Betacom – automated assembly system
Betacom needed a way to assemble a critical part of their Photon LED light modules, automatically and precisely, with no human handling of the delicate lenses.
Design Energy developed a system that uses a Universal Robots UR10 with an automated screwdriver and custom vacuum gripper to pick and place PCBs and lenses and fasten them to an aluminium backing plate. This enabled Betacom to guarantee the delivery of a high-functioning product where the LEDs and delicate lenses have not been touched by human hands, ensuring minimum contamination. This also allowed them to then offer an industry-first 10-year warranty.
