Optimise Cycle Time and Positioning Accuracy for Robots

Automatically Compensate for Vibrations with iQ Vibration Control

Our viper linear robots enable economical operation: they are lightly built and at the same time travel stably. With the digital solution iQ vibration control, vibrations are automatically compensated. This leads to increased robot position accuracy. Immediately after the end of the movement, the robot can deposit or remove the components. This saves you valuable cycle time. iQ vibration control is compatible with ENGEL viper linear robots.

How You Can Benefit From Vibration Compensation

Vibrations can be caused by the moving machine, the mould, or the ejector. Our digital solution compensates for both the internal vibrations of the robots and external influences. By automatically reducing natural vibrations, you can adjust the positioning accuracy of the robots at the touch of a button. Hence you benefit from more process reliability in your production.

10% shorter removal and pick-up times

iQ vibration control reduces vibrations and leads to higher path and positioning accuracy for robots. At the same time, the software ensures an optimised motion sequence. The produced components are removed from the mould and picked up from the conveyor belt more quickly. This allows your viper linear robot to work with shorter cycles at the same performance level.

Extended robot service life through protection of the mechanics

Vibrations cause deterioration and are thus a major cause of wear and tear on materials. The built-in mechanics of your viper linear robot are protected from vibrations and external influences by vibration control.

In this way, systems produce sustainably and at a constant level over a longer period of time. The iQ vibration control software ensures improved robot position accuracy and their longevity.

5 Steps to Stable Production Processes

How iQ vibration control automatically optimises the robot position accuracy

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

  2. Trajectory and speed are calculated

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

  4. Motor currents regulate the calculated deviation

  5. Robot movement is stable

Result:

  • Fast and accurate positioning for robots

  • Shorter removal and recording 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, optimising the robot position accuracy.

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