MFT-Micro-Flip Technologies for Micro Part Feeder

A flipping technology using 3D vibration effects and micro-flipping grippers will be developed to feed parts in the desired assembly pose and to eliminate the additional station needed to orient micro-parts.

Contexte initial

One part of the project is to develop intelligent software which analysis the information from the camera (number of parts, part location, part orientation) and from the feeding system (vibration frequency, intensity and orientation) and to find out automatically which are the most efficient parameters to feed any parts in a good orientation. The second part of the project is to develop a miniature gripper which can flip the part during the pick and place motion.
