Together with its partner TQ-Systems, the robot manufacturer Franka Emika has been pleased to support another Makeathon organized by the Hochschule Kempten/University of Applied Sciences.

This time the task was provided by Pester Pac Automation GmbH: «Automation of wiring in a control cabinet», which is commonly known as a difficult task for robots, as it requires a high degree of sensitivity and dexterity. That’s where our Franka Emika robots and four college teams came into play!

The students had to find a clever way to automatically perform wiring work inside a control cabinet between different components and terminals inside a control cabinet. Since the cables have different cross sections, they had to be handled individually. The task also included cable preparation, such as cutting to length and stripping, but especially clamping cables into components and routing cables inside cable ducts.

The particular challenge was mainly in managing the cables, which are difficult to grasp due to their flexibility, the operation of the cable clamps, and the placement of the cables in the cable ducts.

However, all the teams found creative solutions to the complex task and managed to use the sensitivity of our Franka Emika Robots to their advantage. If an application requires the dexterity of a human arm, our robot is the one for the job.
