Automation and Handling

When it comes to automation with robots, CARAT can optimally contribute its knowledge and experience from more than 25 years and over 1100 robots sold. The elaboration of a concept and the project planning of the plant is the first and most important step to ensure the evaluation of the investment. It does not matter whether a robot with 5 kg or with 300 kg maximum payload is used or whether it will be an application with a collaborating robot - i.e. cobot.
As a general contractor, we integrate the competencies of our network partners and can thus open up new fields of application for our customers.
