Piccolos pilot project is in cooperation with CEDIS Components GmbH, Delfoi Ltd. and Systemworkx PLM GmbH. Fraunhofer Ipa and Danish Technological Institute are ROBOTT-NET partners on the project.

This project will bring the new generation of efficient robot programming for small lot size welding to SME shop floors demonstrated in the productions of two SME end users, Piccolo and CEDIS components. 

Building on two successful voucher projects within ROBOTT-NET, the benefits and feasibility of this new technology have already been proven.

Cognitive technologies enable the robot system to automatically recognize possible weld seams on the products’ CAD model in the way a human welder would look at a workpiece and know where to weld it. 3D-sensors and intelligent image processing techniques allow for a precise workpiece localization.
