New Application Center Tests Automation Solutions
Schunk’s new CoLab application center at the Brackenheim-Hausen site offers customers a testing ground for potential automation solutions in a realistic environment. Validated by Schunk Experts, the focus of the application center is particularly on new technologies and fields of application.
The possibilities of how to automate are diverse and new technologies are constantly expanding the spectrum. Uncertainties often prevent users from implementing automated processes, even if there is undiscovered potential. Is the planned cobot application feasible from the technical point of view? Is the selected gripping solution the right one for optimally handling my workpiece? Will we reach the desired cycle time? To support users with these issues, Schunk has expanded its service offering and established a new application center. The CoLab offers the necessary framework for customers to discuss and develop a solution for their application with the support of Schunk application engineers. The CoLab is divided into small cells for lightweight design, industrial robots and test setups. Twelve industrial robots and cobots are available for finding an appropriate solution for the practical problems.
