Company Profile:

LIP Automation was funded in 2014 as an official Start-up of the Lucerne University Applied Sciences and Arts in Switzerland. The 3 co-founders bring expertise in different areas:

  • automation, process control, industrial robotics (KUKA, Stäubli, ABB)
  • mechanics, construction
  • software
  • production, logistics
  • sensors (force, laser, vision)

LIP Automation develops advanced automation solutions around industrial robots that integrate modern sensors. The coordination of several robots, the development of customized vision solutions or the design of new gripers complete our competencies.

 

Expertise description:

The expertise of LIP Automation to integrate robotics systems lies in the following areas:

Robotics:

  • Experience with three different industrial robots manufacturers: KUKA, Stäubli and ABB
  • KUKA:
    • KRL Programming
    • Force torque control option to correct robot motions using force and torque sensors
    • Robot Sensor Interface (RSI) option to exchange date in real-time with an external PLC; The external PLC can correct trajectories in real-time
    • Master-Master communication over EtherCAT
  • Stäubli:
    • VAL3 Programming
    • Use of Stäubli fast inputs together with a touch probe to calibrate base and tools
    • EtherCAT option: Date exchange in real-time between several Stäubli robots and an external EtherCAT PLC

Sensors:

  • Displacement and position: Intensive use of laser and confocal sensors from MicroEpsilon to scan surfaces or to calibrate the robot
  • Forces/Torques: Use of low-cost strain gauges to control the robot force (constant grinding pressure on the workpiece for example)
  • Touch-probe: Use of touch probes mounted on the robot flange to determine the base coordinate system or to calibrate the robot

Automation systems:

  • Ethernet-based fieldbus
  • Integration of sensors and actuators with different interfaces (RS232/485, CAN, Modus, TCP/IP, etc.)
  • Master-Master communication

Software:

  • Graphical user interface
  • Real-time charts
  • Database connection

Vision:

  • Camera-based robot calibration
  • Pick & Place for small pieces
  • Open CV

Product development:

  • Gripper
  • Clamping
  • Direct positioning
  • Special solutions
  • Safety systems
  • Turbines grinding
  • Automatic tool changer
  • Automatic gripper changer

Computer aided design (CAD):

  • Siemens NX CAM
  • Automation of technical processes
  • System construction
  • Simplification of design
  • Special solutions

Implementing:

  • Initial startup
  • Assembling
  • Acceptance test
  • Technical documentation

Manufacture:

  • Value stream mapping
  • Siemens Tecnomatix
  • Streamline production
  • Accelerated production
