Throwing and Capturing of Workpieces by Robots - New Transport Services for the Internet-Of-Things in Production Systems

Heinz Frank, Roland Koblinger

Abstract

In the first part of the paper for the transportation of workpieces within production systems an approach in which robots are throwing and capturing the workpieces is presented. This concept also can be applied for elevating, turn-over and commissioning of workpieces. The main advantages of this method are high speeds, high flexibility and the need of few resources. In the second part of the paper it is described how throwing and capturing of workpieces can be applied in production systems which are realized according to the internet-of-things concept.
