Today we would like to introduce you to our special guest from our spring festival.

The cocktail robot was developed and built by students of the TS Aalen as part of a technical project.

The cocktails are mixed in a total of three steps. In the first step, the cup moves on the Igus axis system to the spirits, which are then dosed using the stored recipes. Next, the robot moves to the other ingredients, such as orange juice, and adds them. Finally, the mixing is done at a turning station by a spoon.

The robot’s axis modules are controlled via a Siemens S7 1200 PLC. This is connected to the Igus axis modules via Profinet, which then convert the values coming from the PLC into absolute positions. Furthermore, the control system monitors the fill levels of the individual ingredients and, if necessary, switches to other full bottles of the same product.

The cocktail robot can mix up to 12 different cocktails. Recipe management and composition can be entered intuitively on the touch panel.

Many thanks to the TS Aalen technicians for the great implementation of this project!
