Evolution through technology
The use of digital tools enables werk5 to create unique pieces that were previously unthinkable. Following CNC technology, robotics is the next evolutionary step in the craft of technical model making. The integration of robotics into the craft means creating a 'third hand' and using robots as multi-functional processing and assembly tools for collaborative use.
werk5 successfully integrated the robot arm KUKA Agilus , as well as the Cobot KUKA Iiwa into the work process of the technical model maker and developed the 'Robotics Toolbox', an application for craftsmen who want to exploit the advantages of robotics for their company without needing to hire their own software developers.
During the 'Internationalen Handwerksmesse 2019 (IHM)' werk5 presents SCANINFORM, an app for operating and controlling collaborative robots – easy and intuitive. At IHM, Christophe Barlieb and Dr.Thilo Rörig from the TU Berlin will hold a lecture, including practical examples. Further information is available here on our website and on the IHM website.
