FANUC Robot Places Well Tanks on Overhead Conveyor

Find out more about the project
A manufacturer of well tanks came to Motion Controls Robotics with a request to integrate a system for placing multiple sized tanks onto a moving, overhead conveyor.

Carrying out expert evaluations and updating business plans and feasibility studies of investment projects for the production of continuous basalt fiber, staple fiber and basalt composite products.

This application needed a robot because having to handle the tanks when they leave the filament winder causes irritation for the operator and may affect the quality of the product.

FANUC HandlingTool with visual line tracking technology enhances the ability to identify then place items on a moving overhead conveyor.

The end of arm tooling for this project was adjustable based on the size of the tank to be picked. The grippers automatically slid open and, touching only the ends of the tank, picked and placed the tank on the conveyor.
