Centerline releases PinPoint machine tending solution for part feeding
July 10, 2020
By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
CenterLine (Windsor) Limited has launched a configurable new addition to its Configured Product Family to feed parts into robotic lines and cells.
The PinPoint Solution is designed to maximize production throughput, optimize operator utilization and part flexibility.
The intelligent machine tending solution is designed for simple integration and maintenance.
Parts are loaded on the pins and as they advance down the PinPoint Solution, they find their natural orientation, which positions the parts to be repeatably picked up by the robot. The PinPoint Solution also includes vision validation to ensure the part type and location for robot pick-up.
A few application examples where the PinPoint Solution can be used include CNC machine tending, build-in-sequence traceability and error proofing, robotic pack-out cells and plastic parts post processing.
