Carbures presents its collaborative robots at the IKN event about Industry 4.0

On February 15, the third edition of the conference on Intelligent and Hyperconnected Manufacturing - Industry 4.0 was held in Madrid by IKN. On this day, the main agents and leaders of this fourth industrial revolution met, and the latest advances and practical applications in the industrial area were presented.

Carbures was invited to this event as a success case within Industry 4.0 and as an example of implementation and introduction of collaborative technologies in the international industrial field. Marta Millan, project manager of the R & D area, gave a general introduction about the company, and described the specific situation of implementation in Carbures of the different parameters that define the concept of Industry 4.0. The years that Carbures has been working in all these technological developments, robotics and artificial vision, allow that implementation and developments are in a final phase in some cases, and very advanced in others, with respect to the competition.

The practical case that was put on the table was the development of a robot applied to the automotive sector in particular. Marta Millan also spoke of safety as a key element, even about overprotection of the operator in the case of collaborative robots, creating three areas of safety in the proximity of operator and robot, and slowing down the speed of the machine when the worker crosses the third security space.

The application and development of collaborative robotics also covers the Aerospace & Defense area, in addition to the Mobility division in Carbures. Thus, for fatiguing and repetitive tasks, the Hiro robot has been developed for the aeronautical sector, which allows the operator to dedicate himself to tasks of greater added value. The main benefits of the own technology in the use of collaborative robots are: to accelerate manufacturing processes, to guide collaborative robots, to give greater flexibility in the line for different part variants and absorb differences in tolerances within the same product, in addition to ensuring the safety of the process.

As you can see, this same effort of innovation and technology that since that spin off of the University of Cádiz has resulted in a leading global technology company in composites, is the same effort that has placed us as pioneers in Industry 4.0.
