SIR Soluzioni Industriali Robotizzate Spa SIR
SIR S.p.A. is one of the biggest and most famous industrial robot system integrator in Italy: originally founded as an industrial research and engineering company, in 1984 they first developed “Tomcat” a pioneer 6 DOF anthropomorpic robot (realizing both the mechatronics design and control system) and then specialized in developing highly innovative industrial robotics applications and applied research. SIR SpA is now part of B&T Group SpA, a major industrial automation and production lines builder in ceramics and sanitary industry. Every SIR robotic solution relies intensively on high technologies as artificial vision systems, compliant spindles and grippers, offline programming and custom designed tool machines and mechatronic devices internally developed. At the present time SIR S.p.A. developed more than 3000 robotics applications in many different industrial fields (e.g.: automotive, aeronautics, pharmaceutics, plastics, tiles, foundry, general industry, food & beverage, sanitary & ceramics, etc.). SIR S.p.A., in particular, realized many innovative robotic finishing, deburring and polishing applications as well as the robotic intelligent deburring of crankshafts and engine heads at the Ferrari Auto’s, Ducati and Lamborghini plants. SIR S.p.A. has integrated almost every brand of industrial robots like Kuka, Fanuc, Motoman, Comau and is one of the five world strategic partners of ABB Robotics while closely collaborates with Schunk GmbH, whose represents the first Italian customer, in real applications and research studies. The results of SIR S.p.A. researches are recognizable by more than 20 patents and several funded research projects.
