Eu-funding research project

21. October 2020

The business field of the Hoopmann company includes the development and production of special machines and equipment. Each manufactured machine is individually manufactured according to customer requirements.
One of the products of the Hoopmann company is a low-level transport vehicle. With the low-level transport vehicle small loads can be moved.
At present the low-level vehicle is equipped with special functions on customer request. The Hoopmann company is able to stand out from its competitors by the special superstructures.
In many applications, however, a low-cost variant of the low-level transport vehicle would be advantageous. During the development, savings should be specifically sought.
It is not the goal to build a fast or heavy-duty vehicle, but to replace the performance by a variety of low-cost vehicles.
This new innovative approach makes it possible to use low-floor transport vehicles in many areas.
Nowadays, many goods are transported to the production stations by means of a forklift truck. The personnel deployment is far too high for this “unproductive” activity in a modern manufacturing environment.
The driverless transport systems ( low-level transport vehicles ) allow a flexible material supply, which is controlled from a control center.

Eu-funding research project

29. October 2019

The business area of Hoopmann includes the development and production of special machines and systems. Each manufactured system is custom-made on customer request. As a rule, six-axis articulated arm robots are used for automatic assembly or removal of materials/components. The placement of the systems by a robot is no problem with simple geometries. The placement becomes difficult when the robot has to react flexibly to the tasks assigned to it. In the application described here, the robot is supposed to force-sensitively press a “plastic dowel”. The sensitive component must not be damaged. So far, this work has been taken over by Werkern. With a little practice and human adaptability to the situation, it is no problem for the worker to carry out the required activity. However, the hand muscles are heavily stressed during the execution of the activity. Therefore, appropriate mechanical auxiliary devices are provided to the operator. However, this results in an increased time.
The aim of the project is to develop a force-sensitive robot or robot arm that enables full or partial automation of the activity. A collaboration between a force-sensitive, collaborating robot and a worker is also conceivable.
