Integrating multi-axis robotics into industrial laser systems improves the precision and flexibility of your material handling efforts while maximizing ROI.
- Dynamic part positioning under laser focus
- High-speed material handling with vision assist
- Direct laser manipulation
Increase Your Efficiency
The usage of robotics in the material handling industry continues to grow every year as companies seek to reduce manual handling of parts and processes. Our solutions combine the flexibility of robotics with machine vision for processing highly complex objects with pinpoint laser accuracy and repeatability.
Robots can be used for direct laser manipulation—attaching the source to the robot head—for welding and cutting applications.
Laser Systems with Robotics
This laser marking system for automotive components utilizes a conveyor, 6-axis robot, rotary table, and machine vision.
- Robot loads a new part onto the rotary table as one is being processed
- Post-process vision validation of laser marked data matrix
This laser drilling system uses two 6-axis robots and a SCARA robot for material handling of plastic components.
- Pallet conveyor for loading parts into the system
- Testing station and CCTV camera for process monitoring
This laser marking system for LED light fixtures features a 6-axis robot for material handling.
- Rotary table for larger LEDs
This laser marking system for silicon wafers uses a 4-axis SCARA wafer robot and pre-aligner for material handling to mark serial numbers.
- Machine vision verification of serial numbers
This laser cutting system was designed to cut the ends off of medical test tubes after the injection molding process using a 4-axis SCARA robot and CO2 laser.
- Accepts multiple tube sizes
- Designed for adding a conveyor at a later date
Machine Vision Assisted Robots
Our robotic solutions can incorporate an off-axis vision system for detecting part orientation for the robot. This ensures every mark is placed exactly where it needs to be based on feature detection.
Titanium Drill Bit Marking Solutions
Robots not only made this process possible but reduced the overall footprint and complexity of this system. Different sized bits can be marked with a simple changeover of the program.
The Absolute Best Customer Service Around
Working with the entire Control Micro Systems team on our project was a pleasure. CMS was capable of meeting and exceeding our goals. They successfully designed and built a machine which increased our throughput by 550%! We are so glad we chose to move forward with CMS.
In the three years ACR has owned the CMS laser, it has worked flawlessly. In the few instances where ACR needed support in programming, CMS was quick to respond.
CMS have been excellent partners in the development of new, complex equipment for our business. CMS built multiple machines for us. Each machine had a different purpose, however the CMS team worked openly & honestly with us to agree on optimal solutions for each one.
