More competitive through automation

Mechanical Engineering in the 21st Century

Unchained Robotics offers a wide range of robots, grippers, cameras, and pre-built automation solutions for the mechanical engineering industry. We can help automate a variety of mechanical engineering processes including screwing, sanding, welding, and others. Compete, grow, and thrive through automation.

Mechanical Engineering in an Increasingly Automated world

The Mechanical Engineering industry has always been one of change. In the 21st century, it is an industry that has changed evolved substantially and will continue to evolve well into the future. Increasing labor cost, overseas competition, stricter safety standards, and even labor shortages are driving the industry to adopt cutting-edge automation solutions. Advances in robotics have made automation easier to use, less expensive, and far more versatile. Leveraging this technology is the key to being competitive in tomorrow’s market.

Collaborative robots in Mechanical Engineering


Cobots meet strict safety requirements that allow for their utilization in close proximity to people or even work directly with them as part of a hybrid process. This means that the robot can perform more human-like tasks or simply make a current human worker more efficient.

Easy to Integrate

Thanks to this capacity for collaboration, companies in Mechanical Engineering do not need to completely rebuild their processes and lines around robots themselves. This means that previous investments in machinery can be partially or fully automated without massive changes to the production line or the deprecation recently purchased machinery.


Collaborative robots are in general much easier to program and repurpose than traditional industrial robots, allowing for much greater adaptability. Often, reprogramming a cobot perform a new task on a new line or a new batch is something that any operator can be trained to do. Cobots make factories more agile and responsive to market changes.

01. Use Case:


Screwdriving is one of the most common processes in machine construction. It can also be easily automated.

Example requirements

Below is an example requirement based on this industry.

Metal plate

15 cm x 20 cm


30 mm



Proposed solution

A powerful mid-sized cobot from Doosan

With a range of 900 m and a maximum payload of 6,000 g, the Doosan M0609 is ideal for applications like screwdriving.

Automated screwdriving from OnRobot

The OnRobot Screwdriver is a robotic screwdriver that can be easily integrated into a large number of common cobots. It can handle a wide range of screw sizes from M1.6 to M6 and up to 50 mm in length. It also offers precise torque control ranging from 0.15 Nm to 5 Nm.

A powerful depth camera for machine vision applications

The Framos d435e depth camera has a field of view of 86° x 57° and a working distance of 200-10,000 mm, making it an ideal imaging solution for this bolting application.

02. Use Case:


Grinding is a common task in all industries that shape and machine metal, it is also notoriously monotonous. See how it can be automated in three steps.

Example requirements

Below you will find an example requirement based on this industry.

Metal plate

500 x 500 mm

Required time per piece

1 min

Grinding pattern


Proposed solution

A balance of reach and payload

With a payload of 6 kg and a reach of 1700 mm, the Doosan M0617 combines a long reach with a considerable payload. This is an ideal combination for grinding applications and allows for superior flexibility.

Fast, easy and flexible automated grinding

The OnRobot Sander is an end-of-arm tool for grinding and polishing applications. Its user-friendly software and optional automatic grit changer make it an ideal solution for this use case.

A strong foundation for automation

The ibk CobotBase provides an excellent basis for a possible grinding solution. The CobotSocket minimizes the footprint of the cobot and maximizes stability.
