Roboshop

An unusual exhibit in the Technik Museum Sinsheim is an industrial robot interacting with the museums visitors and selling souvenir items like books, coins and CD's. The robot was developed in cooperation with the member companies of the Technik Museum Sinsheim e.V. The requirement that the Kuka-Robot should interact with the visitors was a special challenge. The company Schunk (Lauffen, Germany) delievered special grasping tools for the robot. Another challange was the shelving system where the robot could take the goods - a problem that the company Festo (Esslingen, Germany) solved with two special storage magazines.

A popular museum souvenir is a coin with a Concorde motif. After the article was selected by the customer, the robot puts the coin to a special laser component built by Trumpf (Ditzingen, Germany). On the reverse side of the coin the laser is writing the date of the museums visit and after that the coin is given to the vistor. From the idea to the completion of the Roboshop it took exactly two years. Now the Roboshop is part of the permanent exhibition of the museum and one of many examples of cooperations with leading companies of German industry.
