Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to stream line the material handling tasks between assembly stations, by implementing a low-cost automation system, reducing costs and time and increasing the efficiency. The methods used to design such a system are Karakuri and SCRUM. The Karakuri low cost system is to rely on the existing energy, like the potential energy of the components, to put the mechanism in motion. The SCRUM method is to divide the study in different phases of development and to present a fully developed solution the end of each phase. Also to increase the level of definition along the duration of the thesis and to finally yield a factory-ready solution, suitable to be implemented. As a conclusion, the thesis demonstrates how automation is possible without high implementation costs and inflexibility characteristics of the commonly used robots.
