Transforming manufacturing

The tenth edition of the Zukunftsnavigator series on 6 May focused on robotics and automation. Participants on site at BadenCampus were shown the potential of robotics and automation for the manufacturing industry had the opportunity to networking with companies and start-ups.

Rudolph Hermann from wandelbots started the technological presentations with an exciting robot demo live on site.

Afterwards, successful start-ups from the networks of BadenCampus and EIT Manufacturing Central presented themselves and their solutions. Here is a recap:

goodBot is the first pipetting robot designed entirely for the technology needs of research labs. Its innovative design allows the goodBot to be placed directly at the lab technician’s workstation, making automation intuitively accessible and preserving valuable lab space.

symovo offers an easy-use intralogistics solution for the transport of all common small load carriers. The mobile robots can be set up by customers themselves and adapted to the constantly changing processes.

The IUNA AI Scanner automates quality assurance in production with the help of intelligent camera systems. It thus enables highly automated inspection of a wide variety of products and materials in production.

roboception – eyes and brains for your robots. Classic reaching-into-the-box jobs, robotic (de)palletising, efficient loading of machines, pick-and-place or control tasks – this and more can be efficiently automated with Roboception’s rc_visard stereo sensor and the rc_reason software suite.

With robotics-as-a-service, Awesome Technologies offers companies the opportunity to quickly get started with the use of modern robotic systems and generate direct economic benefits. The joint context analysis on site is accompanied by an economic impact analysis taking into account new trends in robotics. This is how “Smart Manufacturing” becomes reality.

ADAXIS – AdaOne is a powerful and intuitive computer-aided manufacturing software for robotic additive manufacturing. It allows users to intuitively configure a robot as a 3D printer, plan toolpaths, use the full flexibility of the robot, make process predictions and monitor its behaviour in real time.

The event is organised by BadenCampus in collaboration with EIT Manufacturing, DigiHUB Südbaden, and the BANSBACH Startup Desk.
