Fast intuitive programming
Innovative programming methods allow industrial robots to be programmed quickly and intuitively. Fraunhofer IPA adopts the programming-by-demonstration model whereby the robot is guided through the trajectory.
Precision, large work spaces and high payloads: industrial robots offer enormous potentials to automate welding and machining tasks and other continuous-path processes.
Fraunhofer IPA develops methods, technologies, components and software modules to improve the accuracy and cost-effectiveness of continuous-path processes using industrial robots.
The large work space, precision and endurance of robots offer enormous potentials to increase manufacturing efficiency. Thanks to advances in sensor and computer technology, robot programs can now be generated either fully- or partially-automatically. As a result, robots are being used to improve cost-effectiveness in industrial manufacturing, even in cases where small and average batch sizes are produced.
