Sub zero automation with robot arm and gripper

A cool showcase of automation provided by the company EmK. With the automated slush ice machine, EmK shows how automation can simply succeed in the catering industry.

With its flexible workspace, the igus robolink robot arm is very well suited for the complex motion sequences. Thanks to its low price and simple programming, it is perfect for automation as in this case of catering applications. In combination with SoftGripper's four-finger gripper, handling the plastic cup and the ice cream machine is a breeze. The end effector is characterized by its versatility. In addition to its four gripper fingers, it also has a suction cup. This allows the cup to be gripped securely without pressing it in.
