SCHUNK - Gripping and Clamping News

Professional equipment for lightweight robots in the craft sector

Time is not standing still in the craft sector, either. Innovative technologies such as robotics are gradually finding their way into traditional manners of working in craft work. This offers a number of opportunities and has been simple and cost-effective to implement for some time now.

The "Robot Colleague" initiative launched by mi connect provides guidance to small industrial and craft businesses and shows how robots can already assist you in your daily work today. A variety of robotics events present users with the chance to learn more about modern lightweight robots and experience live tests of just how easily those robots can be operated and programmed. As a competence and global market leader, SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG from Lauffen/Neckar, Germany is a partner in this initiative. With its precisely matched grippers, quick-change systems and sensors from the company's Plug & Work portfolios, SCHUNK sets the benchmark for the use of lightweight robots. Ready-for-use program modules further simplify the programming and commissioning process, so that even inexperienced users can get started quickly. SCHUNK's expert knowledge is compiled in the professional tools, allowing beginners in automation to achieve a surprising range of results in a quick, cost-effective and straightforward manner. In view of the present shortage of skilled workers and a workforce that is growing increasingly older, this provides more efficient opportunities to reduce the level of monotonous or physically demanding tasks for employees.
