Consultancy and construction of automatic measuring systems and for tending to measuring machines
Since 1943, our Company has made constant investment in innovation. Starting January 2021, after many instances of cooperation, a new division dedicated to collaborative robotics was born thanks to a partnership agreement with Homberger Robotics. Homberger, an Italian company, is a leader in the integration of Cobot Doosan collaborative systems, equipped with technicians and laboratories capable of satisfying every type of operational need.
Hence an important partnership with the aim of evolving metrology towards new automation frontiers.
Our company can manufacture and integrate collaborative systems of measurement and dimensional and non-dimensional control in production areas, from the simplest tending to measuring machines and systems to actual completely autonomous measurement.
Some application examples are:
- Loading of pieces on traditional CMM measuring machine with automatic start of inspection cycle.
- Optical measuring system integrated on the measuring arm; C-OtpiMe
- Dimensional verification with sensors (picking of pieces and rejecting defective pieces)
- Handling of measuring instruments in position to support manual operations
- Measurement by laser scanner systems
- Custom systems
Why a collaborative system?
It is important to underline the difference between a collaborative robot (Cobot) and an industrial robot. A Cobot can be used without protections and barriers, in full compliance with safety regulations. In fact, a Cobot is equipped with emergency systems capable of avoiding any type of damage to the personnel who work with it.
Easy: the Cobot is easily programmable and, thanks to a self-learning function (like measuring machines), it can be programmed in a completely intuitive way.
Precise: for many applications the precision of the Cobot is able to ensure the requirements of accuracy and repeatability.
Versatile: can be used for multiple applications
Collaborative: a Cobot can operate in the presence of the operator, wait for instructions and collaborate with the operator himself in normal activities.
Fratelli Rotondi is equipped to analyze and design integrated dimensional control and metrology solutions by integrating their machines with the latest generation collaborative systems. Our staff is trained and constantly updated on the technical developments of the Doosan Cobots thanks to the collaboration with Homberger Robotics and on all its own and other metrological systems.
