Handling & Automation Technology

Material sensitive handling and precise positioning of flexible, semi-finished products and components are key competencies of the production of multi-material systems.

These challenges will be met at the AZL in process chains due to testing of innovative approaches – e.g. electrostatic gripper (Fraunhofer IPT) or the 3D-measurement technology (Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering). The focus concentrates on the integration of systems. This leads to a significantly faster introduction of new handling and positioning systems in the industry.
