Safe human-robot collaboration (HRC) contributes to the more efficient organization of production processes. In addition, the robot application is relocatable, allowing the worker to move the KUKA flexFELLOW to the desired workplace, for example to load machine tools. In the application displayed here, the LBR iiwa lightweight robot mounted on its mobile platform independently loads the friction welding machine using a special gripper system suitable for HRC. The robot then removes the component and sets it down. This eliminates wait times for the worker during the welding process, allowing him to focus his full attention on other tasks, such as the quality inspection of the components.
