Automation solutions and applications
Classical and new fields of application for industrial robots
The fields of application for industrial robots are numerous and versatile. They range from high-performance handling to plugging cables, from palletizing to force-controlled surface processing, and many more. They can be found both in classic large-scale production and in numerous new fields of application for automated robot applications. However, new challenges such as fluctuating production batch sizes, high variances, shorter production cycles and a shortage of skilled workers must also be managed. In order to remain competitive and to be able to guarantee highest efficiency and cost-effectiveness, a flexible production environment is required.
According to the different requirements, industrial robots and peripherals such as force-torque sensors, electric grippers and image processing systems like vision sensors from different manufacturers can be found in a manufacturing facility. The process from planning to programming up to commissioning of a robot application is frequently very time-consuming and thus also cost-intensive. Furthermore experts are needed to program the robot in the specific manufacturer’s language and to manage ongoing optimizations.
ArtiMinds RPS and LAR facilitate the development and operation of flexible automation solutions with robots in almost all industries. Typical applications include electronic manufacturing, mechanical assembly, cable & wire harness assembly, bin picking, quality assurance, handling and packaging, as well as laboratory processes.

“THIS IS HOW AUTOMATION WORKS”
Robotics for your Company: :
Opportunities – Obstacles & Stumbling Blocks – Solutions
In our free white paper, we show which stumbling blocks you should watch out for when implementing robotics applications, how you can avoid them, and give a broad overview of typical robot applications and use cases.
Robot-based automation – that´s what it should look like
- Flexible and agile during deployment and operation.
Example: being able to make changes to the hardware setup and to adapt the robot program without special robotics expertise.
- Robust in programming.
Example: compensation of variances and product tolerances and prevention of interface problems.
Example: Your employees are able to independently program robot processes – and remaining independent in the hardware selection at the same time.
ArtiMinds RPS and LAR offer solutions that were previously not feasible
ArtiMinds is your partner to flexibly automate your production processes and thus, offers companies of all sizes software solutions and services for the programming and operation of robot applications. From “simple” to “highly complex and demanding” tasks, we are the right contact for you. The following customer example shows how ArtiMinds RPS and LAR make solutions possible, which have been impossible so far:
„Airbags are sewn together in a ZF plant in Portugal. The challenge is to keep the sewing speed constant, even if the airbag does not have a uniform geometry.” Realizing this task with a robot proved to be unexpectedly difficult. Because, according to Arnold, “The robot sits almost centrally from the component. This means that depending on how far and at what angle the robot arm has to move, the speed of movement would have to be adjusted continuously.”
The colleagues from Portugal had tried for several weeks to solve this task and finally gave up. Even with external system integrators, the requirements did not seem to be feasible. Together with the ArtiMinds project team, ZF was finally able to work out a good solution for the implementation of the robot program.
