Virtual Reality Training

Virtual Reality training as the demand for customised items increases, operators need to be able to handle a diversity of tasks. Learning new assemblies can be difficult and slow down production. Virtual reality setups, based on actual CAD designs of the product, allow to practice the assembly even before the components are available. In addition,…

Cobot assembly station

Cobot assembly station A human and a cobot (or collaborative robot) work together on the assembly of a small compressor. The operator takes care of the precision work, while the cobot handles the heavy and repetitive task. This demonstrator shows the advantages of digital work instructions, tailored to the experience level of the operator. At…

Collaborative Workcell 4.0

Collaborative Workcell 4.0 In our hybrid workstation we demonstrate the added value of human-robot collaboration. Cobots (or collaborative robots) are designed to work together with operators and handle a multitude of tasks. This is the best way to deal with the demand for small series production. At the same time, the work load of operators…

Linear axis

Linear axis A central focus in the research area Human-Robot-Cooperation (HRC) is the mobility of robot systems. The mobility of an MRK-capable robot system means the rapid expansion of the robot workspace as well as the rapid setup of such systems. The systems currently available on the market have specific disadvantages with regard to these…

HRC Aircraft Riveting Process

HRC Aircraft Riveting Process Assembly processes in aircraft production are difficult to automate due to technical risks. Examples of such technical challenges include small batch sizes and large product dimensions as well as limited work space for complex joining processes and organization of the assembly tasks. A fully automated system can be expensive and requires…
