SCHUNK presents gripping system solutions for the automation of the future

Overview of the Hannover Messe 2018

Intelligent handling scenarios, autonomously working systems and collaborative applications have one thing in common: They require reliable, efficient and smart components that enable high-level communication.

From April 23 to 27 at the Hannover Messe, we will show you solutions for smart gripping trends, Industry 4.0, the collaboration between humans and robots, and assembly automation.

Visit us in Hall 17 I Booth B40. We'll show you how future production can be implemented today.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Smart product life cycle – Equipped by SCHUNK

SCHUNK products, tools, and services for smart production
As the leading supplier of robots and production machines, SCHUNK is "closest to the part." Our components and services play a decisive role in digitalization and production.

The
Digital
Twin
Computer-aided, realistic
simulation of SCHUNK products
in real time.

Digital twin – what does this mean?

A digital twin is the digital form of a real object. The basis is the 3D CAD model, to which all product features, functions and process parameters are assigned – from the material to the sensor system, to the movement and dynamics. As an intelligent 3D model, the Digital Twin facilitates a realistic simulation in a computer-aided simulation environment.
All aspects of the operation and processes can be tested in real time. This facilitates the programming and optimizing of the sequence and the testing of extreme situations before the availability of individual components and modules.

In short: virtual commissioning will be possible before the planning phase.
