Automated kitting for complex and diverse applications is the name of Nissan’s pilot project that is in cooperation with Loop Technology Limited and HSSMI with ROBOTT-NET partners The Manufacturing Technology Centre and Fraunhofer IPA.

This Pilot will build on the voucher work and build a robotic test cell that enables Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK to develop automated kitting capability for its part families.

The cell is intended to be modular and scalable built on low cost, commercially available hardware integrated together with advanced software capability available from the RTOs. For the Pilot the demo cell will focus on picking and placing of a range of families into a kit box, with the aim that the cell could be integrated into the existing systems as its safety, capability and reliability are proven.
