SmartWing SW-V1 Compact Multi-joint Robot
This multi-joint robot is easy to set up, without the need for teaching in order to input task details. It has a slim arm structure and can support tasks that require fine movements.
Easy to set up
By using coordinate correction technology and vision data, teaching with physical guidance which is necessary for conventional robots is no longer needed. The time required for startup is greatly reduced.
Robot Cell Concept
Standard peripheral units are provided as options. The cost required for designing and manufacturing is also reduced. This contributes to a reduction in the total cost.
Can produce immediately
A camera system is equipped with SmartWing as standard. Settings required to use the camera such as for calibration are specified before shipping. Therefore, defining settings for the camera is not necessary and the robot can be used immediately after installation.
Anyone can use
Vision processing data and robot operation can be created easily without requiring specialized knowledge and experience.
By using various functions such as vision, tasks which used to be hard to achieve with conventional robots can be automated easily. This robot contributes to labor saving and quality improvement.
Setting long screws which has been challenging up to now with conventional robots can be automated easily by using the long screw feeder* for the Robot Cell Kit. Also, slight deviations in screw hole
positions are automatically compensated for by vision processing in order to securely insert screws.

Arrange and distribute loose workpieces
This robot can arrange loose workpieces into trays. After being arranged, the workpieces can then be delivered to operators or dedicated machines. The robot camera checks which workpieces can be elevated and then the workpieces are picked up. Unlike with conventional processes, it is not necessary to use dedicated feeders and this contributes to a reduction in costs.
Sorting workpieces based on search results
Workpieces are put into an inspection machine. Based on inspection results, the workpieces are automatically sorted and placed in pass and fail locations. This reduces the personnel required for these tasks and misplacement mistakes are prevented.
Dual robot cooperation for tightening screws
One robot sets and secures the workpiece. While the other robot tightens the screws. When one robot is tightening screws, the other robot provides support so that the workpiece will not move. In addition, deviations in screw hole positions are compensated for by vision processing so that screws are securely tightened.
