New research topic at IGMR: Pick & Toss

June 12th, 2023 | by

Today’s production plants would be unthinkable without robotic pick & place processes. Handling objects are picked by the robot and placed at the target position with the desired target orientation. An innovative possibility to significantly increase the workspace of a robot and to reduce process times is the extension of this process by the targeted throwing of handling objects. Possible areas of application are the sorting of products that are not damaged during the throwing process (e.g. screws or nuts) or whose damage is of secondary relevance (e.g. sorting out defective products, separating materials in recycling plants).

Our goal is to describe the robotic pick & toss process using a combination of classical analytical and machine learning models to make the innovative process industrially viable.

Cross section group: Application Dynamics

January 13th, 2023 | by


The Application Dynamics team is made up of members from all IGMR research areas. This allows the skills in vibration analysis and machine dynamics to be optimally combined with the expertise and many years of experience in power transmission and robotics. This fusion of the Institute’s internal research priorities enables solutions to be found to problems that require both technical knowledge of dynamics and application-specific expertise. This cross section of knowledge is applied, for example, in the form of a needs-based investigation and exploitation of the dynamic effects of a system. The focus is on applications in robotics and gearing, but also covers all types of mechanical motion systems. The current research horizon ranges from kinematic redundancy and high-speed trajectories to the use of neural networks to extend the workspace through innovative object manipulation.

IGMR Seminar 01. Februar 2021 14:30 Uhr: Veronika Zumpe, Kuka AG

Wir begrüßen Frau Veronika Zumpe von Kuka zum IGMR Seminar. Auch dieser Veranstaltung wird weiterhin virtuell durchgeführt:

How to design a robot. A perspective from corporate research.

For specific handling tasks, there is a need for the development of new robotic systems. It is necessary to develop and design the system with respect to the given task, environment and other constraints. The design process includes finding a suitable kinematic, developing drive concepts for the robot axes, designing the structural parts and finalizing the robot design. For applications with human robot collaboration, more aspects like lightweight design play a significant role and thus should be taken into account. This talk gives a rough overview of the design process of a robot from my corporate research perspective.
