Cobot assembly station

Cobot assembly station @ Flanders Make, Belgium 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…

Linear axis

Linear axis @ Zema, Germany 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…
