Human machine cooperation

The mounting system LeanFit from the Daimler AG gives an outlook on the future collaboration between man and machine in modern assembly workstations. Defortec developed the design concept and the functional structure of the entire system consisting of the Leanfit gripper system, control unit and control box. Defortec manufactured and supplied this system in record time, which was presented to the audience at the annual meeting in 2016 in Berlin. The main focus of the development was on an optimized user ergonomy and compliance with the strict MRK guidelines.
