Robot-based handling: stacking of special profiles weighing up to 2.5 tons
Mannstaedt GmbH, based in Troisdorf in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, produces tailor-made special profiles. Used in the automotive industry and port construction, for example, the steel profiles can weigh up to 2.5 tonnes at a length of up to 26 meters.
The decisive advantage of the changeover: thanks to the robotic automation solution special profiles with a length of up to 26 meters – instead of the prior maximum of 16 meters – can now be produced. Six KR 1000 titan robots make this possible. The heavy-duty robots offer not only a very high payload capacity but also high repeatability even over greater distances.
