Here we show a Cutting to Length application, in this example for a copper strip, realized with the robodev system.
The drive module rd.Drive.Torque moves the copper strip via conveyor wheels. The required length can be determined by the number of rotations. Alternatively this can be done with the rd.Camera.Stereo. This is suitable for varying lengths or for cutting heterogeneous workpieces such as brushes or chandelier clamps to length. Another motion module cuts the workpiece at the desired position. With the rd.Safety.EStop the application can be stopped at any time. In addition, light grids or door contacts can be used by the rd.Safety.Con1 to ensure safe use.
Due to their modular design, the robodev modules can be easily integrated into existing production lines, using aluminium profiles as shown here.
