br />Cartesian<br />6-Axis<br />Hybrid / Custom<br />
  23. 23. ACE Software Integration<br />Identify, calibrate, teach, and manage AnyFeeder, robot, and vision through a single interface<br />Rapid deployment of applications with multiple robots for high-throughputs, multiple AnyFeeders to handle multiple parts, and multiple cameras for vision-guidance and inspection<br />
  24. 24. PLC Integration<br />ePLC software from Adept enables flexible feeding solution to be integrated with Allen Bradley’s PLC integration<br />Integration enables users to program and manage AnyFeeder and robot through Allen Bradley’s PLC<br />
