Sirris has built a new demonstrator for making the opportunities offered by cobots more tangible. In this specific demonstration an operator is supported during the assembly of a smart product. We will introduce it to you on 28 November.

With the arrival of the KMR iiwa at our location in Diepenbeek, Sirris had a cobot with 'arms and legs’ for a short period of time. This allowed our experts to test and explore the potential of a mobile cobot, and we can now make this knowledge (as well as the cobot) available to companies.

In increasingly more production halls, man and machine are working side by side. A recent US study presents the current situation and extensively examines various use cases, to shed light on this relatively new technology.

The EMO fair in Hanover took place recently. The theme this year at the machining trade fair was Industry 4.0. Alicona was showcasing an optical 3D measuring system integrated into a cobot. This allows greater flexibility when measuring products.

GC Europe was thinking about automating its packaging processes with a cobot. Sorting all shapes and sizes of boxes into a single package ready for dispatch was the challenge. By building a test set-up Sirris was able to examine potential solutions.
