The initial situation
The KUKA flexFELLOW has already been tested successfully over several months as part of a pilot system. This involves screwing pump wells into place in the dishwasher housing. Screw fastening of the pump covers is an ergonomically inconvenient task as the employee has to lean into the dishwasher housing to perform the task. The mechanical assistant now takes on this monotonous step in the process. In addition to relieving the human operator of a cumbersome task, the robot also contributes by documenting its work and indicating whether the screws have been tightened correctly or not.
