Magnetic equipment for LeanMotor Blanks – SoftMotion Robotics

STÖBER Antriebstechnik GmbH + Co. KG / Pforzheim / Germany

The rotors of the encoderless LeanMotor are manufactured at STÖBER in Pforzheim with the aid of a fully-automated robotic component mounting system. The central element is a rotary indexing table with five machining stations. With a total of three Scara robots, this table enables parallel processing at the individual stations.

The five machining stations are divided into the following processing steps:

Station 1:

  • Scara 1 picks up the empty blank from one of the three places on the infeed conveyor.
  • Rotative alignment via a sensor station and mounting on a mandrel on the rotary indexing table
  • If the rotary indexing table already contains finished products, these are placed on a discharge conveyor so that the mandrel is free.

Station 2:

  • Collecting the format-dependent number of magnets
  • Pick & Place of the magnets into the round blank with Scara 2

Station 3:

  • Pressing down of all magnets

Station 4:

  • Scara 3 applies a glue bead with a linear path movement.
  • Insertion of the magnets into the blank

Station 5:

  • Exposure of the glue with a UV lamp
