Integrated Force Control Adaptive motion technology Integrated Force Control is one of the key technologies driving the uptake of industrial robots. ABB‘s Integrated Force Control function facilitates the ease-ofuse for robots in applications requiring real-time adaptive motion control. Tactile sensing makes intelligent robots ABB Integrated Force Control automates complex tasks which once required skilled personnel and advanced fixed automation. The robot is equipped with tactile sensing which save installation costs, shortens programming time, reduces process cycle time and improves quality. The adaptive functionality of Integrated Force Control can be used in many applications, including assembly, product testing and machining. The technology includes powerful functionality that allows the robot to maintain a constant force between itself and the objects it is working with, which is invaluable in both machining and testing applications. The technology also can be used to adapt the robot’s speed upon input from the force sensor. This allows it to follow edges and other contours efficiently, such as in deburring of complex shapes. The tactile functionality of Integrated Force Control can also be used in assembly to search for correct positions using advanced search patterns. How does it work? Normally robots are position controlled with a predefined path and speed. With ABB Integrated Force Control, the robot reacts to its surroundings and deviates from the programmed path or speed based on feedback from the force sensor. The adapted movement of the robot is determined by constraints that are specified to suit the particular application. Assembly applications With Integrated Force Control automated assembly tasks are now possible using traditional robot automation. Compared with expensive hard automation, robotic solutions offer a lower cost investment and greater degree of flexibility. Assembly is a very demanding application in which parts with small tolerance’s must fit together. With ABB’s Integrated Force Control technology parts with very small tolerances can be assembled repeatability without requiring highly accurate and expensive fixtures. Integrated Force Control significantly reduces the risk of assembly failures which may result in production problems or damaged parts. A force controlled robot can be programmed to mimic the movements of a human arm, applying search patterns to find the correct position to assemble the part. Machining applications Force Control can be use to improve robotic machining applications such as grinding, polishing, deburring and deflashing. One of the software’s features, FC Pressure, allows a robot to grind, polish or buff parts whilst maintaining a constant force between the tool and the work piece. Another feature, FC SpeedChange, enables a robot to deburr or deflash partlines and surfaces of parts at a controlled speed, thereby slowing down when encountering excessive burrs or casting flash. This functionality reduces programming time and cycle times in demanding machining applications, and can also considerably increase to

Product testing applications Product testing is another application area where tactile sensing has advantages. It can be used for test products, for example car seats, steering wheels, hatches, glowe compartments and other similar parts. A robot equipped with force control can perform repetitive tasks with pre-defined forces and movement patterns. Because the forces and movements can be recorded, highly secure traceability is possible. ABB Integrated Force Control technology provides for flexible robot automation for testing tasks that was once only possible with expensive hard automation....
