M-3iA Flexible Solar Collector Assembly – FANUC Robotics Industrial Automation

A FANUC M-3iA six axis robot equipped with iRVision 2D, a two-jaw mechanical gripper and a sealing gun assembles a concentrated photovoltaic solar panel. The M-3iA robot scans and locates nine randomly oriented heat sinks and concentrated photovoltaic assemblies (CPAs) using iRVision Snap-in-Motion software. The M-3iA’s flexible three-axis wrist allows it to pick, reorient and insert each heat sink at a 15 degree angle into the solar panel. Next the robot simulates the application of sealer to the heat sink and CPA’s are assembled into the solar panel. The M-3iA robot is designed to maximize speed and flexibility for assembly, small part handling and picking applications.

FANUC Robotics America Corporation designs, engineers and manufactures industrial robots and robotic systems for a wide range of applications including arc and spot welding, material handling (machine tending, picking, packing, palletizing), material removal, assembly, paint finishing and dispensing. The company also provides application-specific software, controls, vision products, and complete support services. After 28 years of success, FANUC Robotics maintains its position as the leading robotics company in the Americas.
