Blumenbecker at automatica 2018 trade fair Manufacturing optimisation and Bin Picking 2.0
At this year’s automatica fair in Munich from 19 to 22 June, Blumenbecker was represented by two subsidiaries simultaneously: Blumenbecker Automatisierungstechnik GmbH and Blumenbecker Prag s.r.o.
Providing further evidence of its expertise in what is generically called “Bin Picking 2.0”, Blumenbecker Prag showcased a self-developed bin picking solution. A noteworthy improvement of the company’s variant is computation time, whereby scanning and computation of the gripping points are carried out simultaneously, making it 30 per cent faster than the previous version. The new bin picking solution now also allows picking of plastic components, such as injection-moulded parts.
Not to be outdone by its sister company, Blumenbecker Automatisierungstechnik also attracted significant interest, presenting a solution set which supports all sectors of industry in optimising their manufacturing processes in the Industry 4.0 age. In addition to comprehensive consulting, Blumenbecker Automatisierungstechnik’s offering also entails software-based process optimisation. What this could look like was demonstrated by the Automatisierungstechnik team to interested visitors using two practical examples from the field of switchgear production.
