Our technical skills: Robotics

At the heart of our expertise in Industrial Robotics

B2C Engineering focuses on the integration of innovative and sustainable solutions, taking into account the needs and constraints, particularly financial, of our industrial customers.

B2C Engineering works on the design, integration, commissioning and maintenance of robotic islands with multi-brand robots, including the manufacture of customised and small series machines. We also offer robot integration simulation using Visual Components software in order to provide you with the optimum solution for your needs.

Coupled with a mastery of the latest market technologies from ABB, FANUC or Stöbl, our expertise also includes retrofitting and revamping of your automation systems. This way, your company will be able to improve its performance in a sustainable development and investment process.

Zoom on a robotisation mission for one of our customers in the transport sector.

The technical project

Description of the project

B2C Engineering was entrusted with a mission of robotization in the casting of prefabricated concrete elements, for one of our customers in Belgium.

Our team studied the operation of the installation on the basis of the functional analysis provided by the client in order to set up a programming adapted to the process.
Together with our electrical partner, we took care of the electrification of the entire system.

The team then worked on the automation part and carried out the developments in accordance with the customer’s standards.
