Optimize Cycle Time and Positioning Accuracy for Robots

Automatically Compensate for Vibrations with iQ Vibration Control

Our viper linear robots enable economical operation: they are lightweight in design and at the same time the movements are stable. The digital solution iQ vibration control automatically compensates for vibrations. This leads to increased positioning accuracy of the robot. Immediately after the end of the movement, the robot can place or remove the parts. Which saves you valuable cycle time. iQ vibration control is compatible with ENGEL viper linear robots.

Your Advantages of Vibration Compensation

Vibrations can be caused by the moving machine, the mold, or the ejector. Our digital solution compensates for both internal vibrations of the robots and external influences. By automatically reducing vibrations, the accuracy of positioning the robots can be set at the push of a button. You benefit from greater process reliability in your production.

10% shorter removal and take-out times

iQ vibration control reduces vibrations and leads to higher path and positioning accuracy for robots. The software additionally ensures an optimized movement sequence. The produced parts are removed more quickly from the mold and placed on the conveyor belt. This allows your viper linear robot to work at the same performance level but with shorter cycles.

Extended robot service life through protection of the mechanics

Vibrations cause deterioration and are therefore a major cause of wear on components. The built-in mechanics of your viper linear robots are protected from vibrations and external influences by vibration control. Consequently, machines produce sustainably and at a constant level over a longer period of time. The iQ vibration control software ensures improved accuracy of positioning robots and their longevity.

5 Steps to Stable Production Processes

How iQ vibration control automatically optimizes the accuracy in positioning your robots

  1. Weight and payload of the robot are saved in the system

  2. Path and speed are calculated

  3. Vibration sensor determines the deviation between path and actual vibrations

  4. Motor currents regulate the calculated deviation

  5. Robot travels stable

Result:

  • Fast and accurate positioning for robots

  • Shorter removal and take-out times

  • Protection of the mechanics increases the service life of the robot

  • More process reliability in production

With the digital solution iQ vibration control, the movements at the end of the vertical axis near the gripper are measured in our viper linear robots. Acceleration sensors compensate for the vibrations via the controller and servo drives, optimizing the accuracy in positioning the robots.

Active compensation of robot vibrations ensures fast and accurate positioning of the robot. It works independently of external influences such as the movements of the clamping platens, ejectors, or peripheries. The result: stable and safe production processes.
