9Systen Overview – Functional Description advintec TCP-3D calibrates the tool electronically in 3 dimensions (X, Y, Z).In addition it is possible to calibrate the tool orientation in the rotational axes (Rx, Ry, Rz).The existing tool is referenced first, so that it is not neccessary to repeat the manual tool calibration.The robot Trajectory is automatically offset according to the measured deviation in the tool position.The tool always works in the correct position or path.

18Applications Stud Welding Automated calibration of stud welding heads. Exact definition of the tool axis along the linear slide (5D-calbration of the TCP).Image: Tucker
19Applications 6D Gripper Calibration Automated 6D-calibration of the robot gripper.Ideal for exchangeable grippers and high-precision applications such as power train assembly.Compensation of temperature drift.Image: FZ Jülich
20Applications Reference pins 6D Part/Gripper Calibration (Motor assembly)Automated 6D-calibration of the robot gripper by using a reference part with calibration pins.The calibration pins can also be mounted directly on the gripper.
21Applications Spot Welding Due to failures, welding guns often need to be replaced during production time.The average down-time per gun change in a body shop can easily amount to approximately 90 minutes.An early detection of gun defects is thus of principal interest.
22Applications Drilling/Milling Automated calibration of Milling tools and drill bits including tool breakage detection.Ideal for use with an automatic tool changer.Stores the dimensions of multiple tools and verifies whether the correct tool is loaded in the tool changer.Image: Fink Plexiglas
23Applications 6D Blade Calibration TCP position, orientation and cutting direction of a blade.

25Features Calibration Times 2D-Calibration < 3 Seconds Calibration of the translational axes X and Y3D-Calibration < 5 SecondsCalibration of the translational axes X, Y and Z5D/6D-Calibration < 10 SecondsCalibration of the translational axes and the orientation X, Y, Z, Rx, Ry, Rz6D Gripper/Fixture Calibration >15 Secondsdepending on the application
26Features Various calibration modes can be combined for the same tool. Example:A welding torch can be quickly calibrated in 2D for small deviations during the production cycle. A more precise 5D-Calibration can be carried out after a tool change.

28Data Backup / UpdateWith the LEONI Backup Interface the system settings can be backed up and restored.In the event that a controller needs to be replaced, the settings of the old unit can be transferred to the replacement unit.
29Data Backup / Update Update Tool With this tool it is possible to perform a software update or install custom software onto the TCP-ControllerThe system settings are retained during an updatePower
30Additional Features Remote Configuration The configuration can be carried out via the field bus interface. Thus all settings required for the commisioning can be made via the teach pendant of the robot.Initial calibration of a toolAutomated initial calibration of an unknown tool.To this end only the starting point for the initial calibration needs to be recorded. The system then automatically calculates the tool data and transfers it to the robot controller.
31Customer Value Advantages at a glance Simplified Integration in the production line due to the small footprintExternal system, the calculations are made in an external processor and the results are transferred to the robot controllerHigh process safetyNo external PC requiredLogging of calibration dataData analysis possible at all timesNo more touching up due to tool wear or change100% Quality assurance, that is higher process safety and better productivity due to the elimination of manual intervention or position related faults.Calibration is carried out without contact or orientation movementsShort calibration timesSmall footprintIntegration in close proximity of the torch cleaneradvintec TCP-Sensors are unsensitive to anti-spatter spray, as they make use of infra red technologyReduction of costs due to reduced scrap and reworkElimination of possible sources of error due to dependance on own exact calibration valuesEasy to use and set up
