Future CT Pack’s smart robot awarded among best R&D projects in Emilia-Romagna
CT Pack has been selected to receive contributions from POR FESR 2014-2020, the European regional development funds program, to develop a new smart robot project.
These competitive awards are allocated to projects in various sectors, including technical Research & Development — a field in which the company is a key player.
Our project involves development of a parallel and parametric modular (Delta) robot with high load capacity and intelligence.
In addition, the new robot will be designed for more efficient use of smart-grip multigrippers and will be equipped with a unified control system for management of picking, placing and multigripper strategies (smart picking).
The deltas will be distinguished by a modular composition and structure, increased load capacity and complete integration. They will also be fully open to all possible vision systems for product acquisition (IR systems, X-Ray, 3D vision) and cost reduction.
The projected contribution of about EUR 150,000 is aimed at increasing the economic profile and attractiveness of Emilia Romagna, a region that is known for strong growth and technological innovation.
