CenterLine's PinPoint solution optimizes robot part handling for automated processesClick image to enlargeThe PinPoint Solution from CenterLine (Windsor) Inc. is a configurable machine tending solution to feed parts into robotic lines and cells designed to maximize production throughput and optimize operator utilization and part flexibility.

This intelligent machine tending solution is designed for simple integration and maintenance in numerous applications. 

It provides optimized operator utilization where one operator can load parts on more than one unit.

Parts are easily loaded on the pins and as they advance toward the robot, they find their natural orientation which positions the parts to be repeatably picked up by the robot. Its vision validation ensures the part type and location for robot pick-up. 

A few application examples where the PinPoint Solution can be used include: 

  • CNC Machine Tending
  • Build-in-sequence Traceability & Error Proofing
  • Robotic Pack-out Cells
  • Plastic Parts Post Processing.
