KUKA LBR iisy cobot in quality assurance

LIGRE, a brand launched by Gronbach, is conquering the consumer goods industry with a fresh feature for household coffee grinders: grinding coffee to the exact gram. Previously reserved for coffee machines that were designed for the food service industry, Gronbach's development engineers relied on the support of the LBR iisy cobot from KUKA. To test for quality control, they put the new grinder's durability and compliance with the preset coffee weight through thorough examination.
