Robot Milling Systems Case Study
Robot Milling Systems brief:
The project is to design and build a industrial control panel to integrate with used industrial robot KUKA KR240 with Edition 5 Controller along with a two tonne capacity turntable and install and commission the robot and industrial control panel. The inverter and all the cell control equipment will be housed in the Phoenix Control Panel. We will also provide basic robot programming.
Skill: The concept is for a milling cell utilising two different spindles that have common electrical and pneumatic connections and bracketry
Robot Milling Systems Scope:
- To provide an interface between the robot controller and the peripheral equipment there are a number of digital inputs and outputs along with an analogue output module mounted in the cell control panel.
- Along with the coupler there are four off 4 digital input cards, two off 4 digital output card and an analogue output card.
The door safety switch
- The cell access door will be monitored by a Guardmaster two channel safety switch that is integrated into the robots operator safety circuit.
- The supply and installation of the door safety switch is in the scope of Phoenix Control Systems Ltd.
Industrial Control Panel
Installation & Commissioning
- The electrical install of the robot and the spindle cables
- The electrical install of the cell control panel and connection of the cables from the industrial panel to the main incoming supply, from the control panel to the door lock.
- The commissioning of the robot (mastering, floor defined working base data, turntable root point and offset along with two spindle tool definitions for the cutting trials).
- The commissioning of the safety circuits (Estop and Operator safety) and industrial panel push button controls.
- The robot programming and testing of the auto tool changer sequences.
- The ten position tool rack
- Phoenix will connect the industrial panel supplies into the wall mounted
Installation under our direction & supervision
- The mechanical installation of the robot and turntable, the ten-position tool rack and Phoenix’s Control Panel
- Kuka robotic training
