Assignment description:

At Philips Drachten, a lot of (sub) assemblies are made for shavers. The decorative parts are from plain plastic or spray painted with a colored paint. In our lacquering line we automatically spray paint layers on the decorative components of shavers, in 15 geometry variants. When we want to automate the product handling (racking and deracking products on a rotational spindle), we need approx. 15 different robot grippers, for each robot a set. Can we limit this number by a smart combination and design, in order to have less change overs and less costs, without damaging the parts. A set-up can be made in the ICD (Innovation Cluster Drachten) robotics lab with help of a UR5 robot. Samples can be made with help of the internal modelshop and made from metal and/or 3D printing techniques.
