Delta Electronics announces “next-generation factory automation” following labour shortages

Following the shortage of labor for the production of technological products, Delta Electronics, manufacturer of EV chargers, introduces a family of robots that will change the future of the industry. What advantages does it offer?

At the Hannover Messe event, the leading industrial technology fair in Germany, Delta Electronics, manufacturer of electric vehicle chargers and other technological products, unveiled a technological innovation that will enable automation in production.

This is the family of Cobots, a wide range of versatile robot variants, including the D-Bot 6, 8, 10, 16, 20, and 30 models, designed to carry out hazardous tasks, contribute to more adaptable manufacturing, reduce labor-related expenses, and streamline development processes.

The highlight of this new series is its range of rotation, which, having six axes, ranges from 135 to 360 degrees, coupled with each device weighing between 26 and 95 kilograms.

Michael Mayer Rosa, Senior Director of Delta Electronics Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), states: “Europe is facing the challenge that fewer and fewer employees are available for production.”

“We need to close this gap because the next generation will no longer feed machines,” he adds.

During the presentation of the devices, five exciting applications were highlighted that these robots can perform to drive mechanization in various industrial sectors.

The first of these applications is selection and placement, where robots can sort objects and place them in specific trays using integrated cameras and suction grippers.

Furthermore, a solution for human interaction with Cobots was presented, where users can directly interact with the machines using an intuitive teaching panel with “drag-and-drop” functions to program tasks.

Consequently, the implementation of automation would be accessible even in small workspaces.

Another highlighted application is palletizing, where Cobots can handle the arrangement of products on pallets efficiently and accurately.

This is particularly useful in storage and logistics environments, where palletizing products is a common and repetitive task.

Additionally, the capability for smart documentation was presented, where Cobots can perform screwing operations and automatically detect errors to ensure quality and precision in manufacturing processes.

This capability improves efficiency and reduces development times by eliminating the need for manual inspection.

Lastly, the ability for robot-to-robot transfer was emphasized, where two devices can communicate with each other to perform coordinated tasks.
