Case 3 – KITTY


Create a modular system to automatically assembles kits of small components. (e.g.: screws, bearings, small abs parts, etc.) This will be applied to the Opsoro project.
Product description

Kitty is a dynamic Kitting Machine which is deployable in various sectors and easily adaptable to change. It presents the perfect solution for the assemblage of the ONO, a social robotics platform. The modular structure of the robot allows customization and alteration by the user. As a result, each order needs to be separately processed.

When an order is placed, Kitty prepares for assemblage by counting and setting apart the corresponding metal hardware. Simultaneously the bins that contain the required larger single components, light up. An employee can easily collect all the components and the already assorted hardware.

The enhanced component cabinet can be increased or reduced as needed. Future possibilities include linking the system directly with a webshop and automatically printing shipping labels and order forms.

Team: Boi Joeri, Ideler Pieter, Willems Brecht

We tested the paper gutters and they proved too weak to hold. 3D printing was necessary.

Test 6: Gutter

JBoi : December 9, 2015 02:18 : Case03_2015

Different gutter prototypes on the computer, optimized for the best angle through simulations. Frankenstein prototypes were made previously to test the result. However, there are no pictures of this setup.
