Automated Kitting in an Assembly Workshop
The number and variety of components are increasingly important in factories. Putting the assembly kits together manually is a complicated and time-consuming task. The challenge is to save time and eliminate mistakes.
The objective of this project is to design a kit-making robot that works directly from factory stocks.
This work has resulted in the design of the most compact autonomous system to date. It can grip components up to 8 kg in weight and at a height of up to 4m. It uses the “jamming gripper” to grab a wide range of components. With this system, several robots can work together if required.
