Also this year ITQ GmbH is exhibitor in the context of the leading trade fair for smart and digital automation, SPS – Smart Production Solution. From the 23th to the 25th of November 2021, visitors will get in hall 6, booth 240 an insight into the topics of Smart Collaborative Robotics and Smart Green Education Activities 4.0.
At the joint stand Bayern Innovativ, the new Fwip Ice Demonstrator will be presented and highlighted live. The new Fwip Ice Demonstrator is the current “Education 4.0” ITQ project. With this project, we not only want to show the possibilities in the field of automation and intelligent collaboration, but also emphasize our constant focus on innovative training concepts. Because we strive to support young people as part of our Young Talents promotion to expand their skills such as project management and personal responsibility. This is how we prepare them for today’s job market.
In this new “Education 4.0” ITQ project, two of our students were given the task of equipping the “Fwip” ice cream machine with new motors, sensors and software. Together they not only solved this challenge, but went one step further: they connected the ice cream machine to a “Rethink Sawyer robot”. You can then select a type of ice cream via a display and fresh ice cream is squeezed out straight away, while the robot movements, from the precise placement of the ice cream sundae to the squeezing out of the ice cream, are closely followed. The “Rethink Sawyer robot” automatically inserts an ice cartridge into the drawer of the ice machine provided for this purpose using a vacuum gripper and also automatically opens and closes it. With the help of neopixels, the movements are made visible to the viewer through light animation.
We are looking forward to seeing you at our booth!
