SIGMA – The preparation of the first demonstrator

Advanced Robotic Technology for Handling Soft Materials in Manufacturing Sectors

SIGMA Clermont is collaborating directly with Michelin in the #SoftManBot project in order to prepare a first demonstrator.
In this setup, installed at Michelin facilities at Ladoux, a robotic arm system will use Zimmer Group‘s grippers in order to assemble the components of a #tyre. The general software architecture proposed by SIGMA Clermont will not only be useful for this Michelin demo but for all the other manufacturing use-cases: #footwear with PLASTINHER SL#clothes with Decathlon International and #toys with INDUSTRIA AUXILIAR JUEMA SL.
