In the test case of Philips shaver parts are handled by a robot.

In the test case of Philips shaver parts are handled by a robot.

The consortium has decided to focus on certain cases to demonstrate the ability of using robotic technologies for automating tasks which have been done and are still been done manually.

So far, the cases are:

Handling:
The planting of Yucca palm stems in pots is currently done manually. A spin-off of TU Delft is working on the automation of this task,
which was brought to Factory-in-a-day by a company in one of the check-up tests  for feasibility of robotic tasks (Quickscan).

 Assembling:
In the Philips test case the robot has to place trays with shaver parts in a certain position to fill a tampon printing machine. The robot must load and unload the trays, checking also the quality of these parts. This case is the most advanced one so far. First on-site tests are planned for the end of 2015.

There are a number of videos available on your YouTube channel regarding this use case.
