Function:
The Robot station can transport work pieces that are fed via a slide and place them in an assembly retainer. The sensor in the gripper enables the robot to differentiate work pieces by color (black/non-black). The sensor in the assembly retainer monitors the orientation of the work piece. From the assembly retainer the robot sorts the work pieces into various magazines or passes them on to the downstream station. Combination with the assembly station facilitates the assembly of work pieces.
