OnRobot's screwdriver EOA fits most robots
- June 24, 2020
This provides welcome relief for manufacturers who are eager to automate repetitive, unergonomic, and often inconsistent manual screwdriving processes, but struggle to integrate and program piecemeal screwdriving systems.
Programming the OnRobot Screwdriver is as easy as entering the appropriate screw length and torque value into the user interface that is integrated into the teach pendant of any leading robot.
With precise torque control and embedded axis, the OnRobot Screwdriver automatically calculates the speed and force required for consistent, accurate screwdriving. The Screwdriver can detect incorrect screw length, which can help improve overall quality and reduce scrap.
With the tool’s unique “z-axis,” screws are retracted inside and driven automatically once the robot arm moves into position, which reduces robot arm movement and additional programming. Screws up to 35mm long are retracted completely inside the Screwdriver when moving until the screwdriving process is safely initiated, enhancing its collaborative capabilities.
The Screwdriver can handle a wide range of screw sizes and lengths, from M1.6 to M6, and up to 50mm long. With its simple programming and easily exchangeable bit system, the Screwdriver can be quickly changed over to a different screw size, length or product line in minutes, which minimizes downtime and improves productivity.
The Screwdriver includes the following robust and intuitive features:
- Embedded axis for accuracy and easy programming
- Precise torque control from 0.15Nm to 5Nm
- Screw sizes from M1.6 to M6, and up to 50mm long
- Available screw feeders
- ESD safe for electronics assembly
