The intelligent automotive production
Enabled by cognitive robotic assistants
A new era of manufacturingSince the introduction of robotic automation in manufacturing in 1962, the automotive industry has always been the pioneer in robotic automation to improve its competitive advantage. In most production lines in the automotive industry, large industrial robots are used surrounded by cages since they cannot perceive their surroundings, exposing workers to the risk of accidents. Thanks to advanced sensor technology, our cognitive and adaptive robots are able to perform everyday tasks and work safely with humans in the same workspace with the performance of an industrial robot. The use of such robots enables manufacturers to increase productivity, shorten time-to-market, and reduce costs associated with high inventory levels and overproduction.
Benefits for the automotive industry
Facilitate workflows with high speed (up to 4.5 m/s) and repeatability (± 0.01 mm), no matter if screwing, mounting wheels or inserting windshields.
Even non-professionals can use the robots via the user-friendly interface, hand guidance, voice control and gesture control.
Dusty and hazardous tasks are handled by the robots, while touchless safe human detection technology enables safe cooperation between humans and robots.
The embedded AI can easily detect defective parts to ensure that faulty products don’t reach customers.
Precise performance saves raw materials in various steps while reducing the number of products rejected due to quality issues.
