Applications and solutions

Turn your process expertise into robotic automation: whether you are new to robots or have been automating your production processes for years, with Franka Production 3 you will experience process automation in a whole new way – fast, straightforward and intuitive like never before.

The Franka Production 3 Bundle

Franka Production 3

Franka Production 3´s robot system includes the Arm and its Control. The force sensitive and agile Arm features 7 DOF with torque sensors at each joint, industrial-grade pose repeatability of +/- 0.1mm and negligible path deviation even at high velocities. It comes with a payload of 3 kg, a reach of 855 mm and a workspace coverage of 94.5 %.

Basic Apps

Automation of processes made easy. The Basic Apps lower your barrier to entry to process automation, getting you started quickly and independently. Break down the task into steps, setup motions, exchange signals and handle errors. The bundle is inclusive of everything you need for picking and placing, handling and much more.

Franka Hand

The Hand is Franka Emika´s 2-finger gripper with exchangeable fingertips, fully integrated with the software of Franka Production 3, therefore plug-and-use. The fingertips can easily be changed and adapted to the objects to be grasped, e.g. by using 3D-printed fingertips.

Designed for a wide range of applications.

Franka Production 3 can be used effectively for large-scale production as well as for small-scale automation down to batch size 1. Such versatility requires both process stability and flexibility, from setting up new workcells to adapting existing tasks. And torque sensors in all joints of the robot arm allow for sensitive manipulation and force-enabled manufacturing processes, which require precision as well as application of fine-tuned forces and delicate handling.

Electronics Assembly

A machine is loaded with different components – without any protective fence.

RAM insertion

Thanks to force sensitiveness, the board is inserted via a wiggling movement, and applied forces are recorded.

Handling

The robot packs small product packages into a larger package.

Palletizing

The robot is ideal for automating palletizing and packaging thanks to its torque sensors, which enable sensitive and robust fitting and stacking.

Assembly

Placement of final product components into their packaging, making use of force sensitivity and fine-tuned force application for successful, robust fitting.

Packaging

Thanks to force sensitivity to contacts, no need of pre-determined precise positioning as the robot can move objects to target positions based on force feedback.

Dispensing and Soldering

Gluing

For the production of climbing arches, the robot precisely and reliably dispenses the right amount of glue into up to 1000 holes per day.
