Saving resources in HRC production
Our solution is PREHUROCO, a technology that creates a shared virtual reality workspace over the Internet/Intranet for humans and robots.
The human operator will be digitally immersed into the real-time digital twin of the manufacturing cell by XR visualization and/or haptic feedback. This innovative usage of interactive technologies which can assist the human operator for avoiding collisions in various assembly tasks is a novel approach in cobot based production.
DECREASE the number of collisions to zero with proper system parameter settings.
DECREASE - the Takt Time (TT) by 5%
DEMONSTRATE how the XR technologies can be used in HRC based production by PREHUROCO for manufacturing companies
PREHUROCO is a new Business to Business (B2B) XR software package for industrial system integrator companies for reselling a custom tailored solution based on the PREHUROCO technology for their manufacturing company customers. The service provided for the customers is the opportunity to avoid interruptions in the production process. The value of this service is the output that can be realized during the saved time which means improved profitability for the manufacturing companies. Moreover, lower energy consumption can be shown up by the lower unit cost of the product.
- Warning humans about a chance of collision with robots (even mobile robots)
- Collision is avoided
- No robot interruption, no downtime in production
- Realizing Economies of Scale – lower cost per unit
- Higher margin.
