Automated Pick and Place Machine

Harvard Card was wanting an automation integrator to build an automated pick and place machine for their card assembly. This automated system utilized 6 motion controllers (Yaskawa MP2300s) to synchronize each axis motion with the product as it came down the conveyor. 

We choose the Yaskawa MP2300 single axis motion controller x6 for the motion control and the Redlion HMI for visualization. The Redlion HMI was connected using Modbus TCP and the drives were connected using EtherCat.

Drawing supplied by Yaskawa in their quick start guide for the MP2300. They also supplied a small program for demonstrating the controllers functionality.
