Free software for vibration feeder boosts robot flexibility

30 September 2020 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Yamaha Motor Europe’s Factory Automation section is giving customers extra power to boost the pick-and-place flexibility and productivity of their SCARA and cartesian robots by providing a free software plugin for the Asyril Asycube intelligent parts feeder.

The software eases integration of Asycube and lets the intelligent feeder take advantage of Yamaha’s RCXiVY2+ high-speed, high-resolution vision system. Any Yamaha SCARA or cartesian robot compatible with the RCX320 or RCX340 controller can now rely on Asycube to quickly sort and orientate bulk components for easier, faster pickup. The Asycube feeder intelligently adjusts vibration frequency, amplitude and platter orientation to position the parts optimally, leveraging advanced 3-axis vibration technology. A standard Ethernet connection simplifies setup and scalability is assured by connecting multiple feeders via a switching hub.

“The plugin software for Asycube easily integrates the Asyril Flexible Feeder with Yamaha’s fast and agile robots and efficient RCXiVY2+ vision system to bring further flexibility and increase productivity,” said Ryosuke Nakamura, branch manager of Yamaha Motor Europe Robotics Division. “Using the free plugin, our customers can quickly put this cutting-edge innovation to work in their factories.”

The Yamaha RCXiVY2+ vision system maximises the advantages of Asycube with features such as non-stop vision that checks the pickup orientation on the fly. This system, developed using know-how gained from high speed surface-mount electronics assembly, increases productivity by up to 20%. Any gripping deviation is automatically corrected, allowing picked parts to be placed or assembled directly.

The Asycube plugin is available to download for registered users of the Yamaha Robot Member website.
