Production cell - Masterfoam

Masterfoam cell Cobot
Masterfoam specializes in manufacturing products from flexible materials. Customers at Masterfoam operate in a wide variety of industries. Masterfoam has a production facility where foam materials are processed using a wide range of production techniques and machinery.


One of the products Masterfoam produces large numbers of was in need of an automation solution. The goal was to reduce the human labor required, increase production capacity and obtain a stable and reliable process. Here it was important that:

  • Several round cuts can be made in the product
  • Full incision can be made for a sticker
  • Sticker can be automatically applied in the product
  • Several similar types of products can be produced
  • Production can be unmanned for at least 8 hours
  • High accuracy is achieved
  • The cobot is multi-purpose

In this project, a production cell was built in which a Twin-Tech Flex booth with UR 10 cobot was deployed. This created a flexible solution where the cobot can also be easily removed from the cell and used elsewhere in production.

A centering system and integrated zero measurement setup ensure the reproducibility of cobot operations. This production cell concept ensures flexibility and better payback time.
