1 Palletizing the Easy Way
PickMaster 5.0

2 Content ABB Packaging Software System overview Use of software
Features Customer values When and how can it be ordered? How to get trained

3 PickMaster- The ABB Packaging software
Packing Palletizing Picking

4 Line control Product in feed operated by line controller
Typically PLC Not included in PickMaster 5 Products defined in line controller and PickMaster 5 PickMaster 5 requests products from line controller for palletizing operation Line controller acknowledge when ready Request by pre defined I/O signals Projects started from GTPU From PLC using I/O signal event handling

5 PickMasterTM workflow
Offline Configuration Transfer Operation

6 System configuration Maximum, 1 robot per controller
32 controllers per PickMaster 5 4 and 6 axis robots

7 Optimize your Production Line
Configure the whole layout of the palletizing cell PickMaster 5 Line configuration Size and positions In-feeders Pallets Slip sheets et.c. Supports 32 controllers 15 work areas per controller The PickMaster line configuration describes the palletizing cell and is the same regardless what products are palletized

8 Easy to find optimum pattern
Integrated pallet pattern generator Open for third party palletizing pattern software Internal Library Calculation of optimal robot motion Approach angles Facings Multi pick/place for max throughput Grippers included in configuration We calculate different patterns depending on box sizes, then you choose one. There is a Library in which the user can store patterns. We do also have possibillity to import MS.

9 Define the product Shapes Item
Physical dimensions of a box, bag, slip sheet, pallet et.c. Item Refers to an actual shape Max speed, acceleration, rotation Weight Facing

10 Flexible Application Concepts
Mixed product in-feed formats Product distribution to multiple production stations Mixing of multiple products to one stack Bi-directional – Palletizing/De-palletizing Logical Flow Control allows user to instantly change infeed for a product Alternative infeeds can be configured for an out feed pallet We are flexible to palletize between stations. One infeed is not locked to one out feed

11 Ease of Use Operation Efficient operation from ABB’s graphical FlexPendant Production information Control of individual production cycles Start project Stop project Resume Acknowledge On line tuning and error recovery will be introduced in 5.01.

12 Open Interface to Line Control
Best fit to Station Logics PLC’s Generic Station Signal Interface Request Status I/O Communication configured for Grippers Conveyors AGV´s Quality inspection Bar code reading

13 Loaded With Features Individual speed and acceleration control of products Integrated tool configuration with activator zones Manually adjustments of individual pick & place operations Early request RS simulation Stack height checking Collision avoidance Flow Backwards compatible

14 Handled with care Set maximum speed, acceleration and axis 4 rotation
The configuration is linked to the actual product regardless what in-feed / out-feed it is using Pick & place activation Pick & place time Advanced motion control

15 Integrated tool configuration
Grippers configured in PickMaster 5 I/O control of individual activator zones

16 Manual override of calculations
Improve calculated pick & place operations Manually adjustments Facing Approach angle Numbers of products

17 Utilize the Robot Performance
ABB motion control for the highest speed performance Early requests ensures highest possible robot utilization Minimize wait time for boxes Robot may start movement even before pick up target is confirmed

18 Simulate With Real Virtual Controller
Check cycle times Check boundaries Visualization Does not run directly from PM. Needs to download into RobotStudio. No library for boxes et.s. and they are not inclufded in the RS. Can not check box heights et.c.

19 Collision avoidance Built in automatic avoidance of work objects in the cell Possible to add safe points for the robot to pass through Avoids collision with other fixed equipments

20 Logical Flow Control Improve system redundancy
Let the robot adapt to where you want to feed the products Choose what in-feeds you want to use for what products on daily basis Optimize robot utilization Use two in-feed stations for one out-feed Mix different products from different in-feed stations

21 Backward compatible Changes done on GTPU can be saved back to PC and transferred to other lines

22 Market trend Focus on hardware cost
It used to be about……… Now it is……… Focus on hardware cost Maintaining high skilled programming competence at SI Specialized robot programming SI developing own semi standard software Production changes needs re-programming by SI Reduce programming cost SI focusing at developing smart solutions for end customers Ease of use tool for robot integration Standard software with full customer support End customers performs production changes with standard software

23 Lower the engineering cost
No need for costly robot programming PickMaster 5 creates all the robot moves from the PC configuration

24 Untie your human resources
An Ease of Use software can be handled by a general competence No need for dedicated robot programmers More flexible use of companies human resources

25 Manage quick changes Product changes requires Ease of Use products
Changes easily re-configured with PickMaster 5 No need for specialists with detailed robot code about the actual installation

26 Flexible for late changes
Late changes in layout is managed by configuration changes No need for complete re programming

27 Global Support ABB supports standard products globally over the complete product life cycle

28 Cut the software maintenance cost
Large volume product loaded with application tools Continuously developed by ABB to meet customer requirements Avoid “Inventing the wheel”

29 Multi application software
PickMaster is an Ease of Use software for picking, packing and palletizing Uses the same graphical concept for all applications Reduces maintenance needs

30 Add flexibility directly at the robot cell
Improve system redundancy Let the robot adapt to where you want to feed the products Choose what in-feeds you want to use for what products on daily basis Optimize robot utilization Use two in-feed stations for one out-feed Mix different products from different in-feed stations

31 When and how can it be ordered?
Sales start may 14 Option “Prepared for PickMaster 5” must be specified on robot controller IRB 2400 and IRB 4400 on request Multimove not supported The PC software is ordered on specification form for PickMaster 5

32 How to get trained Robot University has a 3 days training on PickMaster 5 In depth training for technicians Technical sales training Training for sales and technical sales support Sales-Support
