Complex robotic assembly systems for electrolysers

In the SmartBOND joint project, the partners involved want to jointly develop and validate technological and organisational solutions that enable the establishment of adhesive bonding technology in shipbuilding by increasing product quality, productivity and healthy and attractive working conditions.

The aim of IBG's sub-project is to carry out the development of innovative, functional subsystems, taking into account automation that is as continuous as possible. This concerns in particular the handling processes related to the preparation of the surfaces of the components (lightweight walls and panes), implementation of the bonding process as well as process monitoring and quality assurance. All subsystems (robots, AGVs, grippers, etc.) are thus developed, built and tested and installed in the demonstrator.

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.
