pi4_robotics sees new product concept confirmed at Fakuma and Motek 2014.

For the first time, a turnkey production line was presented with partners EHLEBRACHT and IMPACT COATINGS.

Time taken to start-up on the Fakuma fair stand amounted to only one working day.

Demanding 3-dimensional sample demonstration parts were produced directly on the Fakuma fair stand in an injection mould from EHLEBRACHT on an Engel injection moulding machine and passed to a workerbot3 robot from pi4 equipped with integrated optical part position and orientation recognition. The robot laid the demonstration parts in the PlastiCoater 200 PVD coating equipment from Impact Coatings, where the injection mouldings received a homogenous thin chrome coating. The workerbot3 then took the coated parts, checked the optical quality with an inspectoid-M1 inspection system from pi4 and laid down the inspected parts in a tray system.
