Robot integration

By inte­gra­ting robots, complex work steps in produc­tion can be automated.
They offer a very high degree of flexi­bi­lity for a wide range of hand­ling, measu­ring and set-up tasks and, with their inte­grated control system, are very econo­mical to purchase.


We support our custo­mers in various indus­tries with the imple­men­ta­tion of custo­mised solutions.

Robot integration

The large number of confi­gurable axis options for robots ensures a high degree of flexi­bi­lity in the use of robots.


Auto­matic chan­geover function
The use of auto­matic robot couplings makes it very easy to set up diffe­rent tooling and functions.


Robots can be easily retro­fitted, thereby redu­cing conver­sion and commis­sio­ning times.


Robot with inte­grated controller
As robots are usually supplied with an inte­grated controller, they can be easily inte­grated into an auto­mated process via an interface.

With our retrofit solu­tions, we bring your forming systems up to the latest state of the art and increase efficiency.
We analyse the condi­tion of your systems and create a custo­mised moder­ni­sa­tion concept that meets the highest quality and relia­bi­lity standards.


In this appli­ca­tion, an addi­tional arti­cu­lated axis was added to a 6‑axis robot. The addi­tional axis was inte­grated into the robot’s controller and the robot was controlled directly via the interface.

Questions and answers

How long does a set-up process take for a robot?

As auto­matic clut­ches are usually also used with robots, the set-up process between diffe­rent toolings is limited to a few seconds.

What is a robot?

An indus­trial robot is a programmable machine that is used in the manu­fac­tu­ring industry to auto­ma­ti­cally perform repe­ti­tive tasks. For example, it can process compon­ents, assemble products or trans­port materials.

What does a robot do?

In general, a robot can be seen as a machine that replaces or supple­ments human labour in order to auto­mate, improve or opti­mise processes.

Which parts are produced with robots?

For the most part, compon­ents are blanks that are fed into a forming process or moulded compon­ents that are processed or finished in a further produc­tion step.

How does a robot work?

A typical indus­trial robot consists of a mecha­nical arm, which is made up of several joints, and an end effector, which includes tools or grip­ping devices. The robot is programmed by soft­ware that enables it to control the move­ments of the arm and the end effector to perform specific tasks.

What are the advantages of a robot?

A robot has a high degree of move­ment flexi­bi­lity due to its large number of axes. This allows a wide range of hand­ling tasks to be covered.

How fast is a robot like this?

Depen­ding on the task, a robot can have a cycle rate of approx. 30 parts per minute.

Why robot integration from Hagel Automation?

Robot inte­gra­tion from Hagel Auto­ma­tion is a good choice, as the company has many years of expe­ri­ence and exper­tise in the deve­lo­p­ment and manu­fac­ture of auto­ma­tion solu­tions. Hagel Auto­ma­tion specia­lises in the produc­tion of custo­mised auto­ma­tion systems.

Can a robot be retrofitted in an automated system?

As a rule, a robot can be easily retro­fitted to an exis­ting system.

What weight can be moved with a robot?

Depen­ding on the size of the robot and its reach, blanks or compon­ents weig­hing between 20 and 150 kg can be moved.

Where are robots used?

Robots are used in the series produc­tion of sheet metal and formed parts in the auto­mo­tive industry or white goods.
