Component gripper

All automisation solutions need gripping techniques corresponding to the requirements and the usage. This is the decisive linking element to the robot and must guarantee the secure operation of components. IBG due to the yearlong experience has solved most different tasks and due to the employees in the company does have great know-how.

You can see the most different applicatioin examples in the following.

Multi grippers

The multi grippers developed by IBG have been designed in such a way that they take over the handling tasks and guarantee an exact holding during the complex processing steps. By movement of the gripper the most different components can be picked up in one step.

Circlip grippers

IBG developed a special gripper for the picking up of retaining grippers of different diameters. This was integrated into a complete system for the automatic mounting of the retaining ring.

Pump grippers

In order to pick up pumps a movable negative image of the pump head was applied to this gripper. The pump is held by a robot and additionally a gasket is implemented.

Vaccum grippers for the loading and unloading of a CNC lathe

Components of different forms and dimensions can be picked up out of a disorderedly container. For this task the robot has been equipped with a special vacuum suction system. It directs the component to a camera, which recognises the turning orientation of the frontal embossing at the front end.

Cell chaining

An automated workpiece feeding has been realised by a robot. The gripper at the robot has been specially designed to grab the components. After the process the robot changes the tools and uses for example a deburring tool to continue the processing of the parts.

Profile gripper with automated recognition

In this project a facility has been realised that cooperates with a camera in order to pick up different profiles. The gripper apart from the gripping function in addition is equipped with a vacuum large-area gripper enabling it to separate the profiles from each other.

Motor grippers

This gripper is used to grab a motor at the material provision and for the following replacement onto another workpiece carrier. The robot communicates with the automated transportation vehicle, on which the carrier is situated in order to guarantee the correct pick up position.

Rim grippers

By help of the robot the rims are fed to the milling machine and are taken back again after completion. The gripper is suited for wheel diameters of 13 to 22“ and a wheel weight of maximum 30 kg. It is equipped with a collision protection to avoid damages of the components.

Vacuum grippers

The gripper is used for example to lift components heated up by pressure out of the form and to cool them down on the way to the next processing station. The handling device is equipped with several vacuum grippers and leads, which hold the component in the right position.

Plate grippers

This gripper is a vacuum gripper specially developed for this purpose, which is to grab raw panels from a stack and deposit them on the cutting table. The boards to be processed are coated and can stick to each other. Due to this fact the raw boards are lifted with a peeling motion from the material provision.

Twofold gripping head

A robot equipped with a twofold gripping head takes each time a motor out of a load carrier. The location of the motor is recognised by a camera fixed to the gripping head and the pickup position is fine-tuned. The robot moves with the motor in the gripper to the next station. Here the robot inserts the motor into the housing and screws both together.

Shaft gripper

Equipped with a conbined gripping welding unit this robot among others directs shafts to the shelf out of which the workman takes it. In the facility the car cardan shafts are measured to determine the primordial and residual imbalance. After that the balancing weight is welded on by the welding unit. After that the robot takes the cardan shafts out of the clamping fixture and the robot moves to the mounting station of the paint covers.

Cylinder head gripper

The cylinder heads to be moved are mounted on standardised adapter plates with defined gripping points. The gripper is used to realise the automated handling of the components. The components are taken out of the feed and deposited on a shelf on a rotary plate. In this aligned position the components are directed to an automated wash station.

Wheel gripper

An industrial gripper is equipped with a special gripper that makes a defined picking up of truck tires of different sizes possible. The gripper allows an exact handling of the wheels during the further processing, as for example during the automated balancing. Furthermore IBG realises the automated handling of complete wheels of all kind.

Optimisation of production processes in all sectors

Automation and Robotics as instruments for increasing the efficiency of industrial production processes are designed and developed by the IBG / Goeke Technology Group, under the guiding principle "Transformation of human genius into technical perfection". Technology solutions and high technology systems are designed for the individual requirements of our global clients and all sectors, from our main headquarters in Neuenrade, Dortmund.

Automotive solutions, robotics-based solutions and other technology systems from the IBG / Goeke Technology Group are best-in-the-class industry technologies. We achieve this top level in industrial technology through close interlinking of decades of experience as engineers with science and research. We ensure that our know-how in the automotive and robotics fields, as well as our technology service, benefits from optimisation of industrial processes, but without losing sight at the person at the centre of it all – learn more about our social engagement here.
