Carbures invited to a panel of Industry 4.0 and Collaborative Robots

This week a conference was held in Madrid organized by IKN Spain on "Intelligent and Hyperconnected Manufacturing - Industry 4.0". At that event, Carbures was invited to participate in a specific panel of experts on collaborative robots. Rafael Repiso, our SAP Implementation Manager and IT Manager, was in charge of sharing our experience in this technological area and to reflect on the discussion with Alexandre Biau, Director of the Danone Plant in Tres Cantos (Madrid), considered one of the most efficient plants in Europe, and Antonio Vizán, Director of the Mechanical Engineering Department of ETSII-UPM.

Collaborative robots are a new generation of robots that integrate with humans in manufacturing environments, allowing them to work closely with no security constraints required in typical industrial robotics applications. [...]

Carbures signs a new contract with Gas Gas

Carbures has signed a second contract with Gas Gas to produce the air filter boxes for its new motorcycle limited edition. This motorcycle part is already being used in competition motorcycles by rider James Dabill at trial world competitions. This air filter box, which is used both as a seat and as an air intake, is going to be now replied in motorcycles for the general public, in a limited edition of Gas Gas’s model TXT GP. This new airbox designed by Carbures allows reducing a 40 per cent of its weight and expanding the air intake for the motor, which improves the vehicle’s performance. Since 2016, Carbures produces the fork protectors, the front mask and the airbox for Gas Gas’s Still Riding model.

Carbures’s site at Tecnobahía (El Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz) is working on this limited series, by simplifying the model and reducing a complex structure into a single carbon piece. The resulting component is more resistant and its weight is a 40 per cent lower as compared to the equivalent plastic pieceand, also, this part has an interior volume a 10 per cent biggerwhich implies that the motor shows a better performance. This limited edition in Gas Gas’s TXT GP model, with professional competition features, can be bought in 300, 280, 250 and 125 cc. [...]

Future is now, and it is brought by new technologies

Civil Works

Future is now is the title of the forum that Sir Norman Foster starred last Thursday, June 1st, at Teatro Real in Madrid, on the occasion of the presentation of his Foundation, located in a historical building of the capital center renewed with the latest architectural trends and for which Carbures made a complex composite cover of 172 square meters.

Our CEO, Borja Martínez-Laredo, was invited to the forum and heard Norman Foster say that the future is now and it comes from new technologies. Foster referred, fundamentally, to the cities of the future and gave data: in 2050, more than 70 percent of the world population will live in cities. Speaking of pollution, he said that cities are the problem as major polluters (chimneys, cars, etc.), but they must also be the solution. Since the 1960s, he has built sustainable cities and proposed the construction of buildings that take advantage of the water resources of the rain and the sun to generate electricity and the creation of green spaces to reduce, through photosynthesis, CO2 emissions. His aim is to create more humane, less polluted, more sustainable cities. It is his vision of the world and his contribution to make it a reality. [...]

Carbures sells its collaborative robots in USA and Japan

mobility , Automotive , Machinery

Carbures Machinery, integrated in the division of Carbures Mobility, advances in its line of business through the development and commercialization of its own technology. These are collaborative robots that optimize the car production chain, allowing the operator to work in a more effective and safe way.

These robots, which work simultaneously in the same work area with the operator, represent an advance in the engineering of processes and technologies of security of machines. This system allows the robot to collaborate in other tasks of more precision or more fatigue, while the operator is executing  other operations.  This reduces the cycle time of the production lines and improves their ergonomics. The integration of these types of robots among the products offered by the  Mobility division can represent a turnover of around € 3 million per year in a short period of time. [...]
