Abstract

Automated assembly of microsystems is often characterised by small batch sizes combined with high product diversity. This characteristics demand a large number of endeffectors. In the last years in particular grippers have been developed for automatic assembly of hybrid microsystems. These have been optimised for a specific task and have one thing in common: there is no compatible interface. From the economic point of view the application of a construction kit is a sensible approach enabling both:
  • quick system configuration as well as initial operation of customised automated solutions and

  • quick system reconfiguration for adapting the customised handling system to different applications even in the process. In this context standardisation of interfaces is obligatory for universal application and expandability of the system.

However, up to now the field of microsystems assembly is also characterised by strict specialisation of automation solutions to specific tasks and consequently low modularity and rare standardisation of interfaces.
