On July 28, a workshop on robot grinding and force/torque sensors was held at SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG in Lauffen/Neckar on the topic of robot grinding and force/torque sensors. Participants of the workshop were Dr.-Ing. Ali Kanso, Marco Schneider, M.Sc. as well as Stefan Marx, M.Sc., scientific staff members of ZeMA within the Robotix-Academy. Responsible persons of the company Schunck arranged the program and made a live demonstration on a component in the laboratory.
The workshop mainly dealt with robot-assisted grinding and the operation of the Force/Torque sensors. This application with its technical requirements is of interest to the Robotix-Academy staff, as they have to ensure technology transfer in industrial projects.
