Conzept 1: Transfer to a drop-off point
A robot transports the stones and unloads them at a drop-off point. The second robot picks up the stones at the transfer point and builds them up into a tower.
Conzept 2: Transfer with a swivel arm
The first robot has a gripper arm that can reach both magazines and the transfer location by means of a rotary movement. The stones are transported directly from the magazines to the second robot and transferred. The second robot builds on site and sets up the tower.
Conzept 3: Loading up and stacking combined
In this concept, both robots are very similar. The stones are taken one after the other by both robots and the tower is systematically built from bottom to top.
During the Specialist Weeks we were able to carry out various tests. For example, we were able to calculate the holding force (force with which a Duplo stone is pressed onto another stone) from the tests.
