Robotic assembly

Industrial assembly is one of the core tasks in industrial manufacturing. We offer you assembly robots and combine the necessary components and parts to create complete systems or products for you. In doing so, we always make sure that your production operations are aligned with the latest Industrie 4.0 requirements. 


Assembly: the technology

Assembly is a key process step in industrial manufacturing and production. The reasons for this are increasingly diverse product ranges, more complex systems and production lines, shorter product life cycles and shorter innovation cycles. To be competitive in the era of Industrie 4.0, you need to be quick and above all flexible. An assembly process includes various work steps such as:

 

  • Handling of tools and workpieces

     

     

  • Quality assurance

     

  • Handling between individual assembly steps

     

  • Individual tasks within the production process

     

Flexible assembly robots – ready for your assembly process

What role does human-robot collaboration play in assembly automation?

Assembly is one of the most complex jobs a robot can perform. Modern assembly robots, such as the LBR iiwa and the LBR iisy, can be used flexibly to meet requirements. The sensitive characteristics of the cobots allow the collaborative robots to work safely and flexibly without fencing. This enables assembly robots to be integrated into the existing production environment and to work directly with humans. Human-robot collaboration (HRC) – also called collaborative robotics. Cobots additionally relieve humans of strenuous routine activities and execute assembly tasks quickly and reliably. The grippers of the assembly robots can also be equipped with cameras. This enables the robot or gripper to always find the correct components and positions.
Human-robot collaboration enables safe and efficient precision work. The sensitive lightweight robot works together with humans in the same space at the same time.
