Design of a virtual robot cell at IKEA Industry : Digital twin of a packaging robot cell

University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för maskinteknik (MT)

Abstract: This report studies how a digital twin can be utilized through offlinerobot programming and simulation for a robot packaging line;additionally, the advantages and challenges of a robot digital twin arereported. This thesis project and the robot simulation is done incollaboration with Ikea Industry.The obtained result was in form of a digital twin which is a digital copyof a physical robot cell at Ikea Industry’s packaging line. The resultsshow that a digital twin can indeed be utilized for layout planning androbot optimization. An energy consumption chart which depends on thetime taken to package ten boards was created. This chart can be used forfurther optimization of the robot cell.The study also shows that a digital twin can save time and money,especially in the design phase, for medium to small companies that donot have the resources to create a dedicated physical robot cell fortesting.
