Thanks to Kuka Robots for this video of the robotic part removal and die casting lubricant application for a major automotive manufacturer's plant.
From Kuka's YouTube channel, "When AUDI AG decided to invest in a new robotic die casting lubricant application and part removal for the experimental foundry at the Ingolstadt works, the company looked for an automatic handling solution to go with it. The requirements were process reliability, repeatability, short cycle times and high flexibility, in order to be able to produce as large a range of parts as possible in limited space."
From Wikipedia, "KUKA is a German manufacturer of industrial robots and solutions for factory automation. The KUKA Robotics Corporation has 25 subsidiaries worldwide, mostly sales and service subsidiaries, including in the United States, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Russia and most European countries. The company name, KUKA, is an acronym for Keller und Knappich Augsburg."
