Handling assistant (MAXO-MS-HA) / Concept study

  • Yellow robot arm of the Handling Assistant from above, next to it a crate with raw material

The handling assistants are mobile, autonomous and cooperative robots which can be used in many different ways. Whether in production during automated machine loading and unloading or in assembly during the joining process: Thanks to their "Human Robot Cooperation" (HRC) functionality, they support human abilities and considerably reduce physical exertion required of your employees.

A robot arm assumes physically strenuous work

Mobile handling assistants with different robot gripper arms are used in the Smart Factory to relieve the workload of the staff. They can be used in production in a variety of ways. In the production area, for example, handling assistants with magnetic grippers can assume the physically stressful "reaching into the crate". They thereby remove unsorted unmachined parts and blanks from crates and place them on a feed belt. After machining, another handling assistant collects the finished parts and converts them for the next work step.
