Customized robotics solutions
Industrial robots perform a variety of tasks. They are robust, high-tech and relatively affordable. But what can you do with one solitary robot? What you really want is an end-to-end solution tailored to your specific welding, sorting or other needs.
Blumenbecker has been supplying numerous industries with customized robots for years. We are product-agnostic and supply robotics solutions based on KUKA for many different applications.
If you invest in a Blumenbecker robotics solution, you can rest assured that it does exactly what you want. And that your investment will pay for itself.
Our 360° service range extends from exhaustive advance testing to robot maintenance and servicing. We develop proprietary control software and build component-specific tools and workholding systems. You may know us for custom-building machines for specific applications, but we supply standardized robot cells as well. They offer unprecedented mobility and flexibility thanks to their plug-and-play design.
Robot applications We develop tailor-made solutions for every need.
We are the go-to partner for all your robotics needs. Our certified engineers will draw on their deep, extensive experience in multiple fields and applications so your company can harness all the advantages of robotics technology.
In certain areas, we also act as a system integrator and general contractor who provides advice and guidance on quality and technology. We coordinate system vendors and build component-specific tools and workholding systems for your robot.
We will supply solutions tailored to your specific needs instead of one-size-fits-all products.
Our engineers are highly skilled and experienced in industries as wide-ranging as:
- Metal (e.g. automotive)
We take time for you
At the start of our relationship, we conduct an in-depth consultation to analyze your requirements of your pallitizing solution and identify any areas with potential for improvement. Next, we design and configure the robot palletizing station to meet your requirements while maximizing their value to you.
Design and planning
End-to-end design - more than hardware
We design not only your specific solution, but also its integration into your production process. This gives you planning certainty at an early stage. Equipped with the latest 3D design software, our engineers will expertly plan and simulate your robot workstations and robot cells.
We perform extensive feasibility tests on our equipment. That means we review the machine’s estimated duty cycle in practice and verify that the handling process will not damage your product.
More than code
We program robots, sensors and PLCs with state-of-the-art software. This includes designing robot work cells in 3D as well as conducting offline simulations prior to production. With this approach, we can design and test production processes in a dynamic 3D environment, define and validate production process sequences with realistic behaviours and optimized cycle times and simulate the initial start-up of production systems. Manufacturing schemes are tested virtually in advance in order to eliminate design flaws early on and verify information flows between the PLC and the robots. All these preparations get your system up and running much sooner.
Our wide-ranging experience in robot programming gives us the tools to tackle complex automation challenges in industrial facilities around the globe.
End-to-end project management up to commissioning
We will assign you a project manager to coordinate your project from consultation to implementation and beyond. Our experts will install and commission your system under the project manager's supervision.
They monitor the start-up process, test availability and optimize processes to quickly integrate the equipment into your production process. Our services include shift supervision by our engineers as well as operator and maintenance technician training.
Installation and dismantling
Assembly in the field of industrial robotics requires a high degree of expertise and flexibility. Our large team of skilled workers, masters, technicians and engineers takes care of your needs. If required, we also dismantle or replace your old systems.
Decided to modernise or overhaul your equipment? Count on our help for every project phase – from preliminary consulting to developing the project documentation to programming and execution.
We modernise old automation systems such as old Simatic S5 central systems by replacing them with new systems such as Simatic S7 with distributed modules. Equipment upgrades are in good hands with us, too.
We keep the most important spare parts of the robots installed by us in stock and are able to deliver them to you within 24 hours. Through cooperation with our other divisions, we can also offer you qualified engineering and repair services for more complex tasks. Thanks to our numerous service points, one of our technicians is always close to you and guarantees the smooth functioning of your robot systems.
We offer you a tailor-made and vendor-neutral maintenance service and carry out any necessary repairs immediately.
We share our knowledge
We offer training and further education courses at training centres in Prague, Bratislava, Katowice, Kiev and Iserlohn to help our customers get the most out of their robotics solutions. Robots are installed in the classrooms to aid learning.
We teach well over 100 courses each year on topics such as:
- General operator training for the installed system
- Robot maintenance training
- Robot programming training
- Software training for Blumenbecker robot software
Keeping everything running smoothly
Our end-to-end service approach ensures high customer satisfaction and excellent machine performance. If you wish, we can provide comprehensive after-sales service for our robotics solutions all over the world. We not only perform routine maintenance, but also supply parts and accessories for mechanical and electrical systems and reprogram or modify machines as required.
Our skilled technicians perform routine maintenance on robots – whether we supplied and installed them or not. We act as a KUKA System Partner in this capacity, for example.
Our services include:
- Regularly maintaining robots
- Supplying and installing spare parts
- Modifying robot designs and features
- Reprogramming and retooling
Repairs that cannot be completed in the field will be performed at one of our well-equipped repair shops. We keep frequently needed spare parts in stock.
We can also help with any unforeseen problems with your robots. We respond swiftly and use tried-and-tested troubleshooting processes to get your production up and running again quickly.
