Škoda Auto, MATADOR Group and KUKA: ending the separation of humans and robots in factories

IFR Robot Supplier

Dec 04, 2018 Automotive manufacturer, Škoda uses collaborative robots in the assembly of automatic transmission systems. Workers bring gear actuator pistons to a collaborative robot which inserts them into the transmission housing. Torque sensors provide feedback on resistance, enabling the robot to insert the components without forcing them into place.

SIASUN collaborative robot helps the automobile industry to change its manufacturing mode

Nov 30, 2018 In this example of screw tightening at Chinese automotive manufacturer CSVW, a collaborative robot picks up a screw tightening gun to tighten three screws on an engine, puts down the first gun, then picks up a second in tighten two other screws. A worker meanwhile performs other tasks on the engine.

Co-act scenarios in the assembly of industrial components

Nov 30, 2018 Schunk, a manufacturer of robot grippers, uses a collaborative robot in the pre-assembly process. A robot equipped with a camera takes base housings from a container and brings them to the worker. The robot also tightens screws, closes air connections on the gripper and strips excess glue. Meanwhile, workers complete tasks requiring high dexterity.
