Bin Picking Dynamic Vision System

Midwest Engineered Systems designed and built a Tube Bin Picking, Orientation and Machine Loading Application System.

The Challenge


Design a fully automated multi-station press for HVAC header tubes. The machine must automatically load:

  • Header Tubes (variety of part configurations)

  • Baffles

  • End Caps

  • Parts must then be automatically assembled and sorted by part type.

The Solution


Midwest Engineered Systems designed and built an automated system  for the robotic loading of header tubes using:

  • Fanuc robotic system for bin picking with integrated machine vision system

  • Part identification using robotic vision

  • Part orientation using robotic vision

  • Robotic re-grip station to attain orientation

  • Magazine Loading Stamped Baffles

  • Vibratory bowl feeder loaded end caps

  • Servo driven electro-mechanical pressing

  • Laser part identification

  • Laser part position feedback

  • Recipe driven part press configuration

  • Linear cam driven assembly


Impact to the Customer


  • The MWES bin picking robotic vision system achieves a part rate of 1 part assembled every 6 seconds or less

  • Parts are automatically assembled, reducing secondary operation costs

  • The integrated robotic system sorts parts  automatically by top and bottom header speeding identification and reducing operations time
