Gripper for wooden slats


In intralogistics in a concrete plant, wooden slats needed to be handled as an intermediate layer for concrete channels. The imprecise supply and uneven geometry (warping) of the wooden slats was a challenge.


A specially developed gripper with an integrated camera was used as the solution. The camera recorded the position and geometry deviation and fed this information back to the robot as a correction factor. The slats were picked up from the front side and could be pivoted in the gripped state.
