The White Goods pilot is derived from a collaborative application installed in the Microwave Factory of Biandronno Plant (Italy). Based on the reconfiguration scenarios defined earlier in our project, ODIN solution for white goods will showcase the capability of handling different product variations under the same workstation.
The white goods pilot will focus on the assembly of an electrical oven and a gas cooktop. These assembly operations include the installation of different parts such as transformers, cooktops and knobs, on the main body of the respective white goods product. A human operator performs these assembly operations, while a UR10 collaborative robot is feeding the human operator with the parts. A cardboard and a separator part are also included in the pilot, and the Cobot is also responsible for safely removing them from the table surface using a custom reconfigurable vacuum gripper.
