The next generation of machine tools
Stand number: 38
The NEXT project aimed to bring the European production machinery industry to new frontiers by designing the next generation of machine tools. Six demonstrators and five prototypes were developed in this project, including the Par2 robot which will be presented at our stand.
Par2 is the fastest 2 degree-of-freedom robot in the world for pick and place applications. The field of application of this type of robots is very broad and spans various sectors in great need of automation, like food and agriculture. The production of this robot involved two European partners, Tecnalia and LIRMM.
