Abstract

To realize the automation of plugging bolt holes for automobile hub before the spraying process, this paper builds an automatic plugging bolt holes system, which is based on industrial robot and integrates the visual positioning technology and linear tracking technology. And then the overall system solution of robotic automatic plugging bolt holes is given. For meeting the tempo requirement of plugging bolt holes for automobile hub before the spraying process, the tempo calculation models based on different gripper structures are built. Specific to the process of plugging bolt holes for automobile hubs with different number of bolt holes, the tempo of plugging bolt holes finished by gripper with different structures and suckers number is compared for choosing a gripper with optimal configuration and number of suckers. The visual technology is applied in the robotic plugging bolt holes, first, the flexible positioning of hub holes is finished by visual positioning technology. Then, the position tracking of the hub holes is realized by the linear tracking technology when the hub is moving on the conveyor. At last, the fast and accurate plugging bolt holes for automobile hubs based on industrial robot is completed. This system replaces the human to put plugs into hub bolt holes automatically, which enhances the automation level and productivity of the automobile hub spraying line.
