Automation at joke


In the industry, constant efforts are made to explore possibilities for optimizing the quality and cost-effectiveness of applied processes. This fosters innovation and engagement with new techniques.

In recent years, we have successfully ventured into a new business area in the field of automation. High personnel costs and a shortage of skilled workers contribute to a growing interest in this segment.

joke mechanix GmbH offers automation solutions in various areas. Our portfolio ranges from smaller applications to fully automated packaging lines for food bags. Adapting our automation systems to third-party machines is also possible.

Reach out to us and present us with our next challenge!





Robot Fanuc


Robots are finding more and more applications in automation.

joke mechanix GmbH uses robots from Fanuc to be able to carry out precise and consistent processes around the clock.

They can be used in a variety of ways and facilitate stable and safe production.


Offline programming


Offline programming is the programming of the robot outside of its “normal” production environment, on an external computer. Offline programming only requires about 1/10 of the time it would take to expand a program with online teaching.

This can minimize production disruptions and maximize effectiveness.

In addition, offline programming enables the programs to be simulated in advance. This means that errors can be found and repaired at an early stage without collisions having to occur. Furthermore, the parameters of the system or cell, as well as the joint angles, speed and acceleration of the robot can be monitored and optimally adjusted.

Our engineering team at joke develops offline programming concepts for robot cells. In the example shown here, an individual processing cell in combination with a Nachi robot.

The focus here is not on packaging or moving bags, but on automating processes related to surface processing. Theoretically, this can be anything from simply moving workpieces to complex high-gloss polishing.

In the picture you can see that the robot stores new workpieces in its tray and gradually polishes them.
Get in touch with us and we will work with you to develop a solution tailored to your needs that automates your processes.


Robo systems


Automatic packaging systems are also available for our assembly lines. We offer solutions with robots as well as individual automation systems.
The video shows a 4-use paper composite bag system with a gripper system to automatically pack the stacks of bags into boxes. The number of boxes and the number of bags can be freely chosen.
A control function places bags on a separate storage conveyor for quality assurance. The robotic and packaging systems can also be retrofitted and used on existing customer systems.
