Title (EN) A METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CONTROLLING A CONVEYOR ASSEMBLY AND A ROBOT FOR PACKAGING
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME POUR COMMANDER UN ENSEMBLE TRANSPORTEUR ET UN ROBOT D'EMBALLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a method and system for controlling at least one of a conveyor assembly (102a, 102b, 102c, 108) and a robot (110) according to at least one setting with a controller. The conveyor assembly is arranged for receiving and transporting a plurality of units (104a, 104b, 104c), and the robot is arranged for picking and transferring one or more units of the plurality of units between at least two sections of the conveyor assembly for packaging. The method comprises receiving a value of a dimensional property of at least one unit of the plurality of units. The method further comprises deriving the at least one setting based on the value of the dimensional property. The method also comprises controlling at least one of the conveyor assembly and the robot based on the at least one setting. Here, the steps of receiving, deriving and controlling are performed while the at least one unit is transported.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un système pour commander au moins l'un d'un ensemble transporteur (102a, 102b, 102c, 108) et d'un robot (110) selon au moins un réglage avec un contrôleur. L'ensemble transporteur est agencé pour recevoir et transporter une pluralité d'unités (104a, 104b, 104c) et le robot est agencé pour prélever et transférer une ou plusieurs unités de la pluralité d'unités entre au moins deux sections de l'ensemble transporteur pour l'emballage. Le procédé comprend de recevoir une valeur d'une propriété dimensionnelle d'au moins une unité de la pluralité d'unités. Le procédé comprend en outre de dériver ledit au moins un réglage sur la base de la valeur de la propriété dimensionnelle. Le procédé comprend également de commander au moins l'un de l'ensemble transporteur et du robot sur la base dudit au moins un réglage. Ici, les étapes de réception, de dérivation et de commande sont effectuées pendant que ladite au moins une unité est transportée.
