An RV-3SB grips a shaft of a fine writing instrument that is to be engraved and holds it in a laser. The finished engraved writing instrument is then placed back into the pallet.
The intelligent WT system (Servus) transfers a total of 36 process parameters to the robot, which can be freely edited by the customer depending on the type of writing instrument.
The robot controller takes over the central management of the system (control of the pneumatics via digital IO's and control of the Trumpf laser via TCP/IP (TLV commands))
An E1101 E-Terminal forms the interface to the machine operator, whereby the entire intelligence of the terminal is integrated into the robot controller.
As the parts have a relatively long cycle time (approx. 3 min., depending on the type), the system was designed in such a way that active intervention by the machine operator is only very rarely necessary and the system can produce independently overnight.
