Exoskeleton

Technological improvements in the final assembly process are achieved through a variety of devices designed to increase process efficiency and quality. The function of these devices ranges from reducing manual workload to smart subdivision of tasks.​​

For manual tasks, the Group is developing an intelligent exoskeleton in collaboration with several partners as part of the EU funded RoboMate project. Based on human-robot interaction, the exoskeleton will be used for lifting and moving heavy goods in Europe’s factories of the future. The prototype is a non-anthropomorphic passive exoskeleton (with powered actuators) capable of helping lift loads of up to 15 kg. The first version of the prototype was completed in December 2016.
