  • Introduction of the training

    This module provides a guideline for gripping and handling of small parts, e.g. electronic components, with a universal usable robot gripper. To achieve this goal, the user of the guideline analyses interdependencies between factors such as component geometry, number of pieces, cycle times and so on. Furthermore, the module describes the process of choosing the right components for the robot to handle. The results of the analysis are the selection of a suited stand-alone robot, the design of the gripping tool and the plant layout including required safety equipment for the desired application.

    The objective of this module is to create a guideline for the end user, which supports the process of realising a gripping and handling task. The focus lies on handling small components. The participant will be able to conduct the steps needed in order to implement the desired handling application.

    The training consists of the following aspects:
    • Selection of robot
    • Selection of gripper
    • Selection of components that can be handled by the robot
    • Required safety equipment
  • Key Users / Stakeholders

    Manufacturing SMEs, technology providers / system integrators, end users

  • Requirements

    The participant should be familiar with basic knowledge of handling technology and plant design and with the specifications of the components and the production process overall.
