Robots for installation spaces with short forward and backward cycle times
IBG develops and designs innovative robot modifications and processes for customer-specific applications and requirements. For example, a robot for narrow installation spaces with short forward and backward cycle times was implemented for the dismantling of nuclear power plants. Based on the wealth of experience in the field of CFRP gripping systems and CFRP machining, an industrial robot specially designed for this task was designed with an extended arm made of CFRP.
The composite fibre material CFRP, which is made from carbon fibres and epoxy resin, has become indispensable in aerospace, wind energy and racing. This is thanks to its numerous positive properties, which are unique in this combination. For example, CFRP has very high strength and rigidity at a comparatively low density. This innovative solution makes it possible to improve the ergonomics and cycle time of this system. The extension of the swing arm is generated specifically for the application. Other possible applications include seal application head, cylinder head gripper, cleaning head and cutting head.
